Adding energy-system functionality to a digital twin

We expanded the Digital Urban Climate Twin (DUCT) of the ETH Zurich to enable the real-time simulation of district cooling systems. We also integrated modules from the City Energy Analyst, a tool for analyzing urban energy systems, into the DUCT. This enhancement will help cities and municipalities when it comes to planning carbon-neutral sites and buildings. Cities, municipalities, property owners, and private enterprises all stand to benefit from our consulting services on the tool’s application.

Our services

  • Development of algorithms for the real-time simulation of thermal networks and storage systems
  • Backend and frontend software development
  • Setting-up of databases and automated unit-tests
  • Provision of training services for planning carbon-neutral sites and buildings
  • Provision of consulting services on the tool’s application in the planning of carbon-neutral buildings and real-estate portfolios
