Matthias Rebellius, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Smart Infrastructure, will highlight and discuss the latest trends in the field of infrastructure and the integration of eMobility. Cedrik Neike, Member of the Management Board of Siemens AG and CEO Digital Industries, as well as other executives, will give you a closer look at the developments around all things mobility and what the future has in store.
Russian Railways (RZD) has ordered 13 high-speed Velaro RUS trains from Siemens Mobility and Ural Locomotives, a joint venture of the Sinara Group and Siemens AG. The order has a volume of around €1.1 billion. The contract also includes maintenance of the trains for a period of 30 years. RZD originally ordered eight Velaro trainsets from Siemens Mobility in 2006 and placed a follow-up order for an additional eight trains in 2011.
On the path to the future of energy, decarbonization, decentralization, and digitalization are inextricably linked. The goal, after all, is intelligent, sustainable generation, provision, and use of energy. This requires integrative thinking and an eye for the big picture – from intelligent energy concepts to sector coupling, electromobility, and the integration of renewable energies in the power grid. At The smarter E Europe trade show, Siemens demonstrated how this combination of power generation, storage, distribution, and use functions in practice. The event brought together four exhibitions under one roof covering the core topics for the energy world of the future (Intersolar, Power2Drive, ees, EM-Power). In line with the trade fair motto "Take control: Be energy intelligent!" we presented innovative products and solutions for the grid integration of PV power plants, local energy systems, and for e-mobility ecosystems.
The world's largest trade fair for transport technology – InnoTrans – was being held in Berlin from September 18 to 21. Once again, Siemens has showcased its products in Hall 4.2 and in the outdoor exhibition area.Digitalization is fundamentally transforming the mobility industry. It is improving the availability of vehicles and infrastructures, optimizing operations, and reducing efforts and costs. Reflecting these changes, digital innovations in a networked "Complete Mobility System" was the focus of Siemens' presentation at InnoTrans 2018. Following the motto "Shaping connected mobility," Siemens has showcased new, intelligent solutions that will make rail transport more efficient, safer and more reliable.
Leverage the full potential of renewable resources and local energy solutionsThe energy landscape is changing toward decentralization and independence from the traditional central power supply model – toward an increasingly distributed energy system. This change is characterized by an increase of efficient and affordable renewable power generation solutions – from small to utility scale – as well as combined heat and power (CHP) and storage technologies. The growing utilization of renewable energy sources, the deregulation of markets, and environmental awareness reinforce this shift. Siemens meets this trend by delivering a customer-specific offering such as solutions for local energy, photovoltaic and e-mobility infrastructure as well as low-voltage components.
Siemens has entered into an agreement to acquire Invensys Rail, the rail automation business of Invensys for approximately €2.2 billion (£1.742 billion). At the same time, the company plans to divest its baggage handling, postal and parcel sorting activities. Both planned transactions are part of the recently launched "Siemens 2014" company program, which amongst others, is aimed at strengthening the company's core activities.
