Workshop: Digital Twins for Rapid Decarbonisation of Buildings


In this virtual workshop we’ll be sharing with you our lessons learned from a world-leading case study example, before inviting you to share your views on the current status of digital twin technology for the sector, challenges encountered and what comes next.

Discover how the University of Glasgow has implemented cutting-edge Digital Twin technology across its campus on both new and existing buildings, through the UK Research & Innovation eDigit2Life project. We’ll demonstrate how the project is developing and trialling a digital twin to inform and improve operational performance to cut carbon across an entire campus.
