Siemens is showcasing its urban solutions expertise for visitors to the Hannover Messe. With the help of selected lighthouse projects, the company is demonstrating, among other things, how smart grids can interact with intelligent building systems and how urban traffic flows can be optimized.
Siemens' activities in the areas of smart grids, power distribution and mobility solutions are all part of its newly established Infrastructure & Cities Sector. "Cities are a key growth market for the future. As an integrated technology company, we're already better positioned than any other company to meet the demand for sustainable urban infrastructures," said Roland Busch, member of Siemens' Managing Board and CEO of its Infrastructure & Cities Sector, in Hanover, Germany. "At this trade fair, we're showcasing innovations that can make tomorrow's cities ecofriendlier and more livable."
In cities, the infrastructure market addressable by Siemens totals about €300 billion a year. The segment of this market that lies within governments' sphere of influence is growing particularly fast. By 2015, this segment will have a market volume of €100 billion – an annual growth rate of five percent. Siemens wants to be a leading participant in the dynamic growth now taking place in cities and infrastructure investment.
For this reason, the company has set up a fourth Sector, Infrastructure & Cities, in addition to its Industry, Energy and Healthcare Sectors. In the new Sector, which comprises selected businesses from the Industry and Energy Sectors, Siemens has bundled its expertise in promising infrastructure fields like smart grids and future-oriented transportation and power supply concepts.
