Each one-hour event is FREE of charge and features short talks from one or more speakers.  With Q&A and discussion sessions throughout, everyone is invited to be part of the conversation. We hold Twilight talks at 5-6pm, in the sweet spot between work and dinner – so join us to nourish the mind before replenishing the body!

SuSy.House App – Using Digital Twins of Homes to Tackle Retrofit

20% of our CO2 emissions come from our homes. If we’re going to address our net zero 2050 targets, we must address the emissions from the 80% of our homes that are lived in today.

The Green Register is pleased to welcome speakers from SuSy to talk about how they have developed digital twins of 18 million homes in the UK with more being added every day. They are using this data to streamline and enable domestic retrofit, working with local authorities and housing associations and domestic customers.

SuSy use this knowledge to streamline government retrofit schemes and educate and enable homeowners, connecting them with contractors, finance and other actors in the supply chain. In this talk CEO Bryan Charter and CTO Mauro Fazion Filho will take you through their user journey and interface and explain the workings behind their assessments.

The talk will describe technical details of the SuSy.House platform, in particular:

  • What is the “ Digital Twin” - DT;
  • How SuSy creates Digital Twins for any houses;
  • How retrofit projects are created, considering each specific house DT;
  • What is the householder journey through the Susy app:
    • Householder installs the app and builds the house Digital Twin - DT;
    • The app analyses the DT and recommends retrofits;
    • Householder requests an estimate/quote for a chosen retrofit;
    • Retrofit and house detailed specs are sent to the trade/installer;
    • …and services are carried on.

Bryan and Mauro will run through another application of SuSy: its ability to analyse houses as a
group of properties. The SuSy Insights platform creates general view mappings for property
identification, grouping the Digital Twin units to generate:

  • SuSy heat maps (for a region/area/town);
  • Maps and lists of similar houses with similar retrofit needs/issues;
  • House grouping for green action, connecting them to trade/installers and service
  • providers.
