THERMOS Training

Would you like to become an expert THERMOS software user conducting optimised heating and cooling planning more cost- and time effectively? Explore our Training materials below guiding you from taking your first steps with the software to adopting THERMOS professionally.

The materials have been developed, updated and improved over the course of four training programmes to enable you to evaluate and identify your optimal solution for the upgrade, refurbishment and expansion of an existing heating and cooling network or the development of new low-carbon ones within minutes.

By following and completing the steps below you will be able to confidently:

  1. Apply the THERMOS software 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 processes
  4. Identify key district energy planning and financing methods
  5. Connect the role of local heating & cooling to dynamics of heat demand/supply in the EU
  6. Outline key concepts of stakeholder engagement for local thermal project planning
  7. Improve local energy and climate action planning
