Via the District Mapping Module (DMM) the end-user is able to:
- Evaluate the current heating and cooling demand (heating, cooling, domestic hot water) for a specific district (to be drawn directly on the map) or for a group of buildings. This can be selected directly on the map. The evaluation of the heating, cooling and domestic hot water demand of the buildings enable the end-user to assess heating and cooling demand of different building sectors (residential/tertiary), different types of heating and cooling generation in terms of level of temperature (low, medium, high, domestic hot water), different types of buildings (with pre-defined categories in the tertiary sector such as schools, hospitals, offices etc.) and age of the buildings. Thus, it provides insights and identifies buildings for which renovations and update of the heating system should be prioritised.
- Evaluate future demand, proposing interventions at building level (type of buildings, single building level), evaluating their effects on the demand;
- Identifying Urban Heat Island effects;
- See on the maps which are areas where heating and cooling demand is high/critical;
- Draw and study demand of new/future district heating networks.
