The general objective of this project is to set up an interdisciplinary team to establish the scientific and technical foundations for the design and development of a digital energy twin for the province of Quebec. The specific objectives of the project are to 1) identify the main components of the digital energy twin and the potential spatio-temporal analyses by considering the available datasets, 2) identify functionalities enabling the analysis of interactions between different multi-source energy layers with a focus on the circularity of energy sources and 3) design scenario capabilities for the allocation of locally produced energy to local consumers in order to optimize energy consumption and enable circularity in the field.
