  • UtilityTwin

    (Third Party Funds Group – Overall project)
    Term: September 1, 2021 - August 31, 2024
    Funding source: Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wirtschaft, Landesentwicklung und Energie (StMWi) (seit 2018)

    In the UtilityTwin research project, an intelligent digital twin for any energy or water supply network is to be researched and developed on the basis of adaptive high-resolution sensor data (down to the sub-second range) and machine learning techniques. Overall, the technology concepts BigData and AI are to be combined in an innovative way in this research project in order to make positive contributions to the implementation of the energy transition and to counteract climate change.
