Comsof Heat is a heat network mapping tool that follows the Heat Network Development Unit (HNDU) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) design and development process. Comsof Heat is applicable from the heat mapping and master planning stage through to detailed project development.


Comsof is organising a Comsof Heat Open Training. This training will give you an overview of the key benefits and functionalities of our software and will allow you to asses if the software is suitable for your business and your type of projects. COMSOF works at any scale from dozens to thousands of buildings.

It requires fewer man hours to provide more detailed scenarios that are easier to scrutinise and improve. Multiple scenarios can be calculated and visualised in a workshop setting. These scenarios can be compared against different feasibility, planning and finance criteria at the same time.

The target audience includes representatives of local authorities and governments, planners & designers from engineering & consultancy firms and district heating operators, partners…who are working on energy master planning, feasibility studies, business case development and techno-economic assessment of  district heating networks. The training includes theory and practice. For the practical exercises you will receive a trial version of the software for a period of 2 months.
