Buildings of Tomorrow podcast - Smart Cities

In this week's episode we are talking about Smart Cities. James Ehrlich, Founder of ReGen Villages, a Stanford University spin-off company, gives an overview of the future of living in regenerative and resilient communities

Smart infrastructure for city campuses

Cities can greatly benefit from attractive city campuses that shape the lives of people and communities, the success of businesses, and the health of the world around the campus with the help of smart infrastructure. The digital, agile, and flexible city campus of tomorrow manages costs, support the efficient use of all resources, and easily adapts to changing demands, in this way remaining attractive for residents and businesses in the long term. We are offering a fully integrated, bespoke end-to-end solution that combines renewable and intelligent energy supply and energy efficiency, smart buildings, and e-mobility charging to create more caring, integrated urban environments that understand and manage changing conditions, support the people who use them, and make lives better.

Shaping the future of city life

Smart city campuses tackle many of the the challenges that cities face today. Our digital strategy and technology help cities to establish livable quarters that respond to user requirements and remain attractive for the years to come.

Distributed energy systems with technology from Siemens make the energy supply of a  smart city campus more economical, resilient, and sustainable

Energy generation

Distributed energy systems create extra value

In the wake of the ongoing decentralization of the energy system, more and more campuses are using local energy solutions to produce the electricity they need. But there’s even more in it: With the help of distributed energy systems, campuses gain more independence from energy suppliers and establish a highly sustainable, cost-efficient, and remarkably more resilient power supply. It even becomes possible for campuses to actively participate in the energy market, as any generated surplus can be fed into the power grid and sold to the market – an attractive opportunity to create additional revenue.

Power distribution

Microgrids for cost-effective, sustainable, reliable power

Microgrids contain all the elements of complex energy systems, they maintain the balance between generation and consumption, and they can operate on and/or off grid. More and more campus operators are using microgrids to produce the electricity they need cost-effectively, sustainably, and reliably.

Energy storage as a contribution to a sustainable energy system pay off particularly well in the context of a smart city campus.
