Good for Siemens, Great for the U.S.A.

Author: Paul Medina, Loads, Controls, Acoustics Team Lead We take a lot of pride in the SWT-2.3-120 because it benefits the U.S. market. We have built relationships with some of the people who are going to be working with and servicing this turbine, and we’ve seen where it is going to be installed and how well it’s going to perform. We’ve been to sites in Texas, Oklahoma Iowa and other states, and we know who we’re designing it for - we’re designing it for home. Personally, I find it very rewa ...

Weinhold’s Power Lines: Brains and Brawn - The Electronics Revolution and the Energy System

What is power? In human interactions, the term often refers to physical strength, but we also speak of “the power of information” as a way of shaping and directing the course of events. Power is the ability to influence the world in both material and immaterial ways – through intelligence and muscles, through brains and brawn. The same is true for the way in which electronics has reshaped the energy system. It was the invention of the transistor and its first commercial usage in the 1950s that ...

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 ...
