Twinning for Decarbonising Transport – TransiT – is a UK research hub established in 2023 dedicated to digital twinning for transport decarbonisation.

With the backing of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the hub is scoping potential digital capabilities to manage the reduction of carbon emissions from transport, which currently accounts for a third of emissions across the country.

Consultation status: completed

To enable us to build an effective digital twin transport hub, for quick and easy adoption at scale, we have been gathering input from stakeholders across the country.

Representatives from across these sectors have assisted us in the consultation:

  • Passenger and freight transport – road, rail, maritime, aviation
  • Retail
  • Operations
  • Policy and government
  • Charities and third sector
  • Data
  • Cybersecurity
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Telecommunications
  • Energy
