Fluidit Heat

As climate change will make our planet warmer, there will be more need for high-quality heating and cooling energy systems. Energy efficiency will be the core designing parameter on these systems of the future. Fluidit Heat can model district heating and -cooling networks as complex as possible with prosumers and multiple production facilities.
