Abstract

Digital Twin (DT) consists of a recent technology that can enable sustainability. However, Digital Twins are still in early stages of adoption, especially in households, and so the determinants to this adoption have not yet been determined. The aim of this study is to fill this research gap through providing a conceptual model of the drivers to the adoption of Digital Twins in households and it's relation to well-being. This study is developed as a mixed-methods research. The model is produced qualitatively, based on literature discoveries and key findings from interviews with experts and possible consumers. Afterwards, the model was validated with data collected through a questionnaire with 149 respondents. Results show that a set of informational, social, environmental and utility factors can influence the intention to adopt Digital Twins as a sustainable energy solution, and consequently the perceived well-being.
