More than 1,100 Siemens employees work across 14 facilities in the Los Angeles community spanning its infrastructure, healthcare, and software businesses. Working in partnership with the City of Los Angeles, a leader in clean energy and climate resilience, Siemens published the City Performance Tool (CyPT) report highlighting how clean, sustainable technologies can help the city create more than 1.8 million jobs by 2050.
Critical Data Insight at LAX
Siemens intelligent building technologies are helping Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) access critical airport operations data in real-time.
Siemens technology provides real-time data needed for analysis and rapid decision-making in the air and on the ground during normal and crisis scenarios. Since its installation in 2015, the technology has improved customer experience, safety and security in and around the airport.
Siemens Demonstrates First eHighway System in the Nation
South of LA, Siemens set up the nation’s first electric highway, demonstrating how its truck electrification technology has the potential to reduce carbon emissions by over 6 million tons.
The eHighway demonstration supplied big-rig trucks with electric power, similar to how modern-day streetcars are powered on city streets. Electrifying heavy-duty trucks, the number one sources of smog-forming emissions in Southern California, will help improve air quality and reduce CO2 emissions.

Helping Cities Map Mobility Plans
Siemens eMobility calculator projects that a city like LA would need to install up to 100 electric vehicle (EV) chargers per week – starting now and continuing through 2050 – to accommodate an all-electric vehicle landscape. And by adopting more shared eMobility options like electric vehicles and public transport, LA could reclaim 720,000 square feet of land, which equates to enough space for over 500,000 new homes.
Reducing GHGs by 80% by 2050
LA City Performance Tool
In conjunction with the LA Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, Siemens published its LA City Performance Tool report, identifying potential measures to achieve its 2015 Sustainable City pLAn goals and maintain its status as a leader in U.S. city sustainability goals. The pLAn, a roadmap to ensure a more equitable, prosperous and cleaner city for all residents sets targets for LA to reduce GHGs 60 percent by 2035 and by 80 percent by 2050.
The Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor Agency and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) introduced new Siemens-built locomotives to the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner service at Los Angeles Union Station. The Charger, manufactured out of Siemens Sacramento hub, is the first passenger locomotive to receive the stringent Tier IV emissions certification from the Environmental Protection Agency.
