Siemens aims to be the world's first major industrial company to achieve a net-zero carbon footprint by 2030. The company plans to cut its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions – which currently total about 2.2 million metric tons a year – in half by as early as 2020. To achieve these goals, Siemens will invest some €100 million over the next three years in order to reduce the energy footprint of its production facilities and buildings.

According to a study, every car driver wastes about 100 hours a year on average looking for a parking space and causes one third of traffic in city centers. That costs time, gas and nerves. The Siemens innovation is making targeted use of the opportunities offered by digitalization: smart sensors, smart software and smart data interpretation. The benefits are clear: smart infrastructures save time, protect the environment and ultimately improve the quality of life for city dwellers.

In the exhibition area "New Mobility World", Siemens shows solutions for tomorrow's traffic and mobility from September 15 to 27, 2015. Technologies range from intelligent traffic management systems for cities, smart sensors that watch out for free parking spaces, to electric drives for electric cars. Siemens supports a comprehensive network of differing transportation services, intelligently combined with individual means of transport. In addition, Siemens advances electromobility as a partner to the automotive industry – offering electric drives and conducting research and development on revolutionary electronic architectures for future cars.

We held our Industry Analyst Conference from Sep 8-9 in Boston. Dr. Horst J. Kayser, Chief Strategy Officer, Siemens AG, talked about our digitalization strategy in his opening key note. The event program was designed to gain a deeper understanding of digitalization and how it is shaping both the dynamics of today's industrial, energy and datacenter markets and our strategy for market leadership. Our leadership team presented the current status of and future roadmaps for our technologies and solutions. Siemens customers were there to share their challenges and strategies, as well as their experiences working with Siemens.

Let the good times roll: Over the next two weeks, more than six million people from all around the world will be enjoying themselves at the Oktoberfest in Munich. Traditionally, Siemens supplies drives and control systems as well as energy distribution for the festival's rides. Automation solutions from Siemens also control special beer pipelines – the only ones of its kind worldwide –that supply the Hacker, Winzerer Faehndl and Braeurosl festival tents with their tasty Oktoberfest brews. Because many breweries use Siemens technologies within their brewing process, Siemens doesn't only ensure fresh beer at the Oktoberfest.
Munich / Cuxhaven, Aug 13, 2015
Siemens is investing around €200 million to a wind turbine manufacturing facility in Cuxhaven, Germany. A few days after announcing this project an official signing ceremony took place at the planned site of the factory. The new production will be located directly at the edge of the harbor and will have a surface area of 170,000 square meters – the size of roughly 24 soccer fields. By mid-2017 the production of nacelles for the next-generation wind turbines D7 is to begin.

40 years after the launch of its first series model, Siretom, Siemens Healthcare is looking back on the successful development of its computed tomography division. With innovations such as Spiral, Multislice, and most recently Dual Source technology, Siemens has been driving the CT market and clinical diagnostics for decades. Today, three patients are scanned with a Siemens CT system every second. The company's portfolio ranges from robust systems for basic care, such as Somatom Scope, through to the world's fastest and most powerful CT scanner, Somatom Force.

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.
