Hotmaps project

The overarching goal of Hotmaps is the development of an open source heating / cooling mapping and planning toolbox and to provide default data for EU28 at national and local level. These data and tool allow public authorities to identify, analyse, model and map resources and solutions to supply energy needs within their territory of responsibility in a resource and cost efficient way. Those results will help authorities to develop heating and cooling strategies on local, regional and national scale which are in line with RES and CO2-Emission targets on national and EU level.

THE TOOLBOX IS :

  • USER-DRIVEN
    Developed, demonstrated and validated in close collaboration with 7 European pilot areas.
  • OPEN SOURCE
    The tool and all related modules will run without requiring any other commercial tool or software. Use of and access to Source Code is subject to Open Source License.
  • EU-28 COMPATIBLE
    The tool can be used in all 28 EU Member States thanks to a default open data set.
