Beyond smart: How the grid-interactive building will form an essential component of the new energy system
A new generation of buildings at the grid edge, where smart building meets smart grid, is contributing to the decarbonisation, digitalisation and democratisation of the energy system. Thomas Kiessling, CTO of Siemens Smart Infrastructure, explains the transformative power of the grid-interactive building.
Smart buildings connect the physical and digital worlds, unlocking huge potential for people, the economy and the environment. Henning Sandfort of Siemens Smart Infrastructure discusses the need to place individuals at the heart of smart design.
Visible change: Why the future of electrification is defined by transparency, data and digitalisation
Smart electrical infrastructure at the low and medium-voltage levels is a fundamental element of a fully networked energy system. Andreas Matthé of Siemens Smart Infrastructure outlines how greater connectivity is building intelligence into electrification.
Decentralised generation will serve shifting electricity requirements, but also brings unique challenges. How can microgrids help deliver reliable, sustainable solutions? And what lessons are being drawn from Siemens own microgrid, powering its campus in Vienna?
For communities looking to achieve energy resilience and engage in the energy transition, an intelligently managed microgrid system can optimise flexibility, while cutting costs and carbon emissions.
The transition to electric vehicles requires significant expansion of infrastructure and network capacity to accommodate charging. How will distribution systems keep up with demand, while being future-proofed against evolving mobility requirements?
As we emerge from the pandemic, to what extent have interpretations of a more sustainable, citizen-centric and safer urban environment shifted – and what does best practice look like? Dave Hopping of Siemens Smart Infrastructure and Expo 2020 Dubai’s Nadimeh Mehra give us a glimpse of the future.
Join the dots: How the smart campus concept can help better harness renewables, empower communities, and decarbonise our cities
Smart campuses making efficient use of building space, energy and mobility could help urban centres to curb carbon emissions and drive energy transition. Siemens Smart Infrastructure’s Matthias Rebellius and IRENA’s Gauri Singh discuss the need for innovation and collaboration at a localised level in order to deliver urban decarbonisation.
Life on the edge: How grid edge innovations are enabling a more sustainable, decentralised and equitable energy system
The coupling of an increasingly decentralised power grid and advanced new technologies presents an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate energy transition. Michael Weinhold of Siemens Smart Infrastructure outlines how innovation at the grid edge will be a key component in delivering a more sustainable future.
A sustainable energy future will be built on digital platforms for improving efficiency, optimising management, improving operational processes and coordinating an increasingly decentralised distribution network. Matthias Rebellius, CEO, Siemens Smart Infrastructure, discusses the factors driving digitalisation in the energy market and the new business models required to deliver this change.
