Decarbonising our economy is the transitional challenge of our age. As we chase down the mega-tonnes of greenhouse gas on our way to Net Zero, it is likely that we will face further demands to understand the energy and emissions system in more detail.
I will share the story of our recent Digital Twin demonstrator project for the UK Government department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, a collaboration between the Alan Turing Institute, Energy Systems Catapult and CityScape Digital. The vision is to allow all customers to interact directly with fine-grained modelling through visualisations that make the future seem real. Along the way we see the roles played by artificial intelligence, architectural CGI and 3D gaming from the creators of Fortnite.
