Based on electrical power systems, leveraging renewable energy generation technology, and information technology, the energy Internet fuses power grids, natural gas networks, heat/cold supply networks, electric transportation networks, etc. into an interconnected energy sharing network. The energy Internet is an important technology for promoting renewable energy integration and improving energy efficiency. However, due to the complexity of multiple energy networks and the significant differences between them, the planning, operation, and control of the energy Internet presents several technical difficulties. Digital twins is an advanced simulation technology based on the Internet of things, communications, big data, and high performance computing that may provide effective solutions to the problems that the energy Internet is currently facing. In this paper, the concept of digital twins is firstly introduced, the construction and possible applications of digital twins to energy Internets are discussed, the problems that the energy Internet digital twin can solve are illustrated by taking the planning of energy Internets as an example, and a digital twin technology-based energy Internet planning platform — CloudIEPS—is introduced to further exemplify the role of the energy Internet digital twin through a concrete planning case.
