How Digital Twin Technology Enhances Power Generation and Transmission

DUBLIN, July 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The “Advances in Digital Twin Technology Transforming the Energy Sector” report has been added to’s offering.



Renewable Energy and Digital Twin Technology: Enhancing Power Generation and Grid Resilience

To achieve global emission reduction targets, renewable energy must account for a substantial portion of energy consumption. By 2030, renewable energy should reach at least 42% of total consumption, increasing to 60% by 2050, compared to the 17% achieved in 2021. While the global power generation sector is transitioning towards renewable sources to curb greenhouse gas emissions, the intermittent nature of renewable energy poses challenges for conventional power plants and grid stability.

The increasing share of renewables has led to a decrease in the dependence and capacity utilization of conventional steam turbine and coal-fired power plants. This shift highlights the need for innovative solutions to address the intermittency of renewables and enhance grid stability. Digital twin technology emerges as a promising solution by improving the flexibility of conventional power generation, predicting renewable power generation, and enhancing grid resilience.

The concept of digital twin systems forms the foundation of this study. It delves into the working principles and fundamentals of digital twin technology, offering comprehensive insights into its applications across power generation, transmission, and distribution systems. The study identifies key growth opportunities, drivers, and challenges, as well as major innovations and research and development activities in the field of digital twin technology for the energy sector.

Numerous case studies are included to illustrate the advantages offered by digital twins in the energy sector. These case studies showcase real-world applications and demonstrate how digital twin technology can optimize power generation and enhance grid operations. Additionally, the study examines key stakeholders involved in developing innovative digital twin solutions for energy applications. It also provides an analysis of the global patent landscape, highlighting prominent patent owners/applicants and key research areas in digital twin technology for the energy sector.
