Hotmaps

 

Hotmaps is a 4 years European project from October 2016 to October 2020 aiming at launching a toolbox for heating / cooling mapping. 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.

 

Hotmaps is the development of an open source heating / cooling mapping and planning toolbox to provide default data for EU28 at national and local level.

 

This leads to three main project objectives :

  1. Develop an open source toolbox (Hotmaps toolbox) that will effectively and comprehensively support local, regional and national heating and cooling planning processes.
  2. Provide a default open data set to lower the initial barrier in applying the tool for regions across EU-28 member states and include the ability that the users can adapt and provide more accurate, large and complex data for data for a specific area.
  3. Provide a tested and user friendly open source software tool which is based on user needs. Guarantee wide usability, flexible adjustability and concrete application of the tool within and beyond the project duration.

Project cofunded by H2020.
