Arpae presents its RES HC SPREAD heatmap in Bologna

RES-HC_Sunshine_img1 Arpae and other European experts were invited to present their activities and results on crucial topics like energy efficiency, the Internet of things, energy policies and energy open data, at the final conference for the EU project, SUNSHINE.

Arpae presented the results of RES HC SPREAD project: data, maps on demand, energy supply, renewable potential and environmental sensitivity maps, as well as the participation process that led to the establishment of a shared agenda for the development of renewable sources for heating and cooling.

RES-HC_Sunshine_img2SUNSHINE is a research project supported by the European Commission and dedicated to the development of innovative digital georeferenced services, which can support the energy efficiency of both cities and buildings. The geographic and territorial data represent the core of the project.

Integrating them with other sources (e.g climate data) is fundamental to locate and monitor building consumption and to estimate the real energy needs of the residential sector, while creating an ‘energy map’ at the urban scale, thus encouraging significant energy savings.
