The Significance of Digital Twins in Utilities
A Digital Twin model of an existing physical asset can help utility companies enhance operational efficiency and offer ways to test assets and systems in order to predict and prepare for a wide range of scenarios.
Utilities have been market leaders in taking advantage of cutting-edge technologies to reduce the risk of vegetation encroachment, service disruptions, and wildfires. They have been utilizing Digital Twin technology to accurately model risk to their networks and other surrounding infrastructure. This is achieved by creating a highly accurate 3D model of the network and then combining that with other organizational data sets.
This groundbreaking technology enables businesses to run real-world scenarios, assess current and future risks, make better and faster decisions, and improve business processes.
