Short description: When replacing an old fossil fuel central home heating system by a modern pellet heating solution, detailed planning of the placement of boilers and storage in the existing rooms is needed. This time-consuming task (onsite measuring and planning) should be sped up by a new 3D planning tool.
Market potential: Converting fossil to renewable heating is expected to generate billions of investments in the coming years. Digitisation services for this industry offers many future business opportunities.
Timing: Due to the booming market, the sooner, the better! All over Europe, there is a lack of qualified heating professionals. Tools like this one could help speed up the clean energy transition in Europe.
Desired result: Software should support installers in planning in an existing residential building: data from a laser measuring device is entered into the floor plan. Specific boiler products can be chosen and are automatically placed, respecting all technical requirements, and visualised.
Information on challenge owner: Mid-Cap (250-3,000 staff).
Market presence of challenge owner: Global presence.
