How much could digital twins be effective in the content of carbon neutrality, as well as energy consumption reduction, in homes sector?

As it is evident, due to climate change and global warming, as well as energy shortage, there is a crucial need for energy consumption reduction and carbon contamination reduction in households as a major part of these events. One of the novel solutions for managing these problems is digital twins for better management in the construction and also maintenance processes of homes. I want to know:
Firstly, how much could this method be effective in this situation?
Secondly, what are the mechanisms and methods for this system?
Best regards,
Hossein Pouresmaeil.

Maybe with an algorythm, similar to those of social networks, including control of what you see and hear, effectivness can be accurate, but not quite ethical. I believe more in participatory design.

Digital twins could be highly effective in the context of carbon neutrality and energy consumption reduction in the home sector. By leveraging the power of data, digital twins can provide an accurate picture of energy consumption and allow homeowners to take proactive steps to reduce their energy consumption and emissions. For example, digital twins can create detailed energy models of individual homes, track energy usage in real-time, and provide insights into how different energy-saving measures can impact energy consumption and emissions. Additionally, digital twins can also help homeowners optimize their energy usage by providing personalized recommendations and alerts. Ultimately, digital twins can be used to empower homeowners to make better decisions about their energy consumption and reduce their carbon footprint.

Can artificial intelligence help optimize remote communication and information flow in a corporation, in a large company characterized by a multi-level, complex organizational structure?
Are there any examples of artificial intelligence applications in this area of large company operations?
In large corporations characterized by a complex, multi-level organizational structure, the flow of information can be difficult. New ICT and Industry 4.0 information technologies are proving to be helpful in this regard, improving the efficiency of the flow of information flowing between departments and divisions in the corporation. One of the Industry 4.0 technologies that has recently found various new applications is artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence technology is finding many new applications in recent years. The implementation of artificial intelligence, machine learning and other Industry 4.0 technologies into various business fields of companies, enterprises and financial institutions is associated with the increase in digitization and automation of processes carried out in business entities. For several decades, in order to refine and improve the flow of information in a corporation characterized by a complex organizational structure, integrated information systems are being implemented that informationally connect applications and programs operating within specific departments, divisions, plants, etc. in a large enterprise, company, corporation. Nowadays, a technology that can help optimize remote communication and information flow in a corporation is artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence can help optimize information flow and data transfer within a corporation's intranet.
Besides, the technologies of Industry 4.0, including artificial intelligence, can help improve the cyber security techniques of data transfer, including that carried out in email communications.
In view of the above, I address the following question to the esteemed community of researchers and scientists:
Can artificial intelligence help optimize remote communication and information flow in a corporation, in a large company characterized by a multi-level, complex organizational structure?

Is it time we shift emphasis from technological solutions to climate change & focus on the 'Human Dimension'?

Isn't the obvious solution and the elephant-in-the-room 'BETTER HUMAN BEINGS'? Shouldn't the focus be on better human beings rather than better technology? Why is it that everyone wants to develop better technology rather than focus on better humanity? Because no one has the answers and no one wants to change themselves? In environmental degradation, is it not obvious that nature can heal itself, if only left alone, and it is we humans who need regulation? Many natural parks managers do just that; seal off the area from human interference to let nature heal and recover. It is classified as 'Strict Nature Reserve"by IUCN. Complacency and inaction are not advocated here, as many have misunderstood, but the shifting of focus from technology to the human being. As technology is no match for human greed, isn't introspection & restraining ourselves more relevant than developing more technology, which caused the mess in the first place, by making it easy for a few to consume more? Since technology is only a short term quick fix which fails after a short time, isn't the real problem our addiction to material consumption & our lack of understanding about human nature? Isn't developing more technology sustaining the addiction instead of correcting it, leading to more complex problems later on, needing more complex technological quick fixes like higher drug dosages, more ground troops & equipment, (along with their debilitating side effects) in the future? Isn't this the vicious addiction circle we are trapped in? As researchers, do we merely buy more time with technology OR go to the very root of the problem, the human being?
A lot of hue and cry is made about climate change and the environment in general. Public and private money is poured into research to study its effects on the environment, sustainability etc. Should we study nature or ourselves?
" Our studies must begin with our selves and not with the heavens. "-Ouspensky
Human activities have been found to have a direct correlation to climate change and its impact on the environment(I=P x A x T, the Ehrlich and Holdren equation), in spite of what some complacent sections say to protect their own self interests.
We hardly know about Human nature. We can scarcely predict human behavior. We need to find out why we think like we do and why we do what we do and why, in spite of all knowledge and wisdom, consume more than what we need, in the form of addictions to consumption and imbalance not only ourselves but also the family, society and environment around us..
Humanity is directly responsible for all the unnatural imbalances occurring on the planet. Yet we refuse to take responsibility and instead focus on climate change, or fool the public exchequer with a 'breakthrough in renewable energy just around the corner'. We scarcely know what drives human beings. If we had known, all the imbalances around us would have had solutions by now, given the amount of money plowed into finding such solutions. Are we blindly groping in the dark of climate change because we don't know the answers to our own nature?
Is it not high time we focus on what makes us human, correct our consumptive behavior and leave nature to take care of climate change? Why focus effort on 'externals' when the problem is 'internal'- 'me'?
Aren't we addicts denying our addiction and blaming everything else but ourselves?
" We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make the world." - Buddha 
IMHO, We don't need to save the World. It is enough if we save ourselves from ourselves. The need of the hour is not vain glorious interventions, but self-restraint and self-correction!
The Mind is the Final frontier.
