University of Birmingham

The University of Birmingham partners with Siemens to create the smartest university campus in the world

The University of Birmingham, in partnership with Siemens, is combining digital sensor and analytic technologies, artificial intelligence, decentralised energy generation and storage, renewable energy and concepts that help change users’ behaviour to transform the University’s Edgbaston and Dubai campuses into the world’s smartest global campus, creating a ‘Living Lab’ where research, teaching and learning all benefit from access to new data and connectivity. 

A campus that delivers the maximum in every respect

Outstanding efficiency, perfect adaptability and responsiveness to user requirements, superior sustainability, first-rate safety and security, excellent profitability: Our digital strategy, systems integration capabilities, and technology make such intelligent campuses take shape.


Everything a smart mixed-use campus requires

With a comprehensive range of products, solutions, and services we enable the integrated control and management of the complete energy, building, safety and security, and e-mobility infrastructure of a campus – throughout the entire lifecycle.

Planning, consulting, and simulation

Optimizing power system and building performance 

With up-to-date market and technology expertise and powerful simulation tools, our consultants support you in optimizing your power system and your buildings with regard to your individual technical and economic targets. Our services comprise strategic advice and grid design as well as control and automation concepts for both power and building infrastructures.

Power 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. 

Energy management

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

Energy storage solutions for any requirements

Energy storage solutions for industry, infrastructure, and private individuals: fast, flexible and reliable.


The brain of eMobility.

Considering the important role of eMobility within urban spaces like campuses, the infrastructure for electric mobility must satisfy the requirements of the grid, but also meet the needs of all the people operating in a modern mixed-use campus.

Grid connection and smart electrification


An effective, reliable, and safe power supply is the operational backbone of a campus. A smart electrification system covers everything from medium-voltage switchgear all the way to low-voltage switchboards and busbar trunking systems and makes use of smart software tools and applications.

Smart buildings

Increasing building performance, efficiency, and adaptability

We spend up to 90 percent of our lives in buildings, and we believe that everything people do in life deserves a perfect place to do it - smart buildings are an active contributor to the experience and success of its stakeholders.

Safety and security

Comprehensive protection for people and assets

Security is one of the most important enablers for the way we live and do business in a globalized world. Digitalization impacts all industries and is a powerful catalyst and enabler of change. The global security landscape and their demands are changing, protection through advanced security management and services, means safeguarding the basis of sustained competitiveness and business continuity of our customers.


Analyzing and utilizing what buildings can share

Every system and component within the buildings of a smart campus creates numerous data that can be collected, analyzed, and used to gain actionable insights. Building Twin, the application of digital twins of buildings to provide relevant data across the building lifecycle, and BIM, a collaborative process that is the core for the digitalization of the construction industry, help create safe, efficient buildings that continuously interact, learn, and adapt to new requirements.

IoT infrastructure

Industrial production sites

Industrial production sites, with their specific critical infrastructures, are facing many complex operational challenges. The right use of resources for in-house procedures is crucial to optimize processes for staff and assets and to ensure the highest level of production efficiency. Our Campus Control Center can help to tackle these challenges.


Making investments easy

Campuses by their very nature have a difficult challenge of housing, catering and employing thousands of people at a time. Many are looking to smart technology to help them run more efficiently, reduce costs and better serve their inhabitants. Smart and flexible financing solutions are a key enabler to stay ahead of the curve.
