Siemens is rigorously executing its announced €2 billion investment strategy. Of this amount, the company plans to invest around €1 billion in Germany, thereby boosting the country’s innovative strength.
As the energy sector
races to meet the deadlines of the Paris Agreement, Europe is currently facing
an energy crisis: possible gas shortages, enormous energy costs and the
challenge of keeping the grids stable even in uncertain times.
Grid operators everywhere are looking for the best strategic approach to
speeding up their energy transition towards sustainability while at the
same time ensuring stability. But where – and how – to start?
There is no time to
waste: The increasing complexity of managing electrical grids needs fast
and sustainable answers, from planning through operations to
maintenance. The key to managing this intricacy is the convergence of
operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT). By embracing
this new way of solving grid issues, power utilities are
able to turn complexity into competitive advantage – easy, fast and
Infrastructure is leading the change. To get a glimpse of the involved
technologies, and partners, visit us on ENLIT 2022 in Frankfurt, starting Nov
29th until Dec 1st.
As every year there
will be keynote speeches, HUB sessions, product presentations, and most
importantly: think tanks to enable participation when it comes to tackling the
most pressing energy issues.
Almost 10 billion
people will live on our planet by 2050, most of them in urban areas. About 40
percent of all energy used globally is consumed in buildings, and another one
third by industries. But resources are finite.
Resilient, adaptive, and efficient infrastructure, enabled by digitalization,
is key to sustainability. Taking action to tackle climate change and other
global sustainability issues is an urgency. With buildings and electrification
increasingly growing together and becoming more and more digitalized, they can
support the sustainable infrastructure transition and create more livable
At the Light +
Building 2022 trade fair, Siemens will showcase its vision of digitalization as
the key pillar of the infrastructure transition. Our motto at the show is
“Smart infrastructure is sustainable infrastructure”, outlining our innovations
that will make this possible.
Visit us at Light + Building 2022 in Frankfurt am
Main, October 2 - 6, in hall 11.0, B56.
warming, energy dependency and rising costs are among the most urgent problems
of our time. Hydrogen can play a key role in Germany’s energy future. The
community of Wunsiedel in Upper Franconia is showing how that is possible. In
Wunsiedel, one of Germany’s largest green hydrogen generation plants has now
been commissioned with the help of Siemens technology.
Siemens AG has
launched an open digital business platform, Siemens Xcelerator, to accelerate
digital transformation and value creation for customers of all sizes in
industry, buildings, grids and mobility. The business platform makes digital
transformation easier, faster and scalable.
Challenges and opportunities in the energy systems require a new smart, more adaptable grid infrastructure. Today, power grid operation is a complex task: Volatile power generation and multi-directional power flows from distributed, increasingly renewable sources and prosumers call for a smarter approach. With digital solutions that connect the physical and digital worlds we integrate intelligence across the energy value chain in systems and operations. We help connect grids, buildings, and industries enhancing efficiency and sustainability. We shape grids that are reliable and resilient, that integrate and manage renewables and that operate increasingly autonomous. These responsive grids support the sustainable energy transition, help provide affordable energy to society and our customers to stay competitive in an ever changing world. During Europe´s largest energy related trade show Enlit, which took place in Milan, Italy, Siemens presented its technological solutions to these challenges.
Cities account for roughly 80 percent of the energy consumed worldwide and generate roughly 75 percent of all carbon emissions. With more than two-thirds of the world’s population predicted to live in urban areas by 2050, cities are coming under increasing pressure. Digitally connected smart cities can help overcome some of the most pressing challenges of our time, including clean water, adequate waste removal as well as reduced pollution caused by buildings. The Expo 2020 Dubai site, with infrastructure connected by Siemens digital technology, provides a blueprint for smart cities globally. As the Premier Partner for Infrastructure Digitalization at Expo 2020 Dubai, Siemens has digitally linked more than 130 buildings at a purpose-built site twice the size of Monaco.
Shifting freight transport to rail has its limitations. Therefore, a share of this transport will need to be carried out by trucks that combine reliable service with minimum environmental impact. The eHighway system is twice as efficient as conventional internal combustion engines. This Siemens Mobility innovation supplies trucks with power from an overhead contact line. This reduces local air pollution and contributes significantly to the decarbonization of the transport sector.
Fluorine gas-free energy distribution for medium-voltage applications
Fluorine gas-free switchgear is a hot topic in the energy sector because this new approach contributes to sustainable power distribution. On this page you will find all information about the sustainable switchgear portfolio from Siemens.
