Climate Resilience Demonstrator, CReDo, is a climate change adaptation digital twin demonstrator project to improve resilience across infrastructure networks
CReDo will develop a digital twin across energy, water and telecoms networks to improve climate resilience across infrastructure.
Who's involved ?
CreDo is being delivered through a collaboration with Connected Places Catapult, industry partners and research centres (Universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Exeter, Manchester and Warwick along with the Science and Technology Facilities Council, the Alan Turing Institute and the Joint Centre of Excellence in Environmental Intelligence). The project has been funded by BEIS, the Connected Places Catapult and the University of Cambridge.
Collaborating on CReDo are Anglian Water, BT and UK Power Networks who will use their asset data on a secure, shared basis to inform an increased level of infrastructure resilience. These data sets are being shared to create a digital twin of the infrastructure system for energy, water and telecoms.
By bringing the data sets together, the teams can examine the quality of the data and work with the IMF team as they develop the IMF thin-slice methodology. This will enable CReDo to further the achievement of two objectives: 1) the development of the IMF thin-slice methodology for connecting data sets and digital twins in a principled scalable way, and 2) to demonstrate how connected digital twins can help tackle climate change as the insights generated from the data can be used in the future to inform decision making concerning capital and operational planning and real-time operations reducing the cost and disruptive impact of extreme weather events.
