Virtual Testing

This service allows you to investigate a number of ‘what if’ scenarios, with a high degree of certainty, before any money is spent or costly retrofit measures are implemented. Build a strong business case for any improvements being considered and set performance expectations to ensure they deliver once in place.

By creating a real-time operational digital twin of your building, IES can virtually test different improvement scenarios and refurbishment strategies, delivering a strategic review of the options. You can have confidence in the results because of the deep level of calibration we undertake, using actual operational data, physics-based simulations, machine learning and AI.

The review can be tailored to cover the information most important to you; including predicted cost and energy savings, CO2 emission reductions, impact on key KPIs, ROI and payback periods, implications to internal comfort conditions, plus opportunities for replication across a portfolio, if needed.

This service also allows you to facilitate and track implementation of the final chosen solution through digital commissioning and other evaluation methods. Utilising the digital twin again to accurately measure and verify performance against expected outcomes. Identifying problem areas and allowing you to fix them early, as well as supply lessons learnt guidance for future projects.
