The SO WHAT project is on the right track! That was the overall conclusion from the review meeting that we held on February 23 with our Project Officer and the European Commission representatives.
Over 18 months, the consortium members have worked hard to research and leverage previous existing knowledge and an already existing tool, to set up the basis for the development of the SO WHAT integrated tool.
The software has now entered the development phase, and later it will be tested across the different demo sites that are active part of the project.
The tool is expected to 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.
