THE HOTMAPS TOOLBOX – Supporting strategic heating & cooling planning at local level
This brochure will guide you through strategic heat planning. You will find out how the Hotmaps toolbox works and how it supported the pilot cities in their urban energy planning.

Strategic heating and cooling planning means developing an action plan to achieve a long-term vision of the heating and cooling supply. To get there, there are usually the following steps:
- Analyse the challenges, formulate strategic objectives and identify key parameters;
- Build scenarios based on cost-effective technical solutions from a societal perspective;
