HEAT (Heat Energy Assessment Technologies) is a GeoWeb service, designed to help residents (i) improve their home energy efficiency, (ii) save their money, and (iii) reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by finding their HEAT Score, Hot Spots and visualizing the amount and location of waste heat leaving their homes and communities, as easily as clicking on their house in Google Maps.
HEAT's mission is to show ‘what urban energy efficiency looks like’, ‘where it is located’, ‘what it costs’ and ‘what to do about it’. We believe that if people could see the waste heat they generate and if they knew how much it cost (financially and to the environment), that they would want to take action. We want to show them how.
HEAT's vision is to empower the urban energy efficiency movement by providing free, accurate and regularly updated waste heat solutions for the world.
