“My current role includes exploring opportunities to use Ocado’s technologies to disrupt other sectors,” commented Paul Clarke. “Origami is perfectly placed to lead the digital transformation of the energy industry, and I’m excited to join Origami’s advisory board at this time.”

Paul is also working with Centre for Digital Built Britain and others to develop a national digital twin; a virtual representation of the real-world environment. Using digital twins de-risks large projects and helps businesses understand how changes in process, technology, and business models can quickly expose new risks and opportunities.

“We look forward to working with Paul to explore the huge opportunities available in using digital twins in the energy industry,” added Bance.
