An unique tool for heating and cooling planning (HotMaps)
The EU-funded project HotMaps aims at designing a toolbox to support public authorities, energy agencies and urban planners in strategic heating and cooling planning on local, regional and national levels, and in line with EU policies.
In addition to guidelines and handbooks on how to carry out strategic heating and cooling (H&C) planning, HotMaps will provide the first H&C planning software that is
- User-driven: developed in close collaboration with 7 European pilot areas.
- Open source: the developed tool and all related modules will run without requiring any other commercial tool or software. No restrictions in use and access to the source code.
- EU-28 compatible: the tool will be applicable for cities in all 28 EU Member States.
