Siemens creates benefits for Canadians through its commitment to powerful innovation. With our customers, Siemens is helping to improve Canadians' quality of life.
Ingenuity for life
For over 100 years, Canadians have benefitted from Siemens' commitment to Innovation. And that's true today more than ever. Canadians can be where they need to be, power the technology they rely on, and access education to develop themselves as leaders.
Canadian businesses and consumers need reliability and flexibility, from transportation, to energy management and more. Siemens commitment to powerful innovation is bringing Canadians Ingenuity for life.
Siemens is helping Algonquin College redefine sustainability and energy management with an environmentally friendly infrastructure, an onsite microgrid and applied learning for their students. The partnership integrates right into the classroom, shaping faculty and students’ learning content and experience. The college is a living lab of what a green future really can look like.
A visionary partnership between Siemens and NB Power is establishing the utility as a leader in the global electricity industry. With Siemens Smart Grid solution, New Brunswickers are better managing their electricity consumption, embracing new forms of renewable energy and able to count on greater system-wide reliability.
Siemens is also changing the energy landscape in Alberta. Albertans rely less on traditional energy sources because ATCO and AltaLink have built a powerful energy backbone that brings clean, green energy from the windy south into the grid. Revolutionary converter stations help ensure 99.9 per cent reliability for the transmission system.
Public transportation in Calgary is also transforming. Siemens is providing Calgary Transit with new state-of-the-art light rail vehicles. Accessible to all riders, the cars were built to withstand Calgary’s extreme climate. Calgarians can rely on getting to their destination without delay.
Torontonians don't give a second thought to being warm in downtown hospitals, offices and homes on chilly days. Enwave Energy reliably heats 150 buildings in downtown Toronto, including mission-critical buildings like Ontario's world-renown hospitals. Enwave's heating plant is automated, monitored and managed by a control system from Siemens, which is fed critical real-time info from Siemens instrumentation.
Siemens is shaping the future for Canadians … that's Ingenuity for life.
|Energy! The elixir of our modern world. At home as well as at work. Residential and office buildings, industrial complexes and transport systems – all depend on a safe, clean and efficient energy supply.
Today’s energy markets are changing rapidly as a result of efforts to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and the growth of renewable energy sources. Alternative business models and innovative technologies are therefore essential to successfully transition to a new energy landscape.
It all begins with efficient energy production. Wind turbines on land and at sea, as well as turbines that convert energy from gas or coal into electricity – all must function at the highest possible degree of efficiency.
Delivering power requires low-loss and secure transmission and distribution systems. Intelligent networks will reliably integrate decentralized and fluctuating renewable energy supplies into the grid. Decentralized power plants and storage solutions will be connected together, creating virtual power plants that help stabilize the power grid. Finally, state-of-the-art control technology will boost the flexibility of power stations.
The lowest-priced energy is energy that is not needed. Therefore, energy-efficient technologies are key to reducing energy consumption in areas like buildings, production and transportation.
Algonquin College's students are learning sustainability hands-on
The College is a 'living lab' of best practices in green energy management
Siemens microgrid helps Algonquin create and store part of its own energy
AltaLink is harnessing wind in Alberta's windy south, and sending it north
Creation of a new energy backbone across the province uses highly innovative technology
Has the potential environmental benefit equal to taking thousands of cars off the road
ATCO is increasing the system's long-term reliability, while preparing for the future
Creation of a new energy backbone across Alberta uses highly innovative technology
Electricity now flows north-to-south AND south-to-north on bidirectional transmission lines
Enwave's mission-critical customers depend on having heat on cold days.
Customers include Toronto hospitals, businesses, government and residential buildings.
Siemens helps Enwave provide heat reliably via an automated process control system.
Use it or lose it. That was the ‘push’ model of electricity for the past 100 years.
Not anymore. Canadians can manage their own personal electricity consumption.
Siemens Smart Grid solution and NB Power are leading the way for ultilities worldwide.
