Risk management results

Fire propagation simulator

In the second line of action, a fire propagation simulator was presented by the University of Coimbra on the REN infrastructure protection and decision support platform.

These simulators combine scientific knowledge in the area of forest fires with the most recent artificial intelligence and high-performance computing tools.

Once integrated into a management platform, combined with sensors for the detection and location of ignitions, installed in REN’s infrastructure, they will enable greater forest resilience and protect this same infrastructure from the risk of forest fire.

In this line of action, whereness gave an update on the work developed in relation to the interface for recording forest fire occurrences and showed what data can be obtained in a simulation.
