Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019

4 - 7 July 2019                                        Delighted to once again be a technology partner for the Festival of Speed   
Creating environments that care

Clean, green & digital technology

Unprecedented technology transitions are driving change, not just in motorsport, but transportation, grids, energy systems, buildings, infrastructure and industry. More of us are living in cities and we can’t escape the ever-rising pressure on the environment, forcing all of us to act now. With our work in transportation, grids, energy systems, buildings, infrastructure and industry, Siemens is helping to ease that pressure. As a Technology Partner at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019, we will showcase examples of ingenuity – ingenuity that will help power the future of transport, infrastructure and industry, to help us become cleaner, greener and electric.
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!

Our Technology Showcase 2019

The 'Clean' Hydrogen Fuel Cell

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.

Go Green with EV Technology

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!

 

The BULL-e

 

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

 

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.

Digital Enterprise @ Future Lab

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.

A New World of Mobility Takes Shape

If climate change is to be significantly mitigated, the world will need to rethink its transportation systems. We’ll need self-driving cars, electric drive systems, digitally connected vehicles, and carsharing. However, the old order has not exactly hit a dead end. Electric cars are still the exception, self-driving vehicles are still in the testing stage, and the shared use of automobiles has not yet become a mass phenomenon.

How your life will change when the future car hits the road

The transformational impact the future car will have on our lives is realized by the 3 fundamental pillars below working in conjunction: affordability, experience and adaptability. With hands and minds free from the wheel we will seek to be occupied and come to expect an experience that is customized to our desires.

The Future Car chain: It’s a car, it’s a bus, it’s a train, and it runs on your personalized route and schedule

What if you could have a high-speed train that picks you up at your home and drops you exactly at your destination, on your schedule?  In the future, cost effective autonomous intercity highway driving may become economical in part by electronically linking individual autonomous pods into a high-speed chain that could travel on highways at train-like speeds of over 150 miles per hour.

Cold Dead Hands: Relinquishing Your Right to Drive to the Future Car

As the future of mobility becomes a reality human drivers will relinquish the driver’s seat to the robot driver.  Private ownership of cars will be significantly reduced and eventually eliminated as the alternative, autonomous mobility service, will be more convenient and affordable. As a result, human-driven cars will be relegated to tracks or stadiums, much like horses are today.
