Do you enjoy tinkering with software and like to think complex programming puzzles into simple steps or processes? That’s exactly what you will be doing in this Challengership for the sustainability sector. In fact, you will delve into “digital twins” in this Challengership. These are virtual copies of real life situations, to which you can do all sorts of calculations.

More about digital twins

Imagine an energy supplier wanting to open a new power plant. What are the implications for power grid load, Co2 emissions and infrastructure? These are questions you prefer to answer before you have built an entire power plant. By virtually mimicking this situation, you can digitally simulate what is happening in advance and thus propose the most efficient and sustainable solution. So with a digital twin, you simulate real-life places or situations, to which you then apply all kinds of calculations. And you are going to conceive and build it!

You will do this for the organization PwC: one of the largest consulting firms advising and assisting organizations on ESG: Environmental, Social & Governance. You will work in a mixed team of developers and a digital twin expert, with whom you will recreate all kinds of situations digitally, to arrive at the most sustainable solution.
