Be energy intelligent!

Take control of your energy supply and get the most of new possibilities

Industries, commercial areas, large buildings, municipalities, and communities are facing three main challenges: costs, security of supply and CO₂ reduction. With the help of local distributed energy solutions, it’s possible to turn these challenges into long-term calculable variables – across all businesses and industrial sectors.    The solutions can include targeted use of renewable energy, combined heating and power stations, or provision of storage solutions up to energy-as-a-service. This is an option in which an experienced partner deals with the nuts and bolts of the problem, from design through installation right up to operation, while you can focus on your core business.

Turn data into opportunities

The Energy Configurator evaluates optimization potential to significantly reduce your energy expenses, to minimize the ecological footprint, and to improve security of supply.

Challenges

Tackle your challenges

The transformation of the energy system is affecting energy providers and consumers at the same time. It not only holds significant optimization opportunities when combined with innovative technology, but even enables completely new business models.

The smart way to take control of your energy future

In the wake of energy system change – from a system of centralized large-scale power generation to an increasingly distributed, decarbonized, and digitally enabled landscape – significant new opportunities arise. Industrial plants, campuses, infrastructural facilities, buildings, urban districts, as well as municipalities can now play a new role in the energy system.

Optimizing energy spending

Optimizing energy costs becomes more and more important in order to increase competitiveness. There are several ways to achieve this goal: An optimized energy mix can help to lower purchase costs for energy. Reducing the overall energy consumption and increasing energy efficiency are also effective ways. 

With a local energy solution, it’s also possible to reduce grid fees and to create additional revenue by selling surplus energy to the energy market. 

Reliable energy supply

For virtually all industries and especially for critical infrastructures a reliable power supply is crucial. Local energy solutions help improving system reliability and availability of power, ensure power quality, and support the implementation of resilience. 

This enables you to safeguard your processes and become future-proof and scalable as well. 

Environmental awareness

Sustainability has grown to a real paradigm shift for many companies. Not only is it a means to improve the public perception and brand value, but also an effective way to reduce emissions and carbon footprint.

Thanks to available technologies such as waste heat recovery, forecasting, and measures for better allocation of available power it’s also possible to create significant energy and resource savings. 

Key technologies

Standardized and proven technology for highest flexibility

The optimal solution is different for every customer. In order to provide the best offering we combine modular and proven technology, which allows for faster project delivery and easier expandability and scalability. Additional performance guarantees like share of renewable energies or system reliability help to minimize risks and to add value.

Turnkey solutions for power, heat, and cold generation

Integration of multiple fossil and renewable technologies (diesel, photovoltaics, wind, combined cycle power plant) for energy generation.   

A leading player in power generation, Siemens offers one of the broadest portfolios of generation assets in the market, including gas turbines, combined heat and power (CHP), and renewables. We have extensive experience in developing CHP solutions. Combining a gas turbine and a steam turbine that recycles heat exhaust, efficiency is improved by as much as 90%, reducing fuel consumption and your carbon emissions.

 

Siemens renewable solutions deliver reliability along with sustainability. Our experts can specify, design, and install complete solar arrays or customize a wind solution using technology developed for mid-to-low wind sites. We configure new solutions to work with other renewables as well as legacy assets in a full, turnkey solution. 

Tailor-made solutions for electrical energy storage

Every remote hybrid power supply solution profits from an efficient and reliable electrical energy storage system. There are different storage solutions available that fit the needs of industries and communities at remote locations.

Modular energy storage systems make our on-site energy solutions that much more efficient. They provide one of the greatest assets of all – flexibility. You can accrue energy during low load periods and then release it during peak periods, balancing the energy equation in your favor, and adding cost savings.

 

All our solutions are designed based on your specific infrastructure and can be backed with a performance guarantee. Storage technology helps optimize the performance of all assets by stabilizing frequency and voltage. It can also be used to mitigate the intermittency of renewable assets, like wind and solar, storing energy when it is sunny or windy, and releasing it when it’s not.

Controlling self-sustainability and independent operation

Energy management systems ensure a reliable, optimized, and efficient control of power generation, consumption, and storage. Siemens software will make your distributed energy solution fit for the energy market.

Siemens automation controllers for energy generation assets and microgrids put self-sustainability and independent operation within reach. Our Spectrum Power™ management software helps you optimally manage all your generation resources and interact with the central grid.

 

Our automated control technology is the “glue” that brings your new and existing assets together into a single, operable microgrid. It provides a detailed view of all power assets so you can proactively manage generation and usage accordingly. During outages, you can easily island your operations from the grid. Siemens automation controls create a seamless grid that’s resilient and cyber secure. Even assets from different suppliers can be integrated.

Highlights

Distributed energy systems

The energy market is facing three main challenges: cost, security of supply, and CO₂ reduction. In recent years only a few energy companies had to find the answers to these challenges. Now, virtually every single market participant can decide on the best strategy for their own situation.
