Interview C. Makropoulos - Giving Digital Twins the IMPETUS to become regional
Resilience Management & Governance
“The phrase ‘Digital Twins’ has become common in the water industry to describe creating virtual replicas of physical assets, such as water treatment plants or water networks. However, another potential lies in ‘digital twinning’ an entire region, initially connecting ‘hard’ ground sensors and ‘soft’ satellite sensors to regional environmental and infrastructure models. This could help eventually connect multiple utility digital twin models to help with long-term water decision making.
That’s according to Christos Makropoulos, a professor at the National Technical University of Athens and a principal scientist at KWR, both organisations that are partners in the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project IMPETUS.”
