Creating environments that care.

When intelligent energy and smart buildings interact, the world around us can adapt and respond intuitively.

Smart infrastructure from Siemens makes the world a more connected and caring place – where resources are valued, where impact on the world is considered, where sustainable energy is delivered reliably and efficiently. It provides the flexible infrastructure to allow society to evolve and respond to changing conditions. Technology and the ingenuity of people come together to be at one with our environments and to care for our world. We do this from the macro to the micro level, from physical products, components and systems to connected, cloud-based digital offerings and services. Siemens offers a broad portfolio of grid control and automation; low- and medium-voltage power distribution, switching and control; and building automation, fire safety and security, HVAC control and energy solutions.

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.

The heat that keeps the world a little cooler

The decarbonization of our energy supply can only be achieved if our buildings are heated and cooled more sustainably. Ochsner Wärmepumpen GmbH produces the technology required for this. The SME has asserted itself to date with innovative heating and cooling solutions in a competitive market – thanks in part to a smart control unit that was developed in cooperation with Siemens.

The art of protecting artwork

Paintings, sculptures, and furniture are perishable objects. The Bauhaus Museum in Dessau, Germany, which celebrated its opening in 2019, is an example of how technology can be used to effectively protect cultural treasures in a modern building and preserve them for posterity. Siemens technology is making a significant contribution.

The backbone of a smart building

Smart buildings have many advantages. But what technologies are behind them? And considering the rapid pace of developments these days, how can one ensure that a building doesn’t become technologically obsolete but can keep adapting to new requirements in the future? The decisive factor is how to plan and handle a building’s data with an eye to future needs. The concept of the Building Twin is the key to meeting these needs.

A matter of trust

In recent months, millions of people all over the world have been forced to stay at home in order to curb the spread of COVID-19. The economy is now slowly getting up and running again in many regions. However, the virus has changed our view of the world. Public places, buildings, and stores have become suspect. How safe can we feel at the office or while shopping anymore? Companies are facing the question of how to rebuild customer trust in their infrastructure, in their buildings. Technology can help.
