Local authorities and energy planners interested in conducting better heating and cooling network planning in line with their local sustainable energy and climate action plans are invited to join the free online training programme organised by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability and the THERMOS project.
In three online live sessions and with practical online exercises, participants will be trained to apply the free THERMOS energy planning software. The web-based, free software developed as part of the THERMOS project is designed to identify optimal heating and cooling network solutions according to individual user criteria, such as emission reduction targets, budget, energy sources and required building connections. Interested participants will also have the opportunity to develop a case study together with project and software experts.
The Training will furthermore present and provide relevant knowledge about the district heating & cooling sector, thermal energy demand and supply in Europe and viable financing options for the roll-out of district network solutions.
