Ingenuity Tour – On Road to Industry 4.0
Our multicity road show is on its way to enable your journey towards digitalization.
For inclusive, sustainable development
More and more Indians are feeling the benefits of a country going through widespread modernization. Rapid change is never easy, however, and daily struggles with limited transportation options and a lack of access to amenities can make us lose sight of the remarkable progress of the last few decades.
India is home to the largest number of people who have recently escaped poverty. The accelerating pace of this progress is helping to drive world economic growth. What matters most now is to keep that momentum going on the road to sustainable, inclusive prosperity.
The modernization of infrastructure is key to the quality of life for citizens who live in and near India's major cities. A reliable electricity supply not only helps create jobs and improve living conditions, but offers knock-on benefits for education, healthcare, the environment and much more.
When state-of-the-art technologies provide sustainable growth that benefits everyone – that’s Ingenuity for life.
Seize the opportunities todayLower costs, improved quality, flexibility and efficiency, and shorter time to market. Worldwide, companies across sectors, regardless of size, are already experiencing the benefits of digital transformation and are well on their way toward Industry 4.0
Companies in the manufacturing segment are increasing the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies. These companies have either started implementing or are considering digitalization and associated solutions along their value chains driven by proven improvements in quality, flexibility, efficiency and time to market.
The manufacturing industry in India has gone through various phases of development over time and is well-positioned to increase its contribution to the country’s GDP in the coming years. With the potential to grow over three-fold by 2025 – up to $1trillion – India’s manufacturers have a golden opportunity to emerge from the shadow of the service sector and join the global league of manufacturing giants, creating as many as 90 million jobs in the process.
As the world moves towards Industry 4.0, India must move with it – by turning to smart technology that can maximize quality, productivity, speed and efficiency, and gain a vital competitive edge in cost and innovation. Relevant investments are needed in skills and technology development, as well as R&D facilities to develop the local market. Manufacturers have already begun their journey toward digitalization by putting in place building blocks, which starts with developing a long-term vision for the organization leading into the Future of Manufacturing.
As a technology provider with a portfolio of end-to-end solutions spanning across Industry Software, to Integrated Engineering and Automation Solutions and to Digital Services, Siemens is a partner of choice for manufacturing companies in their journey toward digitalization.
Whether it’s residential and office buildings in New Delhi, technology complexes in Bangalore, or transport systems in Mumbai – the modern world depends on a safe, clean and efficient energy supply.
Today, about one in five Indians lacks access to the power grid. But by 2040, the IEA predicts, India can expect some 600 million new electricity consumers as well as over 300 million new urban citizens. To support economic growth, the energy sector will have to match rising demand with significant investment – especially in efficient, low-carbon technologies.
Coal currently accounts for around 70% of India’s power generation and will continue to play a vital role in the future. At the same time, however, the Indian government has ambitious plans to integrate renewable energy sources and reduce the country’s reliance on fossil fuels. This makes alternative business models and innovative technologies essential for the transition to a new energy landscape.
It all begins with efficient energy production. Wind turbines on land and at sea, as well as turbines that convert energy from gas or coal into electricity – all must function at the highest possible degree of efficiency.
Delivering power requires low-loss and secure transmission and distribution systems. Intelligent networks will reliably integrate decentralized and fluctuating renewable energy supplies into the grid. Decentralized power plants and storage solutions will be connected together, creating virtual power plants that help stabilize the power grid. Finally, state-of-the-art control technology will boost the flexibility of power stations.
The lowest-priced energy is energy that is not needed. Therefore, energy-efficient technologies are key to reducing energy consumption in areas like buildings, production and transportation.
Optimising infrastructureWith daunting rates of urbanisation, India’s cities are under pressure. Urban infrastructure needs rapid expansion and improvement. Advanced sensors and control systems offer an efficiency upgrade that can help traffic to flow, cut energy use and make cities attractive places to live and do business in.
The basis for a better quality of life
Infrastructure is the backbone of cities, providing mobility, energy, water, security and quality of life. Prosperous cities are vital for India’s development, but they must be able to spread their prosperity to surrounding areas – with viable transportation options, for example.
About 10 million people a year move from the countryside to India’s cities in search of opportunity. After decades of underinvestment, local and national governments now recognise the urgency of upgrading infrastructure to support both current and future expectations.
Intelligent technologies are a fast and efficient way to optimise existing infrastructure. Based on advanced software and automation, intelligent infrastructure ensures the efficient and reliable delivery of essential services. Building management solutions increase security and comfort, while also optimising energy production and consumption in buildings.
Smart, integrated mobility systems ensure high capacity utilization and availability – at lower costs. What's more, people benefit from greater convenience, safety and punctuality. With innovative financing solutions, Siemens can help India’s cities unlock their potential.
