Digital Twins - Building a More Resilient Future

At IES, we believe Digital Twins are the key to decarbonising the built environment. Fully scalable from a single building to an entire city, our ICL technology goes beyond BIM to create a live Digital Twin which responds and behaves like its real world counterpart. Delivering the data-driven information needed to uncover significant energy, carbon, capital and operational savings. While taking account of resource use, transport, social and economic factors.

The ICL Digital Twin

Our unique combination makes real-time performance optimisation of built environment assets a reality. We integrate physics based simulation with the 3D model, real-time operational data, Machine Learning and AI.

Vision 2045 Film

In a bid to decarbonise the built environment, IES digital twin technology is helping iconic buildings meet their zero carbon targets. Find out more in this Vision 2045 film which features interviews with experts from IES, Glasgow University, SSE Energy Solutions and NTU Singapore.

Digital Twins for All Built Environments

Whether it's an individual building or multiple buildings across a campus, city or portfolio, our digital twin technology can be used to map your route to a zero-carbon future.

Universities

Local Authorities

Corporate Real Estate

Healthcare

Single Platform for Decarbonisation

Whether the goal is to create an energy and water efficient masterplan, to meet zero-carbon and healthy building targets, or to ensure your buildings operate as efficiently and comfortably as possible, our ICL Digital Twin tools can make it happen. All while maximizing the potential of renewables, community energy schemes and demand response. With collaborative tools to engage and inspire every step of the way.

iSCAN

Optimal Building Operation

A single platform to tackle energy hungry buildings. iSCAN allows you to centralise any time-series data from different building and energy management systems, utility portals, IoT sensors and historic files in one platform. Organise and analyse this data to gain intelligent insights to improve building or portfolio operation and uncover hidden savings. Make sense of your building data and meet zero carbon targets.

iVN

Community Energy & Renewables

A network modelling and management tool that delivers a holistic view of your site. Integrate Electricity, Heating, Cooling and Waste Heat networks and share energy across buildings. Decarbonising and improving the overall efficiency of your site, while saving you money. Assess existing supply and demand from buildings and other community assets, determine the flexibility required across a network to balance demand, and evaluate ‘what if’ scenarios for intelligent operation.
