the first global industrial company to commit to carbon neutrality by 2030.
This commitment is not contingent on international treaties or regulations; it
is based on the understanding that we have a responsibility to protect our
planet. From 2014 to 2020, Siemens has been able to minimize the carbon
footprint of its own value chain by more than half (54%), thereby exceeding its
original goal of halving its global carbon-dioxide emissions by 2020.
- Digital Industries and Smart Infrastructure delivered sharply higher earnings compared to prior-year quarter
- Significant growth in China
- Detailed business figures for first quarter of fiscal 2021 to follow on February 3, 2021
Following a significantly better-than-expected business
performance, the preliminary operating results for Siemens’ businesses for the first quarter of
fiscal 2021 have exceeded market expectations. Driven by a strong improvement
in the automation business and software business of Digital Industries and
higher-than-expected growth in China, the operating results were substantially
higher year-over-year (yoy).
range up to 1,000 V and scalable charging power up to 300 kW

- Automated allocation and shifting of charging power
Smart Infrastructure released its new public fast charger Sicharge D for the IEC markets. It is suited
for highway and urban fast charging stations, city parking as well as shopping
malls and provides one of highest peak efficiencies on the market at 96 percent,
scalable charging power and dynamic power sharing.
- Monte Rosa Hut in Swiss Alps modernized with new battery storage solution
- Solar power ensures sustainable, efficient energy supply
- 8.6 tons of lead batteries replaced with 2.7 tons of lithium batteries
The “Bergkristall” (Mountain Crystal), a mountain hut situated at an altitude of 2,883 meters in the Monte Rosa Massif of the Valais Alps, has been largely energy self-sufficient since 2010. Along with thermal solar collectors, a photovoltaic system integrated in the hut’s southern facade ensures a high degree of energy self-sufficiency and a reliable energy supply. Since 2010, all of the building’s performance data, such as solar energy generated and battery capacity, have been bundled in Siemens Navigator, the cloud-based building performance platform.
- Largest service order for Siemens Mobility from Deutsche Bahn
- IS 600 revision for 40 ICE 4 trains
Deutsche Bahn (DB) has awarded Siemens Mobility a contract for the revision of 40 trains of the series 412 ICE 4. This is the largest service order ever awarded to Siemens Mobility by Deutsche Bahn. The contract also includes an option for the revision of 50 additional series 412 trains. IS 600 revisions are required for new high-speed trains operated by Deutsche Bahn when they have reached a mileage of 1.65 million kilometers. The work will be carried out beginning in mid-2021 in the “Expert House” service area of the Siemens Mobility Test and Validation Center in Wegberg-Wildenrath, in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
The ICE 4 will be the backbone of the Deutsche Bahn's future long-distance network. In May 2011, the German national railway company concluded a framework agreement with Siemens Mobility for up to 300 trainsets. At this time the largest train contract that Siemens has ever won in its nearly 170 years of corporate history.
The ICE 4 sets new standards in intercity traffic. A unique train concept has been developed, that means it can be individually adapted to the requirements of various transport tasks. The modular drive concept is based on independent Powercars with identical traction technology, resulting in more flexibility than ever before. High operational availability is guaranteed by a large number of reliable systems with high redundancy.
All in all, DB will be receiving 1,511 cars with which it can configure 50 12-car, 50 13-car and 37 7-car trainsets. DB will keep two end cars in reserve. The 12-car and 13-car trainsets will be operated in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The shorter 7-car trains are planned for use in Germany and Austria.
In addition, Deutsche Bahn has awarded Siemens Mobility a contract for the revision of 40 ICE 4 trains.
