Ingenuity for life
From inventiveness to Ingenuity for life
For almost 170 years we have been finding ways to improve life in many areas. With our passion for technology, we set standards and create sustainable value – for our customers, for society and for each individual. Our company founder Werner von Siemens would have called this inventiveness. Today we call it Ingenuity for life.
Ingenuity for life ensures the foundation for a strong economy, by mastering the challenges of today’s energy landscape. For example intelligent technologies ensure a stable power supply by managing fluctuations from wind and solar energy sources.
Ingenuity for life brings industry into the future. Mass production thus becomes so flexible that it can even fulfil individual requirements. For example, through the digitalization of the whole production process.
Ingenuity for life makes our cities more liveable and appealing, by making them more efficient and environmentally friendly, and improving punctuality. For example, intelligent networking and control of traffic signals give priority to buses and emergency vehicles.
Together with our customers we tackle the many challenges that face us. Through our expertise in the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization, we improve the lives of people today and create lasting value for future generations.
This is what drives us and this is what we promise. This is Ingenuity for life.

Future of manufacturing
Faster and more flexible production
Digitalization is dramatically transforming manufacturing. Both process and discrete industries are benefitting from seamless integration of data from product development, production and supply chain. This helps manufacturers to respond flexibly to the specific needs of their customers.
Satisfying individual customer demands and strengthening industry around the world
Competition for industrial enterprises is more intense than ever. Digitalization is putting manufacturing processes on a new track: Plants, products and machines will become more and more networked in an integrated value chain. The main challenges for discrete and process industry are the same: shorten time-to-market, increase flexibility and efficiency.
More and more customers today desire customized products that are affordable, and yet still manufactured to a professional standard and delivered in a timely manner. In order to fulfill these expectations, industrial manufacturers and SMEs must produce goods with a high degree of flexibility and manage the whole process from ordering, product development, production and delivery.
Siemens’ innovations enable manufacturers to upgrade to the latest digital product development and production methods. As a result, companies can significantly improve flexibility and speed, and thus increase customer satisfaction.
Industry is responsible for ¼ of the energy used worldwide.

Sensors, software and control systems are the hallmarks of intelligent infrastructure: making traffic flow smoother, reducing energy consumption, protecting the environment and ensuring cities are attractive places to live and do business in.
Economies and cities need to be competitive and provide a high quality of life.
A functioning infrastructure is the backbone of cities and entire economies. It provides mobility, energy, water, security and a high quality of life. Local and national governments must ensure that infrastructures support both current and future demands. Intelligent infrastructures ensure efficient and reliable delivery of essential services.
Intelligent building management increases security and comfort through IT and automation. In addition it optimizes energy production and consumption in buildings.
Smart, integrated mobility systems ensure high capacity utilization and availability – at lower costs. What's more, people benefit from greater convenience, safety and punctuality.
For economies and cities with limited funds, intelligent technologies are a fast and efficient manner to optimize existing infrastructures. Siemens can help unlock the potential by providing innovative financing solutions.

Reliable and affordable energy
The shifting energy landscape
Fossil fuels have long been an important source of energy in Ireland, but environmental and financial concerns mean that measures are being taken to create a cleaner energy future. Ingenuity is helping Ireland’s shift to a sustainable energy landscape. Back in 2005, just 5% of Ireland’s electricity demand was met by wind. The aim is to increase this to 40% by 2020. And the country is on target – in 2015, wind met a fifth of Ireland’s electricity demand.
Nonetheless, the path to a sustainable energy future is complex and challenging. Ireland continues to import much of its energy, which is both a fiscal drain and a waste of the country’s natural resources. Intelligent, cost-effective solutions are required to ensure a stable power supply.
Siemens ingenuity is helping Ireland to meet its goals. Siemens supplied the turbines for the Hollyford wind farm near Tipperary, which has the capacity to produce 9 megawatts of renewable energy. Siemens is also supplying turbines for two other Irish wind farms – those in Cloosh Valley and Sliabh Bawn. In Cloosh Valley alone, the farm is expected to produce enough renewable energy to power 84,000 homes – meeting 90% of household power consumption in County Galway.
Ireland has one of Europe’s greatest wind energy resources, and exploiting this benefits the Irish economy while ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come.
