University of Cambridge Decarbonisation Network


The "Data for the Public Good" report published by the National Infrastructure Commission in 2017 highlighted the case for new technologies offering the potential for significant productivity gains. In particular, the report emphasised the potential benefits that could be derived from connected digital twins operating on shared data. This panel session will ask how can digital twins be used to save CO2 in the manufacturing industries? What is currently happening and where are we heading? What are the data needs and where are the bottlenecks? How can we do more and where do the panel see the research needs?
