Digitalising infrastructure to fight climate change

A webinar discussion exploring the new opportunities digital technology is providing across energy & the built environment in the race to net zero.

Webinar date: February 15, 2022, 10 AM CET

Duration: 60 min

Language: English


Without the digitalisation of infrastructure we won’t realign society behind a 1.5 degree world.


In fact, infrastructure plays a pivotal role in the race to decarbonise the world around us. Buildings are responsible for 39% of global CO2 emissions. The majority of energy systems still run on fossil fuels. And transportation accounts for about 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions.


To support the net zero target, all these infrastructure services have to become much more sustainable – enabled by digital technologies which are widely available.


In this one-hour discussion join leaders from across energy, buildings and mobility as we explore the three major infrastructure areas in the race to net zero.

Key areas of discussion 

• Delivering infrastructure transformation: Adaptable by design, enabled by digitalisation, powered by clean energy

• Harnessing the power of data: The importance of measurement and analysis to deliver net zero infrastructure

• Powering cross-industry collaboration: The role of different sectors in infrastructure decarbonisation


Cover of A New Space Race Thought Leadership Report

Discover fresh perspectives on the future of infrastructure!

A New Space Race is a Siemens thought leadership study about how infrastructure stakeholders view the immediate and longer-term future of our built environment and energy systems.


It is based on a survey of 501 senior infrastructure stakeholders from 10 countries as well as in-depth interviews and desk research.


The research covered commercial real estate (e.g. office towers, campuses, hospitals, data centers, or factories), public sector assets (e.g. community centers, transport hubs, education assets, or healthcare infrastructure), and energy assets (e.g. electricity grids, gas networks, wind farms, etc). Respondents were involved as infrastructure as owners, developers, or operators.
