Throughout the Heat Roadmap Europe projects, maps have been produced both at a European and at a national scale. For more information on how to use the maps, including the interactive Pan-European Thermal Atlas, watch the Video Tutorial for Using the Maps (15 minutes).
The 4th Pan-European Thermal Atlas (Peta 4) covers the 14 EU member states that are part of the Heat Roadmap Europe 4 project, which comprise about 90% of the total heat market of the European Union. The aim of Peta 4 is on one side to supply specific and realistic heat demand data by costs of infrastructure development and access to renewable energy sources, on the other to facilitate dissemination of the conditions to develop DHC solutions across Europe.
Currently Peta 4_v1.0 contains a 100m resolution grid of the modelled heat demand in 2015, a layer showing city areas where district heating systems exist in these countries, as well as a database of modelled excess heat supply. Compared to Peta 3, Peta 4 covers more of Europe at a higher resolution, and includes more information on excess heat facilities and existing diastrict heating systems while allowing for better viewing, sharing and communication of smart heating solutions for Europe. The Peta 4 Atlas is being published using ArcGIS Online, and will be the subject of the first HRE workshop, where participants will be introduced to the platform and shown how it can be used.
These versions (Peta4alpha) are PDF representations of the GIS data, and are best viewed at full resolution when downloaded. The interactive version will include further refinement, and overlay between heat demands and sustainable and renewable resources.
One of the main outcomes of the HRE projects has been the development and continued improvements on the interactive Pan-European Thermal Atlas (Peta).
Discover heating and cooling demands at a high resolution, sources and availability of excess heat, renewable heat potentials, and prospective district heating systems.
A video tutorial (15 mins) is available.

Using this map, you can download a variety of resources linked to specific countries in Europe. The map includes some reports and maps made by other parties, where indicated. To include your maps or add a link, please contact us.
This system presents the geothermal resource assessment and highlights the areas where potential for geothermal district heating exists. Based on currently available information in terms geological data, already operational district heating systems, and heat demand, it shows the potential in the 14 project countries: Italy, France, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, United Kingdom, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, Denmark, and Hungary.
The primary aim of this Global Solar Atlas is to provide quick and easy access to solar resource data globally, at a click of a mouse. GIS layers and poster maps showing global, regional, and country resource potential can be found in the Downloads section. Further description of the data provided, the methodology for estimating solar resource potential, and guidance on how to use it, can be found in the Knowledge Base section.
