Training & Tool Materials

Would you like to adopt THERMOS professionally and become fully proficient in using it? Explore our Training & tool materials below guiding you from taking your first steps with the software to adopting THERMOS professionally for different purposes and processes linked to the energy transition.

The materials have been developed, updated and improved over the course of four training programmes and the work with our cities and energy stakeholders from across Europe.

Be it for conducting your own pre-feasibility and case studies, fine tuning existing results & figures, conducting research or improving your stakeholder engagement and financing methods, by completing the steps below you will be able to confidently:

  1. Apply THERMOS and its features for optimised energy system mapping and modelling
  2. Develop your own case studies with the tool
  3. Integrate results of the THERMOS software in urban planning or research processes
  4. Identify key district energy planning and financing methods
  5. Connect the role of local heating & cooling to national to EU climate & energy policy & dynamics
  6. Outline key concepts of stakeholder engagement for local thermal project planning
  7. Improve local energy and climate action planning
