Keynote: “The Manifesto – 2 years in”


Two years ago, IES issued its “Manifesto for Saving the Planet” which looked at the challenges facing the planet and humankind as the population continues to grow and our consumption pattens continue to increase. The Manifesto was tied to a pivot point at IES toward a suite of digital twin simulation environments called “Intelligent Communities Lifecycle (ICL)” which aims to have a positive energy impact on every building on the planet in all phases of the buildings lifecycle. Two years later, this talk provided an update on the manifesto as it stands today, why its themes are more pressing than ever and how building sector stakeholders and grid operators are levering digital twin technologies for the design and operation of the built environment in an integrated way.
