Fomento de San Sebastián will present its experience in the use of the Hotmaps tool


On November 14th 2019 an online webinar will be held within the framework of the Hotmaps project, cofunded by the Eropean Union H2020 programme. In this meeting, Fomento de San Sebastián, Energy Cities and e-Think entities will participate, and the work done in the city using the Hotmaps tool for heating planning based on District Heating systems will be explained. San Sebastián is one of the seven cities participating and testing the new tool.


The session is open, it will be held in English on November 14th from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. For further information on the programme and to participate, register on the following website:https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/webinar-heating-and-cooling-planning-made-easier-the-hotmaps-toolbox-registration-78601843229


Heating and cooling in residential and industrial sectors accounts for half of the EU’s energy consumption. More than 80% of this energy is still generated from fossil fuels and heat losses are also significantly high.


European and international institutions recognise the importance for heating and cooling planning to achieve ambitious results. Local governments are aware this sector is key if they want their cities to be sustainable in the long term. However, a lot of knowledge and information is needed in order to develop heating and cooling strategies at local level (heat demand density, renewable energy potentials, load profiles, excess heat sources…).


The EU-funded project Hotmapscan help! Its experts designed a free and adaptable 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 your Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan.


This webinar will present the free online software, the open access datasets, the manuals and wiki. A Covenant Signatory, the Spanish city of San Sebastian, contributed the development of the toolbox and will illustrate their experience.
