Singapore-based Envision Digital, provider of AIoT software leader, and Mott MacDonald, a global engineering, management and development consultancy, have agreed to jointly develop net zero carbon solutions for energy, transport and infrastructure sectors.
The two companies will bring together Envision Digital's strengths in digitalisation and AIoT, with Mott MacDonald's infrastructure transformation expertise, to help cities, industrial clusters, transport operators and other customers achieve their net zero goals faster and more effectively.
"To overcome the challenges of decarbonising the global economy, digitally enabling infrastructure is essential to make assets smarter, greener and more efficient. Our common vision and technology capabilities will accelerate city infrastructures needed for the new net zero grid,” said Michael Ding, global executive director of Envision.
Mike Haigh, executive chair of Mott MacDonald, believes their latest partnership is a perfect fit as it enables the company to collaborate in new areas to create innovative solutions to achieve net zero.
“Envision Digital's capabilities in AIoT and digitalisation aligns with our vision of the role digital twins can play in rising to the challenge set by the statements made at COP26."
Envision Digital and Mott MacDonald are already working together to assist Sunderland City Council and South Tyneside Council to facilitate the electrical infrastructure to support Nissan and Envision AESC's multi million pound investment in electric vehicle production and a new Gigafactory in Sunderland, UK at the International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP).
IAMP is a hub for sustainable high value manufacturing and the project involves creation of one of the largest industrial microgrids in the UK, including proposals for on-site renewables and storage, facilitating the provision of 100% renewable electricity.
As countries, cities and companies declare their net zero target aligned with the Paris Agreement, net zero carbon and infrastructure transformation has become a quintessential part of governments and enterprises' Environment, Social, Governance (ESG) strategy. The strategic partnership between Envision Digital and Mott MacDonald will provide comprehensive sustainability offerings to help drive organisations' net zero infrastructure transformation worldwide.
