Smart infrastructure for campuses

The campus of tomorrow is digital, agile, and flexible. It uses smart infrastructure to shape the lives of people and communities, the success of businesses, and the health of the world around it. It manages costs and uses resources efficiently. It is adaptable to changing demands. It makes life and work easier and helps to create more caring environments. Across cities, mixed-use sites, and universities, we are combining renewable and intelligent energy supply and energy efficiency, smart buildings, and e-mobility charging solutions. We’re providing holistic and bespoke end-to-end solutions with a clear focus on achieving maximum outcomes with cutting-edge technology, in this way enabling the creation of integrated environments that understand and manage changing conditions, support the people who use them, and make lives better.

Campuses that optimally serve their purpose simply cause visualization

We are harnessing technology as well as our expertise and experience in managing complex porjects to create healthy, responsible, and livable environments for people to live, work, and learn that understand and manage changing conditions, support the people who use them, and make lives better.

Creating more caring environments

Whether urban districts, educational establishments, or mixed use: Smart campuses create healthy, enjoyable, and sustainable places to live, work, and study. Discover how Siemens helps design, establish, and operate smart campuses.

New White Paper: Driving the Energy Revolution

Grid edge technologies are an essential tool in the transformation of global energy – facilitating the adoption of renewables, turning consumers to prosumers, and mitigating climate change. Many factors influence which solutions are appropriate for a region, or how ready they are to deploy them at scale. This white paper defines a powerful index to assess the relative need and readiness for grid edge solutions, so that barriers and opportunities can be identified and so that the grid edge revolution can be accelerated.

Portfolio

Enhanced building performance, low-carbon energy, trendsetting mobility

Our consistent portfolio of smart infrastructure solutions leverages efficient synergies – in this way making it possible to create integrated and cost-efficient smart campuses that are open to innovation and support sustainability.

Planning, consulting and simulation

Optimizing power system and building performance 

With up-to-date market and technology expertise and powerful simulation tools, our consultants support you in optimizing your power system and your buildings with regard to your individual technical and economic targets. Our services comprise strategic advice and grid design as well as control and automation concepts for both power and building infrastructures.

Energy generation

Distributed energy systems create extra value

In the wake of the ongoing decentralization of the energy system, more and more campuses are using local energy solutions to produce the electricity they need. But there’s even more in it: With the help of distributed energy systems, campuses gain more independence from energy suppliers and establish a highly sustainable, cost-efficient, and remarkably more resilient power supply. It even becomes possible for campuses to actively participate in the energy market, as any generated surplus can be fed into the power grid and sold to the market – an attractive opportunity to create additional revenue. 

Power distribution

Microgrids for cost-effective, sustainable, reliable power

Microgrids contain all the elements of complex energy systems, they maintain the balance between generation and consumption, and they can operate on and/or off grid. More and more campus operators are using microgrids to produce the electricity they need cost-effectively, sustainably, and reliably.

Energy storage

Energy storage solutions for any requirements

Energy storage solutions for industry, infrastructure, and private individuals: fast, flexible and reliable.

eMobility

The brain of eMobility.

Considering the important role of eMobility within urban spaces like campuses, the infrastructure for electric mobility must satisfy the requirements of the grid, but also meet the needs of all the people operating in a modern campus.

Water management

Making the most of every drop

Clean water is one of the most important resources for campuses. The consistent, end-to-end digitalization of all water and wastewater processes within the scope of a smart campus makes it possible to provide and treat the valuable resource in an efficient, economical, and sustainable manner and, at the same time, ensure the utmost security of supply.

Building technologies

Increasing building performance, efficiency, and adaptability

We spend up to 90 percent of our lives in buildings, and we believe that everything people do in life deserves a perfect place to do it - smart buildings are an active contributor to the experience and success of its stakeholders.

Safety and security

Comprehensive protection for people and assets

Security is one of the most important enablers for the way we live and do business in a globalized world. Digitalization impacts all industries and is a powerful catalyst and enabler of change. The global security landscape and their demands are changing, protection through advanced security management and services, means safeguarding the basis of sustained competitiveness and business continuity of our customers.

Services

Analyzing and utilizing what buildings can share

Every system and component within the buildings of a smart campus creates numerous data that can be collected, analyzed, and used to gain actionable insights. Building Twin, the application of digital twins of buildings to provide relevant data across the building lifecycle, and BIM, a collaborative process that is the core for the digitalization of the construction industry, help create safe, efficient buildings that continuously interact, learn, and adapt to new requirements.

Campus control center

IoT solutions for campuses

Campus is an autonomous living and learning hub within a modern metropolitan city – that generates huge volumes of data. Processed in a smart way, this data can be used to optimize campus life. Next generation Campus Control Centers increase convenience, security and well-being – while saving time and, e.g., energy resources. Proactive decision making and fast response is enabled by valuable insights – provided right on time.

Financing

Making investments easy

Campuses by their very nature have a difficult challenge of housing, catering and employing thousands of people at a time. Many are looking to smart technology to help them run more efficiently, reduce costs and better serve their inhabitants. Smart and flexible financing solutions are a key enabler to stay ahead of the curve.
