Siemens AG / Infrastructure & Cities Sector
Damages caused by extreme weather phenomena are increasing around the globe. In 2012, the costs of such damages totaled approximately US$160 billion worldwide. To show how cities can better protect themselves against natural disasters like hurricane Sandy, Siemens has joined forces with Regional Plan Association and the consulting firm Arup to prepare a study on resilient urban infrastructure. Results show that technology is a key component of resilient and efficient infrastructure protection.
The final study is available now.
