Linz, Austria, Mar 23, 2012
In 2010, around 400 million tons of electric steel were produced worldwide, just under 29 percent of total steel production. The share is close to 50 percent in Europe and to some extent even significantly higher in North America, Africa, India and the Near East. The main feedstock is scrap and direct reduced iron (DRI), the latter being used primarily in India and the Near East. By recycling scrap, electric steel production makes a significant contribution toward protecting raw material resources.

Istanbul is a cultural crossroads – the place where Europe meets Asia and East meets West. But the city also exemplifies the enormous challenges facing booming urban centers around the world – challenges in everything from expanding transportation infrastructures to energy supply. Siemens is helping master these challenges in both Istanbul and the rest of Turkey, such as the new Marmaray Tunnel. The 13-kilometer tunnel beneath the Bosporus links the regional train lines on the city's European and Asian sides. Siemens supplied all the tunnel's signaling and control systems.

In the German city of Mainz 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. From spring 2015, the system, equipped with an electrolyzer from Siemens, will convert surplus electricity from wind farms to hydrogen. The hydrogen will then be stored locally in tankers or fed directly into the natural gas grid for subsequent power or heat generation. In this way, it will be possible to store electricity from renewable sources over longer periods of time. The tankers will also be able to supply the growing network of hydrogen filling stations for emission-free fuel-cell vehicles.
