Digital Energy Twins

Award Winner is also Research Innovation

Stephen Cousins reports that researchers at Newcastle University are studying energy use by creating a ‘Digital Twin’ of a new Urban Sciences Building (USB) to monitor and tweak performance and test future operational scenarios. The 12,500 sq m building is the centrepiece of a new development called the Helix, being built in the city centre, and won Project of the Year – Public Use at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards last month.
