Hotmaps first tutorial is available!

During the next EU Sutainable Energy Week – on June 20th at 11 a.m. – we will present how Hotmaps supported/is supporting the development of local energy strategy in 7 different areas.

by Magdalena Kowalska, PlanEnergi Hotmaps’ open source data set and GIS-toolbox was successfully used for developing energy decarbonisation strategies for nine European regions as part of the Interreg Europe project DeCarb.

The Hotmaps team just published a set of “how to” documents to support the users of the software.

Heating and cooling will play a decisive role in the long-term decarbonisation of Europe’s energy system: the sector is responsible for 51% of final energy use in Europe and about 27% of CO2 emissions – only 19% of the heating and cooling final energy demand is coming from renewable sources. Considering the increased level of ambition… Read more »

The Hotmaps software beta version is now available! This tool allows users to browse through a European map and retrieve information on space heating and hot water demand, CO2 emissions as well as potentials for renewable supply like biomass and solar energy on a spatially disaggregated level. Users are able to select their regions and… Read more »
