In May 2014 Siemens, together with the public utilities of Mainz, Linde and the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, has laid the foundation stone for a new type of energy storage system. Now, time has come: By pressing a symbolic button, the Chairman of the Board of Linde Group, Dr. Wolfgang Büchele, Siemens board member Professor Siegfried Russwurm, two board members of Stadtwerke Mainz AG, Detlev Höhne and Dr. Tobias Brosze, and Professor Dr. Detlev Reymann, President of RheinMain University, officially launched a hydrogen production plant at the Energiepark Mainz on July 2, 2015. With the support of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology as part of the Energy Storage Funding Initiative the 17-million-project could be realized.

Innovative approaches in the sector of service for offshore wind power can make a vital contribution in the future to further reducing the costs for electricity generated by offshore wind farms. The first two special vessels for this service were christened this week in Rostock and Hamburg. These Service Operation Vessels (SOVs), the Esvagt Fraude and the Esvagt Faraday, which are unique in the world, will now begin their duty to revolutionize service for offshore wind turbine power plants.

Siemens has handed over the first four North Sea grid connections to its customer TenneT. The German-Dutch transmission grid operator has accepted the projects following successful completion of test runs by Siemens. The grid connections HelWin1 and HelWin2, BorWin2 and SylWin1 are therefore now in commercial operation. BorWin3, the fifth grid connection, which was contracted in spring 2014, is slated to go on-line in 2019. About five million households will be supplied with electricity generated from wind power via this five links. Thanks to the use of high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) transmission technology, the losses over those links are less than four percent.

In today's globalized world, businesses have to be competitive on a global level. As the seventh wealthiest economy in the world and the strongest in Latin America, Brazil is ready to take the next step toward securing its national growth and development. Siemens is dedicated to helping shape Brazil's future by fostering "Industrie 4.0" – the next industrial revolution – in order to make a difference in the way that digitalization boosts automation and electrification. Furthermore, Siemens and the Fundação Dom Cabral business school will publish a study that asked 250 Brazilian customers from 20 different industries about the impact that digitalization is having on their business.

Three natural gas-fired combined cycle power plants - each powered by eight Siemens H-Class gas turbines - and up to 600 wind turbines will boost Egypt's power generation capacity by more than 50 percent compared to the currently installed base. Beginning in 2017, they will add power to the grid in stages and will add an additional 16.4 gigawatts in total to Egypt's national grid. This will support the country's rapid economic development and meet its growing population's demand for power. The volume of €8 billion is the single biggest order for Siemens up to now. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel witnessed the signing ceremony in Berlin, Germany.

The world's first electrical car and passenger ferry powered by batteries has entered service in Norway. The ferry only uses 150 kilowatt hours (kWh) per route, which corresponds to three days use of electricity in a standard Norwegian household. Built in conjunction with shipbuilder Fjellstrand, Siemens developed the ferry's drive system and put up charging stations with lithium-ion batteries which are charged from renewable energy, namely hydro power. With the change to battery, ship owner Norled is reducing the cost of fuel by up to 60 percent.
