Research report: Digital twins for cities

Researchers say 70% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050, and while urban areas occupy only 3% of the Earth’s land, they account for approximately 60-80% of all energy consumption and 75% of carbon emissions. Rapid urbanization also exerts pressure on power and water supplies, wastewater treatment capabilities, transportation systems and more, leaving leaders looking for ways to transform the way cities and urban spaces are built and managed. 

By fusing advanced information and communication technology solutions with AI and other innovations, cities can create digital twins to enable more informed decision-making.
