Total Energy Management – a new approach to energy and sustainability management

Total Energy Management – a new approach to energy and sustainability management

In today’s disrupted world, an organization’s ability to grow its business while reducing its carbon footprint is key to sustainable competitiveness. This is why in September 2015, Siemens announced that it aimed to be the world's first major industrial company to achieve a net-zero carbon footprint by 2030. One way we aim to achieve this is by changing how we consume and buy energy, but also through increased use of on-site energy production – all supported by continuous data analyses. We call this Total Energy Management, and this is the same approach we follow to help clients around the world reduce their energy and operating costs plus their carbon footprint.

Comprehensive energy management can accelerate the pace of investment in a clean energy future.

Consume energy sparingly

Up to 50% of buildings' energy is wasted

Dedicated efficiency measures, analytics, and services can help you ensure that your infrastructure consumes only the energy that it absolutely needs. Energy efficiency positively impacts your ability to manage operating budgets and reduces total carbon emissions while often extending equipment life.


At Siemens, we leverage the know-how from our global network of data scientists and building efficiency experts along with the experience of over 7,500 efficiency projects that have turned buildings into high-performing assets operating more economically and sustainably.

  • Improve transparency
  • Optimize infrastructure
  • Consider green certification

Buy energy more efficiently

Energy represents roughly 30% of typical operating costs

Managing your energy spend should start with ensuring that your energy procurement strategy is effective. Further measures should focus on reducing the overall complexity of managing your energy spend, mitigating risks from volatility, ensuring utility bill accuracy and considering your response to dynamic tariff structures.

At Siemens, we leverage supplier relationships forged over 35 years, across a procurement portfolio of 15,000 locations with an overall annual spend in excess of US$15 billion.
