HEAT is the number one solution to the prolonged decision-making processes typically involved in energy issues. HEAT allows parties to co-design and develop a heating grid.

Quick: HEAT provides instant feedback about your own actions and those of your partners, providing an immediate and clear understanding of your and their goals and interests, funding, and the sustainability of the design.

Effective: Any range of scenarios and designs can be tested without a problem using HEAT. Decision-making is speeded up and projects are implemented quicker.

Realistic: Realistic simulations based on real data and smart mathematical models. 3D simulations of the city or neighbourhood that you and your partners wish to make greener.

What is the goal of the project?

HEAT gives local stakeholders the opportunity to co-design and develop an open heat grid. Therefore it uses 3D modelling and gamification to make the often complex decision processes go smoother.

What is the result of the project?

By accelerating decision-making processes, HEAT contributes directly to Amsterdam becoming a sustainable and future proof city.

Who initiated the project and which organizations are involved?

Alliander Duurzame Gebiedsontwikkeling & Tygron

What is the next step?

HEAT becomes integral accelerator of the energy transition and current gas and electricity infrastructures are integrated. We are also developing a new module for customer participation.

What can other cities learn from your project?

HEAT uses (Dutch) open data, which makes it easy to set up projects in other cities throughout the Netherlands and even abroad.
