Perhaps, but I don' think they are mutually exclusive - it's not an either/or question. The Digital Twin for construction will rely on the goals and KPIs for the construction team and might incorporate budgeting, scheduling. material and project-based information. Operations (defined as the operators of the grid - ADMS, etc.), on the other hand, might require higher fidelity data for a given asset as it pertains to how this asset will behave in the grid model. Ultimately there is one universal underlying Digital Twin definition with specific personals only concerned with various Digital Twin that are subsets of the universal one. I envision a Venn diagram in our future!

Do you see differences in the digital twin for construction versus operations?
This question was posed during a recent Energy Central PowerSession: Can Integrating Design, Construction and Grid Data Make a Digital Twin a Reality?
The PowerSession was so lively and packed with great information that the panelists were not able to address all the questions live, so we thought we would bring the question into the community. By posting the question in the community, anyone can follow the Q&A and or even participate.
