Hotmaps is a GIS-based online software that supports authorities and energy planners to set up a strategic heating and cooling plan for their region. The definite version of the tool is now available at www.hotmaps.eu and tool developers will continue to improve it and add new calculation modules for heating and cooling planning until the end of the project life.

The heat being wasted across Europe could cover 100% of our buildings’ needs. District heating and cooling networks can utilise excess heat available from various sources, including excess heat from urban facilities (i.e. data centres, sewage collectors, cooling systems of tertiary buildings, underground stations). However, due to some regulatory challenges, lack of large-scale replicable demonstrators and appropriate financial support schemes this opportunity is wasted.

The energy and carbon footprint of urban areas will increase with urbanisation and the growing economic activity of urban citizens.
The decarbonisation of cities and city districts presents an imperative and an obvious area of priority.
Districts, in particular, have specific opportunities to drive the decarbonization efforts as they know best about their local needs and locally available infrastructure and resources.
