World Green Building Week (21 – 25 September 2020) is the World Green Building Council’s annual campaign that empowers us all to deliver greener buildings.

This year, they’re asking every one of us to #ActOnClimate:

“We’re calling on the building sector, policymakers and governments to take urgent action to deliver net zero buildings. We’re also calling on them to provide a showcase for those leaders already taking action to show where, why and how they are achieving it.”

That’s exactly what we’re doing with our free live World Green Building Week educational session on Tuesday, 22nd September, from 11am-12pm BST. 

Join us as we look at the trend towards digitisation of the built environment and how it also holds the key for the industry to truly #ActOnClimate. Bringing to life how Digital Twins have practically been applied in Limerick to create not just a net-zero carbon block, but one that produces more energy than it actually consumes.

AI, physics-enabled simulation, machine learning, and operational building data can be a powerful technology combination. The session will introduce all these individual elements and demonstrate how they can be used to produce a life-time digital asset, that delivers results. A single digital platform for decarbonisation, that works alongside existing performance simulation tools and techniques, but which is fully scalable from a building, to a campus, to a city. 

Over five days, the World Green Building Council network of Green Building Councils and partners will showcase examples of global industry leadership. Its aim is to deliver a coordinated, collective voice of the industry to demonstrate the existing leadership in the net zero building movement, and call for bolder and more ambitious regulation to unlock these solutions.

IES is proud to be one of these leaders, providing a real, tangible solution to how we decarbonise the built environment. Find out more about how our technology can be deployed as part of a Complete Net-Zero Process, or contact the IES team today.

And don’t forget to sign up to our free World Green Building Week webinar. We look forward to welcoming you!
