New Mexico is launching a new ‘smart infrastructure’ and carbon-neutral energy era on a grand scale, after its 2019 Energy Transition Act (ETA) positioned the US state as a global leader to fight Climate Change.

Its ambition will be enabled by partnership between The Agile Fractal Grid (AFG), developing a new integrated power and broadband network, and Cityzenith, creator of the revolutionary Digital Twin platform SmartWorldPro.

The World Of Digital Twins – Cityzenith – The world’s most advanced digital twin software solution

Digital Twins are virtual replicas of buildings, infrastructure and physical assets, fully interconnected with the data in and around them that optimize project performance, and help predict and visualize future outcomes. Delivering value across multiple functional areas like maintenance, energy consumption, space utilization and traffic management, Cityzenith’s Digital Twin platform, SmartWorldPro, aggregates and analyzes information needed to design, build, and run projects at any scale.

The state and these partners predict the multi-billion-dollar project will transform life and the economy in New Mexico (pop. 2.35m, GDP $104bn) and ripple outwards as other energy operators, states and nations see the benefits: 1,000s of new businesses, 100,000s of new jobs, better and faster data links, higher infrastructure efficiency, and up to six new smart cities.

The 5th largest US state’s fossil fuel power will also be replaced by a cleaner ‘smart’ energy network, featuring North America’s biggest solar and wind array, and generating ample surplus for trading on energy markets.

Those living there will experience ‘smart’ IT benefits in entertainment and hospitality venues, retail, transport hubs, health and hospitals, security, telecoms, power utilities, employment, and manufacturing.

Key to all this potential is Cityzenith’s SmartWorldPro, a breakthrough software able to unify all planning data and diverse software. It speeds hi-res 3D Digital Twin modelling of the replacement infrastructure towards efficient design before construction, and streamlines ongoing operation and development of the new assets.

Cityzenith’s CEO Michael Jansen said: “It’s the kind of visionary project SmartWorldPro was designed for and we are already modelling New Mexico’s biggest city, Albuquerque (915,000) before rolling out across the state over a 10-year program.

“SmartWorldPro can integrate with AFG’s futuristic portfolio of AI, smart building, and other technologies towards a ‘Smart Connected Community’ for cities, large venues, and even whole states.”

AFG CEO John Reynolds said: “The project is a highly efficient deployment of services for 21st century public, commercial, and industrial needs.  

“But individuals will also be impressed by Living-as-a-Service™, the emerging bundled entertainment, ticketing, hospitality, housing, transportation, food and beverage, wellness, and utilities platform.  

“And Cityzenith’s SmartWorldPro means we can show and deliver this data-rich ‘smart lifestyle’ to everyone in New Mexico – urban and rural. Longer-term, this sustainable power, comms, and lifestyle ‘reset’ could span North America, and national 10GB broadband maybe just 10 years away.

Michael Jansen added: “It’s easy to see the benefits for New Mexico, but this cutting-edge technology can go global, pushing back against urban pollution and Climate Change and trillions in economic and environmental damage.

“Cities occupy less than 2% of the Earth’s surface, yet consume 78% of global energy and pump out 60+% per cent of greenhouse gas emissions* while 100 megacities like New York, Seoul, Hong Kong and Shanghai produce a shocking 18% of those emissions.

“So, partnership with fellow visionaries at AFG also fits our long-term ‘Clean Cities – Clean Future’ mission.”

This follows the recent media coverage across the US where Cityzenith has pledged its SmartWorldPro technology to the worlds most polluted cities
