The MindSphere Innovation Network (MINe)
The MindSphere Innovation Network (MINe) aims to connect estate and research assets from Universities throughout the UK and across the globe, into our innovative Internet of Things platform (IoT); MindSphere
We've partnered with Universities such as the University of Sheffield and Newcastle University.
At Sheffield we have worked to create a new space, the MindSphere Lounge, that will allow students, local businesses and other digital partners to colloborate and access data from across their campus via MindSphere.
A Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) at Keele University
In 2018 Siemens partnered with Keele University to turn the campus into Europe’s biggest smart energy network demonstrator, aiming to reduce carbon emissions and improve security of supply to the campus. The SEND microgrid will be a ‘living laboratory’ for research into low carbon energy systems and development of new smart energy technologies and services for university students, business and industry.

Smart start for Smart Buildings
What is the potential for “self-financing” smart-building conversion? Using private sector finance solutions, building owners can harness savings gained from smart upgrades and deploy these savings to faciliate self-financing style investment. Read more in our whitepaper!
Transforming Faith-Based Campus Infrastructure
Did you know that the average deferred maintenance backlog for private university campus buildings has grown to over $90/gsf, posing budgetary, reliability, and enrollment risk to many institutions of higher education? Leading institutions recognize the value of their facilities and campus environment in attracting, retaining, and teaching students. Investing in a modern, safe, energy-efficient, and student-friendly campus can pay dividends.

Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory has facilitated the study of the complex environmental issues facing the planet, with a focus on sustainable development
Since its founding in 1949, the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory—a research unit of Columbia University located 15 miles north of the campus on a forested 157 acres overlooking the Hudson River—has facilitated the study of the complex environmental issues facing the planet, with a focus on sustainable development. Now, appropriately, its use of solar power is crucial to a university-wide goal of reducing carbon emissions by 35 percent in the next three years.
