Geo for Earth - Episode 8: What is the role of digital twins in the transition towards a low carbon economy?

Posted on: 18/10/2022

What is a digital twin? And how are they helping the energy infrastructure? Join our guests for Episode 8 to explore the topic in more detail.

As we shift towards more weather-dependent renewable energy sources, the increased frequency of extreme weather events may have a negative impact on UK energy infrastructure. In this episode, we seek to understand the implications of this extreme weather, and explore the role that geospatial data, and in particular digital twins, play in developing a greener, and more resilient energy infrastructure.
