Siemens – a vision of the urban future


Hanover - The Siemens Infrastructure & Cities Sector is presenting innovative products, solutions and concepts for the urban world of the future at Metropolitan Solutions 2013 in Hanover, Germany. In line with the motto “Answers for infrastructure and cities,” this Siemens sector demonstrates how cities can cope with the challenges posed by their rapid development and responds to questions regarding infrastructure sustainability and efficiency worldwide. In an area covering 250 square meters (hall 1, booth B09), presentations, demo points and models highlight the leading role played by Siemens as a pioneer and partner for cities and other infrastructure customers.

“Cities are still the engines of growth in our age,” says Dr. Roland Busch, CEO of the Infrastructure & Cities Sector and Member of the Siemens Managing Board. “By the year 2050, the urban population will grow by 70 percent – from 3.6 billion people today to more than 6 billion. There is already a huge demand for urban infrastructures, and this trend will continue in the future.”

Siemens offers solutions for integrated mobility and logistics, efficient buildings, security, smart power grids, water resources management and project financing. Being a pioneer in energy efficiency and intelligent infrastructure solutions, Siemens has the portfolio and the expertise required to improve the quality of life in urban environments.

Highlights at the stand include the following:

* An interactive model of an intelligent building demonstrating the efficiency of a building management system and the central role played by such buildings in the smart power grids of the future.
* A demo point showing how the Smart Grid Compass gives energy providers and grid operators reliable guidance for planning smart power grids.
* A model of the Siestorage energy storage system illustrates how load and voltage fluctuations in the power grid can be brought into balance. Siestorage acts as an energy buffer, storing energy and releasing it within milliseconds to stabilize electrical power grids.
* The Avenio low-floor tram can be integrated into existing urban infrastructures and covers capacity requirements ranging from S to XXL. Visitors can configure “their own Avenio” at one of the demo points at the stand.
* A demo point dedicated to e-ticketing realistically shows how smooth and easy it is to pay for tickets using a smart card solution that can be integrated in a number of different modes of transportation.
