This year we are championing ingenious technology that supports the way we want to live - happily, sustainably and in harmony. It mirrors the way we want industry and organisations to be – efficient, responsible and intelligent. For this, I am always inspired by the positive impact Siemens’ solutions can have on the world!Juergen Maier, CEO Siemens plc and Siemens Smart Infrastructure, UK
Anyone who has been to a festival or large outdoor event will be familiar with large, often diesel, generators that provide power. This year, Siemens will showcase a cleaner and greener alternative – the hydrogen fuel cell. This will power electric vehicle (EV) charging points in the First Glance Paddock but could be used to power the festival of the future!
Hydrogen (H2) is a non-toxic, clear gas that is the most abundant element in the universe – its only by-product is water. It does not create fumes, carbon dioxide or nitrous oxides which pollute the atmosphere. ‘Green’ hydrogen, such as the hydrogen in our fuel cell, is sourced by 100% renewable energy (from a wind farm or solar panel for example). By combusting hydrogen, it delivers heat, which used in the fuel cells, is converted electrochemically to electrical energy which then powers the cars.
Although our fuel cell will be charging EV cars at Goodwood, the future applications of this technology could be a substitute for natural gas by feeding hydrogen into existing pipelines, as fuel for fuel-cell vehicles or power plants, or as feedstock for the hydrogen processing industry. This not only opens the possibility to connect energy generation with the industry and mobility sectors but gives us the ability to deliver scalable and carbon-free energy.
Come and see the fuel cell in action at the First Glance Paddock and discover how hydrogen can be used to improve the environment and air-quality around us.
Energise your journey into a new era!
Our goal is to push electromobility further and make sure it becomes part of a smart and sustainable lifestyle to improve the environment for everyone.
From e-car charging to e-bus and fleet charging options, Siemens is driving cleaner, greener transport by using new and existing infrastructure.
This year, we will showcase a few examples of electronic transport and how our infrastructure is helping to power them, helping all of us get on the road to reducing pollution and becoming sustainable!
Our 1979 vintage Volkswagen Bull-E has a converted electric drive e-drive making it efficient and sustainable – perfect for clean, happy campers!
The eChopper – watch the first custom electric American Chopper drive round the infamous Hillclimb. Being an electric motorcycle, you may miss it without hearing the roar of an engine, but Siemens technology brings environmental sustainability and technology together to the iconic brand.
Car brands are entering a new era of motoring at unprecedented speed. We will show you how, with the seamless interplay of additive manufacturing (3D printing), flexible production concepts, the digital twin of an eCar, and innovative solutions for a transparent battery development, Siemens enables car manufacturers to increase flexibility and efficiency and reduce time to market.
Heard of additive manufacturing? Not really sure what it is?
Discover how it is quickly becoming the norm by opening up huge opportunities to revolutionise the manufacturing and repair of components. View some 3D printed parts made in our own Additive Manufacturing factory in Worcester and speak to our experts.
Battery Production and EV
Delve deeper into manufacturing process of electric vehicles by seeing battery production in action! Get up close to an EV charger and charge a mini electric car – this is how we will be charging our cars in the future so come and see how easy it is!
Create a digital twin of yourself with our digital twin mirror!
Digital twins are increasingly being used across a range of industries, including automotive. From performance testing to design and production, digital twins are helping to transform manufacturing.
