America’s first utility-driven microgrid cluster makes a historic Chicago community more resilient

In Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood, Siemens is helping a major utility build resilience and reliability that benefit residents by using a microgrid to optimize energy it gets from the established grid. The Siemens microgrid management system makes sure electricity keeps flowing and targets disruptions.

We Are Committed to Achieving a Net Zero-Carbon Footprint

As a global technology powerhouse, Siemens is well positioned to drive solutions on electrification, automation and digitalisation to help accelerate the clean energy transition. I’m delighted that they are addressing their own operations too – through renewable power, smarter energy use and electric transport.

An Action Plan for a Decarbonized Future

Buildings account for nearly 40 percent of energy-related CO2 emissions annually.  That’s a major climate impact that can be controlled right now.  Utilizing Siemens technologies, buildings can be smart, safe, and carbon neutral and capable of capitalizing on data to meet sustainability and efficiency targets.

The ability of comprehensive energy-management systems to set key performance metrics for resilience, efficiency, and new technologies can accelerate the pace of investment in clean-energy projects.

Buildings play a key role in how sustainably and competitively organizations fulfill their mission: they impact financial and reputational strength, service delivery capability, as well as employee well-being and productivity. Learn more about the services and solutions that can provide that competitive edge.

Environmental Innovation at Work

Onsite power systems, like microgrids, are ready and able to be the backbone for a new, decentralized model of power delivery.  These systems will prepare grid networks for unpredictable spikes in demand.  Siemens envisions large consumers of power using these onsite power systems to supplement the connection to the utility grid.  They’ll be able to insulate their services from outages and serve as a local grid resource as needed.
