Country Heat Maps And Atlases

Using this interactive map, you can download a variety of resources linked to specific countries in Europe. Included are some reports and maps made during STRATEGO, a previous Heat Roadmap Europe study, as well as resources developed by other partners. If you wish your maps to be included too or add a link, please contact us.

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 (10 minutes).

The 4th Pan-European Thermal Atlas covers the 14 EU countries that are part of the Heat Roadmap Europe 4 project and together comprise about 90% of the EU’s total heat market.

Peta, which is freely accessible, provides specific and realistic heat demand data relevant to energy planning and to facilitate the development of those conditions across Europe which can drive District Heating and Cooling solutions promoted by HRE4.

Peta 4.3

The newest version, now features a complete assessment of the heating sector, from end-use via heat supply infrastructures to potential heat supply sources. Additionally, several editorial changes for improved usability and user-friendliness implemented at the web map application

New layers are added and several updates to layers from 4.2 version have been made. In particular, these changes involve operational layers for:

  • Supply
    • Allocated excess heat (new)
    • Geothermal potential (update)
    • Low-temperature excess heat from Metro stations (new)
    • Low-temperature excess heat from Waste water treatment plants (new)
  • Infrastructure
    • Recommended DH levels (new)
    • Prospective Supply Districts (update)
  • Demand
    • Cold demand density (update)


Peta 4.2

This version represents a significant update with even more valuable information available for the public to utilise. Though Peta 4.1 provided new datasets at a higher resolution than previous iterations, Peta 4.2 goes several steps beyond. Its 10 layers together supply a range of useful inputs for integration into energy planning:

  • The classification of heat synergy regions can greatly facilitate you in planning priorities to decarbonise across regions.
  • You can also discover which excess heat and renewable energy sources are just waiting to be exploited in your own area.
  • Now you not only have access to the previous cutting-edge grid of modelled heat demand from before, but also a new 100m-resolution grid portraying urban cooling demand densities.
  • Building on previous mapping of district heating systems you’ll be able to identify even more prospective supply areas, each classified by heat demand densities.
  • Finally, in order to exploit these demands effectively, you can now pinpoint where would be the most cost-effective for implementing district infrastructure in your city.
