Some 34 cities use city digital twin software from ClimateView to predict emissions and estimate the impact of policy adjustments.
A Swedish-based company has raised $ 12 million to develop a digital twin platform to predict urban carbon emissions.
ClimateView funding comes from CommerzVentures, financial services company CommerzBank Venture Capital arm and also Nordic Ninja, 2050, Norrsken and Gingles.
Named ClimateOS, the digital twin platform enables governments, city planners and enterprises to model the impact of special policies. The information can be adapted to the impact of certain remedial measures and used to provide visual forecasts for the coming year.
When the software is used in conjunction with data collected from industry, energy, transportation and agricultural sensors, the software helps to build a realistic image of carbon emissions reduction efforts.
ClimateView plans to use the investment to increase socio-economic costs and benefits in the city model and to help design policies for cities’ financial viability and behavior.
ClimateOS is under an open information dashboard that outlines the objectives of urban transition in accordance with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
The interface is color-coded panels designed for transportation, industry, agriculture, energy and other sources of carbon dioxide emissions.
You can find 79 special actions on the dashboard to evaluate how organizations can compensate and control emissions based on the accounting model.
For example, the steel and steel manufacturing industry has three functions: product electrification, the replacement of coal with biofuels, and the introduction of hydrogen into the production process.
ClimateOS in Helsingborg, Sweden
The Swedish city of Helsingborg aims to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2035, 10 years before Sweden’s national policy.
Transportation is Helsenburg’s largest carbon donor and a major challenge for public planners.
In recent years, clean transportation initiatives introduced in Helsingborg include a self-driving electric truck project at Sweden’s second largest container port, which aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
