UAE MoEI launches big data ecosystem and digital twin platform at WGS

by Madaline Dunn

The Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI) has launched the Big Data Ecosystem for the Energy and Infrastructure Sectors and the Digital Twin Platform for the Energy and Infrastructure sectors. 

Launched in cooperation with stakeholders from the government and private sectors, the two initiatives were announced by His Excellency Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, at a press conference held at the WGS this week. 

There, MoEI signed a number of MoUs with different entities to support these initiatives.

It was shared that the big data ecosystem and platform aim to analyse and leverage big data and digital technologies to improve strategic decision-making and sustainable development in energy and infrastructure.

The Big Data ecosystem aims to link integrated data with partners to:

  • Promote the transition to more sustainable energy systems through data analysis, 
  • Provide the best proactive services, 
  • Reduce the duration of service provision, increase customer happiness, and
  • Enable informed decision-making. 

It also leverages artificial intelligence, simulation, and predictive smart analytics to shape the future of energy and infrastructure, while also building capabilities and developing human resources.

Meanwhile, the Twin Digital Platform displays live data on the livability and sustainability of cities on 3D models, including statistics about energy and water consumption, carbon footprint, traffic, demographic diversity, services, air quality, and waste with the aim of supporting decision-making and the implementation of targeted initiatives. 

Further, it provides a set of proactive models related to protecting infrastructure assets, improving traffic to reduce accidents and congestion, mitigating the effects of climate change, shaping future and predictive maintenance plans, and achieving climate neutrality.

The platform aims to strengthen the resilience of infrastructure to natural hazards and extreme weather events, support decision-making for developmental projects and initiatives based on current situation analyses and scenarios, enhance the efficiency of water and energy management, and improve waste management.

The Minister pointed out that the platform supports the acceleration of the transition to renewables by improving the efficiency and performance of renewable energy resources, driving the transition towards employing hydrogen technologies as an energy source, and supporting the provision of integrated infrastructure for the public EV charging network and increasing sales of EVs.
