What does it mean to be a certified THERMOS Trainer?
THERMOS Trainers are all those energy planning experts and stakeholders that completed all steps of our training and are thus fully confident to:
- Apply the THERMOS software and its features for optimised energy system mapping and modelling
- Develop preliminary case studies and complete basic planning exercises with THERMOS
- Train others to apply THERMOS
- Integrate results of the THERMOS software in urban planning processes
- Identify key district energy planning and financing methods
- Connect the role of local heating & cooling to dynamics of heat demand/supply in Europe
- Outline key concepts of stakeholder engagement processes for local thermal project planning
- Improve local energy and climate action planning
Trainers will receive a certificate, including a supplement document stating the obtained competences, skills and knowledge.

Get Inspired with THERMOS Case Studies
Get inspired for whats possible with THERMOS by real case studies developed with THERMOS by previous Training participants.
- Eurométropole de Strasbourg: Assessing implications of a district heating network for the area of Lingolsheim, France (Dec 2019).
- SF2E - Manergy: Assessing feasibility and cost-effectiveness of a DHC network for Meylan, France (Dec 2019)
- ALL Ing ABATE: Development of a Heat Network for municipal buildings in San Lucido, Italy(Dec 2019)
- Read the THERMOS Innovation Catalogue to get inspire by real-life low-carbon district heating and cooling projects
- Consult the THERMOS Baseline Replication Report (2018) from our THERMOS cities
For all those who made it to this stage of the text after having faithfully consulted all our material: You are really committed to become part of Pathway D and to roll-out energy efficient, low-carbon district energy solutions. Until the Training starts there is only one thing left to do: Do good and talk about it!
Let your colleagues, partners, customers and other peers know about the opportunity the THERMOS tool & free Training offers!
Find below helpful materials to spread the word and introduce your peers to the THERMOS software to work as a team!
- THERMOS Software Brochure available in all THERMOS languages
- THERMOS Software Pitch Presentation (soon to come in all languages)
For the sceptic
Need hard proof for all the claims we make above before spending your time? Read up on the science behind THERMOS in our academic publications on the tool, the THERMOS Baseline Replication Report (2018) from the eight THERMOS cities and hear from Trainers themselves about the programme and software on THERMOS Voices.
