Cities jump ahead in the race to net zero using digital twin and simulation technologies

SIRADEL provides innovative solutions that leverage digital twins and advanced simulation capabilities, to support cities and regions in designing implementation-ready and efficient climate action plans.

In the urgent race to address climate change, cities are developing and implementing climate action strategies to reduce GHG emissions and combat risks such as extreme heat and flooding. To support these initiatives, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is providing local governments with funding through the Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) program, with the goal of updating and implementing regional Climate Action Plans (CAPs) that will ultimately reduce GHG emissions and increase climate resilience.

In order to develop and implement impactful CAPs, cities need a clear picture of their current situation and a vision of what the future might look like to better prioritize actions according to their carbon emissions reduction and climate resilience objectives.

Digital twin and simulation technologies can be applied to climate action planning – and this is exactly what SIRADEL provides to cities across the United States. With a three-step methodology, SIRADEL produces and leverages digital twins to help cities:

1) Assess the current situation and better understand local greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, air quality, and more.
2) Prioritize strategies by simulating climate action scenarios and analyzing their impacts on KPIs.
3) Monitor progress and communicate key CAP initiatives with stakeholders through user- friendly web and mobile applications.
