Sustainability. Now is the time.
Take advantage of the opportunities the energy transition gives you on a local level – just like we have at our top R&D facility and living lab in Princeton, New Jersey, USA. Let’s talk microgrids!
Putting you in control of the energy transition. Small scale. Big impact.Take a sustainable approach to energy that goes beyond the use of renewable sources. Microgrids serve as a decentralized energy system, where you are independent of the public network and, at the same time, can generate additional revenue by feeding any excess energy back to it. You are in control – by balancing load demands through intelligent management, and with integrated back-up systems you have peace of mind with failsafe operation. Get the most out of your microgrid, with our full portfolio of cutting-edge products, solutions, and services.

The energy transition is making an impact across all industries – including the mining industry. Get the details from our special white paper
An all-round intelligent solution.
You provide the space, and we support you in setting up the system. You can choose a campus or create an entire island for your microgrid solution – it is adaptable to virtually any local requirement and can withstand even harsh environments.
The energy source can be sustainable – photovoltaic, wind, hydro, or biomass – and the supply backed up through biodiesel generators, emergency power units, and storage systems. With Siemens software, you control the operation based on your energy demand at any time. This saves energy each day and money over the long term.
Shaping a smart energy world at the grid edge – exploring opportunities for municipalities and DSOs
In this paper, we present 5 hands-on use cases which illustrate how current technologies help to integrate new players and assets to improve the core business of municipalities and DSOs and allow them to tap into innovative business models.
When you control your energy, you control your future.
BLUE LAKE RANCHERIA
The Native American tribe at Blue Lake Rancheria in California, USA, relies on a customized microgrid solution to seamlessly distribute and control their self-generated power. This means they are ready for any cases of severe weather, natural disasters, or power blackouts in the future.
Pursuing economic strength, and enhancing student success.
With the co-generation microgrid solution, Algonquin College in Eastern Ontario, Canada, has the flexibility it needs to take advantage of more renewables and new opportunities as the future of energy evolves. And it serves as a great learning tool for its energy management students.
One for all and all for one.We work with you to design and deliver a comprehensive microgrid solution that meets your requirements perfectly. Start small and expand your system as your needs change. Show your commitment to sustainability – not only by using green power but also by feeding it back into the grid. That is good for the environment and good for your wallet. The process is simple: First, we create an energy twin as a simulation of your entire microgrid project to give you a clear overview. Once the scope and design of your microgrid is clear, we determine the right controller. Then you can meet your energy management challenges head-on with near real-time performance data.
