The TwinERGY project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. TwinERGY project targets to enable essential changes on how citizens and communities consume energy by empowering them to track their energy use and to proactively participate demand response programmes. The active engagement of consumers within local communities will allow them to participate in energy trading amongst them via local market schemes.
TwinERGY envisions to propose the Digital Twin intelligence for optimising demand response for residential buildings while having a positive impact on the well-being of consumers and on their ordinary activities. The Digital Twin technology relies on creating a digital copy of a physical asset, process or system. Connecting a physical asset with its Digital Twin enables testing new ideas or model scenarios in real time without interrupting the physical asset operations and users’ practices.
