SO WHAT’s main objective is to develop and demonstrate a market-ready integrated software that will support industries and energy utilities in simulating and comparing alternative Waste Heat and Waste Cold (WH/C) technologies, and simulate how to balance the local forecasted Heat and Cold demand and supply, including renewable energy sources integration. This is expected to reduce the cost and time related to energy audits and boost Waste Heat and Cold recovery and reuse.
To do so, SO WHAT is capitalizing already existing tool and knowledge from previous research experiences, and it will test the software in a set of demo sites across Europe that are active part of the project.
The project is now entering the software development phase and the consortium partners have prepared and launched a presentation providing an overview of this tool and including the following information:
- Overview of the tool and its functions
- A comparison between the online (free) and advanced (commercial) versions
- The industrial sectors that could be covered
- The user workflows
- A tentative timeline and current progress
This presentation is available in the documents’ section of this website and in this link.
