Training Programme for optimised thermal district energy planning

Share this Post:

THERMOS energy planning software interface

Are you interested in supporting better heating and cooling planning, and in implementing better local sustainable energy and climate action plans and projects? Would you like to get certified for having acquired and demonstrated knowledge and competencies in this field?


The online THERMOS Train-the-Trainer programme (TtT) aims to train local and regional energy authorities, energy agencies, representatives from public or private utilities, and other stakeholders managing local energy networks to use and apply the THERMOS software.


Work with and learn from THERMOS to achieve a faster upgrade, refurbishment and expansion of existing thermal district energy infrastructure, and to accelerate the development of new low-carbon heating and cooling systems across Europe.


Be amongst the first to test and apply the THERMOS software, develop your own case study with THERMOS, and receive exclusive guidance on how to best apply the software for your purposes.


Participants will be awarded a testifying certificate stating the competences and knowledge acquired, after participation in three live webinars taking place on 24 September, 8 October, and 22 October at 16:00 CET, as well as completion of the development of a case study using THERMOS.


24th September 2019 - 16:00CET
Kick off - Energy system mapping and modelling with THERMOS 

8th October 2019 - 16:00CET
Embedding THERMOS in your city

22nd October 2019 - 16:00CET
Optimizing thermal planning, resources and technologies with THERMOS


THERMOS TtT will not only provide participants with up-to-date knowledge about innovation and best practices in heating and cooling from city practitioners, but will also enable participants to:

  • Understand and explain the importance of district energy planning, with an emphasis on thermal energy networks planning.
  • Use and apply the THERMOS software and its features, including energy system mapping and modelling optimisation methods.
  • Develop a case study with THERMOS.
  • Learn how to integrate results from the THERMOS software in urban planning processes.
  • Identify key district energy planning and financing methods.
  • Improve local energy and climate action planning.

Find all details about the programme, its webinars and schedule on the THERMOS project website.
