SIESTORAGE - initial installation at Enel in Italy

Continuous Power Flow? Totally Integrated!

Walking from one end of Siemens’ 3,500-sqm exhibition area to the other at this year’s Hannover Messe one solution was prevalent across all areas, from Energy to Industry: Totally Integrated Power. It was a way to physically experience the comprehensive scope of Siemens’ end-to-end portfolio encompassing software and hardware products, systems and solutions for all voltage levels – from high-voltage in-feed, to low-voltage consumption, from grid access via industry application to home supply. Ba ...

Saving costs is an important factor in the wind energy business

Higher Cost Efficiency for Wind Energy

In an environmentally friendly generation mix, wind energy is now playing a major role the world over. A long way to come for a comparatively young technology. While developments to tap its full potential are still well under way, Siemens’ wind energy innovations showcased  at this year’s Hannover Messe have  one goal in common: To make the well-established renewable energy source more cost efficient. Siemens is aiming to reduce the costs of wind power. Different approaches will contribute to t ...

Digitalization is enhancing Sustainable Energy Production - ALICE is a self-optimization process that has been developed to teach wind turbines how to automatically and optimally adapt their operation to its local conditions

The Winds of Digital Change - How Digitalization is enhancing Sustainable Energy Generation

As in previous years, the vast majority of solutions being showcased at this year’s Hannover Messe are focused on industrial digitalization in line with that ubiquitous buzzword, Industrie 4.0. As a counterpoint to this prevailing wind, I’d like to use this post to take a look at how digitalization is also revolutionizing the way energy is generated – and more specifically, wind energy. Two innovations in particular have caught my eye this year at the Siemens booth in Hall 9, which show how digi ...

How Digitization Drives Smart Grid Innovation

At this year’s Hannover Messe Siemens is showcasing the opportunities of Industry 4.0 and digitization for the energy business. The first blog post in the Hannover Messe series explained how necessary gains along the wind energy value chain can only be achieved with intelligent, digital solutions – ranging from software for blade optimization via control systems for wind power plants to machine learning solutions for wind turbine self optimization. Next, I would like to introduce a further promi ...

the efficiency of the overall system is the key to further lowering the levelized cost of energy from wind

Sustainable energy – efficiency is crucial

Only six more weeks to go until this year’s Hannover Messe, and our preparations for this important event are, of course, running full speed ahead. The motto of the Siemens booth this year is “On the way to Industrie 4.0 – Driving the Digital Enterprise.” But what kinds of highlights and surprises can visitors to the trade show expect to find? In a Hannover Messe blog series our colleague Adam Wesoly offers a preview of what’s to come over the next few weeks.For me, the development of wind power ...

Hannover Messe 2014 - Energy storage opportunities are everywhere

Part 3 of Prof. Dr. Michael Weinhold’s insights into the future of energy from an interview given at Hannover Messe on April 8:  “I like to think of storage in the widest sense,” says Dr. Weinhold. “It’s not only about storing electricity for later use. It’s also about crossing over into other infrastructures like mobility. For example, we see it now in electic and hybrid cars that carry batteries. (As an aside, at Dr. Weinholds university institute they converted a Trabant into an E-Trabi as fa ...

Hannover Messe 2014 - The future of energy looks bright

Several impressive possibilities for the future of energy were showcased at Hannover Messe. And many of the 50 speakers at Siemens Future Forum made it abundantly clear that the ways in which we choose to consume renewables and non-renewables over the coming decades will have significant social, economic and environmental implications. When asked about his impressions of the fair, Mr. Jan-Peter Schwartz, Head of Communications Siemens Energy, said: “Siemens has attended the Hannover Fair since 1 ...

Hannover Messe 2014 - Compact systems promise a big future for HVDC applications

The better an innovation the more startling its impact. In these terms the recent innovations in the field of gas insulation are very impressive indeed. “Replacing air insulation with gas insulation in power transmission systems can result in space savings of up to 95%,” says Denis Imamovic, who heads development of gas-insulated direct current systems within the Siemens Power Transmission Division.“This innovation translates directly into parallel savings in costs, especially in high-density u ...

Dr Boehm at the Life needs power Forum 2014

Hannover Messe 2014 - Thinking big on energy development

The big picture is a big deal according to Dr Hans-Peter Böhm of Siemens, who spoke at “Life Needs Power” – The Energy Forum at Hannover Fair 2014 on Monday, April 7. “The most important thing to do when considering the future of energy is to think about the entire system,” he said. He made the remark after a panel discussion that featured Prof. Jochen Kreusel (ETG-VDE), Hildegard Müller (BDEW), Dr Jürgen Tzschoppe (Statkraft), Harald Uphoff (BEE) and Prof. Christof Weber (Universität Duisburg ...
