Heating & cooling planning made easier – HOTMAPS online training



From 27 April 2020 to 12 May 2020

After two on-site trainings, the Hotmaps team offers now an online training, don’t miss it!

HOTMAPS is an open source online software, which allows you to provide within 5 minutes a first estimation of heating and cooling demand in your region and the potentials of local renewable energy to cover this demand. By using more detailed data, thanks to its calculation modules, you can elaborate comprehensive heating and cooling strategies. The Hotmaps toolbox has been especially designed to support the elaboration of SECAP (Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan).

HOTMAPS supports planning processes of the energy sector on the local level in a transparent manner, thanks to: a starting data set, customisations of the software for your specific needs, training and support services. The software was developed by leading research institutions across Europe together with cities. We applied and demonstrated the values of Hotmaps in seven pilot areas.

The main steps of the online training in English organised between 27th April and 12th May are:

  • Mon 27th April: a preparatory webinar,
  • Mon 4th May – Mon 11th May: intensive training days. Participants will perform the Hotmaps 5 step process for generating scenarios of future heating and cooling for a selected region.
  • Tue 12th May: Wrap up session and final remarks.
