Building X: Becoming industry’s most open digital platform for buildings
will also present Building X and its cloud-native applications: Energy Manager,
Security Manager and Operations Manager. These applications have been
designed to support high-performance, safe and sustainable buildings in various
environments, including production and manufacturing sites and commercial
buildings. Building X is built on Siemens Xcelerator design principles as a
modular, fully cloud-based, open smart-building platform. It features artificial-intelligence-enabled
applications, strong connectivity and built-in cybersecurity.
Customers can use Building X as a software-as-a-service (SaaS)
application, on a subscription basis, or opt for an end-to-end offering of building services. With Building X, Siemens aims to create the industry’s most
open digital platform for buildings – a platform that enables customers to
benefit from enhanced built environments and services in order to make intelligent decisions about
their buildings, assets and workforce.
“The digitalization of buildings, grids and electrification
infrastructure is key to driving a smarter, more efficient and decarbonized
industrial sector,” said Matthias Rebellius, member of the Managing Board of
Siemens AG and CEO of Smart Infrastructure. “At Hannover Messe, we are
demonstrating how the combination of software from our Siemens Xcelerator
portfolio and hardware enables our customers to improve the performance of
commercial buildings and industrial facilities, lower costs and reduce
environmental impact to futureproof their businesses.”
Siemens will also reveal its newest switchgear innovation for primary
distribution networks using industry-leading vacuum-interrupter technology and Clean
Air as an insulating medium with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 1.
As a result, this solution is climate friendly and completely free of
fluorinated gases. For key functionalities, this switchgear has integrated
sensors that can be connected to software from the Siemens Xcelerator
Partner Country for Hannover Messe is Indonesia. As the economically strongest
country in Southeast Asia, Indonesia has been an important market for Siemens
for more than 165 years. In the Partner Country’s Pavilion in Hall 2, Siemens
will be showing exhibits this year from the areas of industry, infrastructure,
transportation and energy.
