Insight Futures: Data for climate action

When it comes to climate solutions, are ‘supply’ and ‘demand’ sides communicating as well they could be?

Glasgow based Insight Futures have a new proposition; one that would enable benchmarking and learning around climate action. Their aim is to simplify and accelerate the work towards more sustainable cities and buildings.

TORCH Solutions Architect, Iain Henderson, had prior experience of building and running such a service in a different subject area, and so he helped map out the technical requirements alongside Insight Futures Founder and CEO, Doug Morwood.

The TORCH engagement also worked in parallel with The Data Lab to recruit a Masters student who, together with Iain, worked to specify a Microsoft Azure-based data platform suited to the requirement.

With assistance from Northbound Digital (from the TORCH Supplier Network), the Insight Platform is now in the final stages of testing.
