The software has two interoperable modules. The first is a simulation tool for testing new configurations, like connecting additional end users to a heating network. The second is an online mode that helps operators optimize energy production and distribution and make their heating networks greener and more efficient. The software was scaled up to cover large urban networks as well as neighborhood-scale microgrids and has been successfully rolled out in the French cities of Grenoble and Metz.
