The team behind one of the flagships web-based applications of the project has developed a pre-prototype feel and touch layout for users.
The Replication Tool will be a software able to evaluate the techno-economic potential of SHIP solution starting from local solar potential and current process heat demand, and to provide recommendations for the most suitable solution. To reach these goals four module work together: Solar Mapping Module, Module for Industrial Process Demand Characterization, Simulation Module and Integration Module. This means many inputs and different steps are required. But we want to provide a user-friendly tool. Thus, a first prototype layout has been designed in order to evaluate the tool’s complexity. Now the prototype includes the Solar Mapping Module and the Module for Industrial Process Demand Characterization, but by next July other modules will be integrated. Stay tuned!
