Navigating the Net Zero Carbon Pathway with Digital Twins
Jason Whittall, Director, ONE Creative environments (ONE)

The Speakers will demonstrate how Digital Twins can transform educational facilities towards net-zero carbon emissions and show the practical implementation of Digital Twin for educational estate through a case study. The case study will illustrate the integration of Building Information Models (BIM) with the Internet of Things (IoT) and will demonstrate how digital twin implementation can support the journey to net-zero carbon. They'll explain the basics of digital twins, smart buildings, and the benefits of linking 3D assets to data and how to link YOUR 3D assets to YOUR data. The presentation will highlight how real-time data can enhance building performance, manage energy, and optimise space utilisation, demonstrating practical applications for reducing carbon footprints effectively.
