Local Energy Systems

The dynamics of energy are changing, creating new opportunities for businesses, organisations and communities everywhere. Local and onsite energy systems can help you reduce energy costs, carbon emissions and turn your energy into a competitive advantage.

Be energy intelligent

  At Siemens, we’re here to help you create your intelligent local energy system - whether that’s enhancing energy efficiency, generating your own energy supply, or embracing renewable energy to reduce your energy costs and secure energy sustainability.

It starts by helping you find better ways to define, manage and forecast your energy needs, then providing the infrastructure, expertise, technologies and finance solutions you need to support your energy strategy.

But whatever your needs, Siemens will work with you to create the intelligent solution you need to take full advantage. It’s what we call being energy intelligent.


Distributed Energy Systems report

Up to now the basic energy system in the UK has remained unchanged, with large scale centralised plants supplying power. A shift is underway with demand for energy ever increasing, energy costs rising and the cost of local generation through CHP and renewables and storage becoming ever more viable. The UK now needs to meet this challenge of rising demand while maintaining affordability, reliability and environmental sustainability.    Siemens have worked with ARUP on a research project into Distributed Energy Systems to explore the areas which could most benefit from these solutions and how they could be implemented.
