Watch the opening keynote

Recap of EUW 2019 in Paris!

For energy-intelligent societies.

Creating environments that care.

Together with our customers and partners we drive the transition to sustainable, low-carbon, resource-efficient societies. Jointly we create an ecosystem that intuitively responds to the needs of people, supports sustainable development and helps our customers to capitalize on the multitude of opportunities and to better use resources.


At this year's EUW we talked how we are combining the strengths of Siemens in Electrification, Automation and Digitalization and enable customized solutions for municipalities, transmission and distribution system operators, generation companies and large energy consumers.


We help to find your optimized mix of conventional and renewable energy sources with efficient generation, further electrification, intelligent power grids, adaptive storage systems, innovative resilience and agile demand and supply shaping.


Together we make the world a more connected and caring place – see you next time!

The grid edge revolution - Innovative drivers towards net-zero energy

We show how innovations at the grid edge are helping to drive one of the most radical transitions in human history – a move from a centralized energy system to one that is more decentralized, more local and more efficient. Towards an energy system that is more democratic and where individuals have more control. An energy system that meets the needs of the global population, but that also benefits the planet.

Our highlights at the EUW 2019

Topic highlights

Sustainable grids

The call for environmental protection is shifting the use of energy from fossil sources towards renewable energy sources, especially wind and solar. Our portfolio – from integration of renewable energy sources supported by battery and hydrogen storage solutions to environmentally friendly products, solutions, and systems – helps our customers to get a future-proof energy supply on track.

Smart distribution

Distribution power grids need to handle increasing distributed in-feed of renewable energy, fluctuating peak times, and many more.  We are helping to prepare your grids for the challenges of the transition to a new energy mix. Ranging from a ring main unit on medium-voltage side, a distribution transformer with sensor connectivity, innovative low-voltage components and a comprehensive basket of distribution grid applications for condition monitoring and automation such as self-optimizing grid solution.

Internet of Energy

We are connecting automated energy systems to the Internet of Energy ensuring full data transparency for maximum efficiency, reliability and grid safety. At the heart: the electrical digital twin, a perfect virtual image of the physical grid leading to increased efficiency in network planning and operation. We jointly co-create with our customers innovative digital applications - powered by MindSphere with the clear aim of turning data into business value.

Grid edge

Our solutions empower our customers to integrate renewables efficiently, to set up microgrids with different degrees of autonomy; including storage solutions of all sizes. We also provide eMobility charging infrastructure, from charging stations to flexible software solutions, as well as products and solutions for smart buildings and their integration into the overall grid or distributed energy systems. In short: intelligent energy meets smart buildings, and that interface has a name: the grid edge.
