In an era of consumer-oriented production and economic uncertainty, industrial companies are constantly facing new challenges. We're integrating cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, Edge and Cloud computing, and Industrial 5G into the Digital Enterprise. This is how we're enabling the intelligence that’s required for the production of customized products. On Wednesday, March 4, the CEOs of Digital Industries presented technological innovations as well as current product highlights. They showed numerous specific examples to demonstrate how companies need to think and act in ecosystems in order to implement Industrie 4.0. We also demonstrated how we’re combining the latest technologies with our domain expertise to make our solutions for the digital transformation more and more market-specific.
At "SPS – Smart Production Solutions" 2019, Siemens will present sector-specific applications and future technologies for the digital transformation of the discrete and process industries. At the heart of the 4000 square meter booth will be new products, solutions and services from the Digital Enterprise portfolio, which can be used to merge the real and virtual world.
On November 26, the first day of SPS, Klaus Helmrich spoke at the Siemens press conference, which took place in the trade show Convention Center. Mr Helmrich discussed the latest trends in digitalization and the next stage of digital transformation in the discrete and process industries.
At this year’s European Utility Week (EUW) in Paris, Siemens Smart Infrastructure will demonstrate how it is driving energy intelligence across supply and demand. By helping shape the energy ecosystem across buildings, industry and the grid, Siemens is supporting government, cities and businesses with their sustainability goals. The company will focus on four topics that support the energy transition: sustainable grids, smart distribution, the Internet of Energy and grid edge.
By 2035, more than 50 percent of electricity is expected to be generated by renewables. In parallel, electricity consumption is forecast to double by 2050. Megatrends such as increasing urbanization and climate change are driving the need for electrification and decarbonization. Meanwhile, new applications in software and digitalization are making grids smarter and more efficient, creating new business models.
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.
On the first day of the Hannover Messe, April 1, Klaus Helmrich welcomed you to the annual Siemens Press Conference. As member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, Klaus Helmrich is responsible for the Digital Industries Operating Company. The Press Conference took place at 6:30 PM in the Trade Fair's Convention Center, Room 1 A/B.
Mr. Helmrich talked about the latest developments of digitalization and the next step towards the digital transformation in the manufacturing and process industries under the theme "Digital Enterprise – Thinking industry further!".
At ISH, the leading international trade show for building, energy and air conditioning technology and renewable energy sources that took place in March 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany, Siemens did exhibit its current portfolio of products, systems and solutions for energy-efficient rooms and buildings as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technology.
The digital transformation of the producing industry is gaining momentum. Companies from a wide variety of industries are already unlocking this potential – they are using end-to-end digitalization to create a lasting competitive edge by reducing time to market and increasing flexibility, efficiency, and quality. With Siemens Digital Enterprise solutions the technical prerequisites for the implementation of Industrie 4.0 are available and can be deployed in every application and companies of all sizes. At the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Germany, from November 27 to 29, 2018 – which took place this year under the motto "Digital Enterprise – Implement now" – Siemens showed in hall 11 how this can be done.
CIGRE 2018 took place at Paris from August 25th until 31st. Digitalization provides the key to success in the increasingly distributed energy landscape. Siemens experts explained how to make these changing energy systems even more safe and efficient. Digitalization enables predictive planning and new business models beyond just the provision of grid capacity.
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.
