Siemens is a global powerhouse in electronics and electrical engineering, operating in industry, energy, and healthcare sectors.
For over 160 years, Siemens has been standing for technical achievements based on innovation, quality and reliability. Today, Siemens is the world’s pre-eminent green company. Energy efficiency and sustainability are priorities that infuse all our businesses. Siemens’ environmental portfolio is the largest in the world and the company provides answers to the challenges of climate change and demographic change on-target second to none.
Drawing on 140 years of experience in the energy sector, and nearly 30 years as a major innovation driver in the wind power industry, Siemens has proven itself to be a trustworthy and reliable business partner. The combination of robust and reliable wind turbines, highly efficient solutions for power transmission and distribution and a deep understanding of the entire energy market ensure that Siemens will continue to be a leading supplier.
Siemens, the Danish Building and Property Agency and Roskilde University have recently finalised the biggest national ESCO project in Denmark. The successful energy renovation of the university’s buildings reduces yearly energy consumption by 27% and saves around DKK 4 million (EUR 538,000) each year.
In the summer of 2008, the Lillgrund offshore wind farm in Øresund near Malmö in Sweden was inaugurated. The 48 2.3 MW wind turbines delivered by Siemens Wind Power were ordered by Vattenfall AB, which now owns two of the three largest offshore wind farms in the world, and thus mark an important step in […]
Scottish Power holds largest onshore wind farm in Europe The wind farm is the utility Scottish Power, and the turbines for this project are supplied by Siemens. The scope of this Siemens project also includes installation, commissioning and a service and maintenance agreement. The wind farm will consist of 140 2.3 MW wind turbines and […]
Complete solutions for the entire lifecycle of wind farms With offshore wind farms now firmly established as a viable resource of revenue and energy, more and more energy providers are looking to reap the rewards from harvesting ocean winds. Offshore wind farms are proving to be extremely profitable over the entire life cycle of a […]
Static VAR compensation (SVC) plays an important role in a stable power supply. To build up the electromagnetic fields needed for power generation, “reactive power” is used, which has to be drawn from the grid. In the case of wind power, this poses a particular challenge – because of changing wind speeds, wind turbines cannot […]
This white paper takes you through all the elements of the success story of wind energy in Denmark. From the starting point and what we now consider small-scale wind turbines to the projects and technologies that push the bar and the ambitions for wind energy as a source of renewable energy. We hope you will be inspired.
When looking at the global climate challenges, the energy system is one of the biggest obstacles towards a carbon-free and net-zero future. The European Union has set ambitious objectives for an energy system, which integrates renewable energy and energy efficiency, as well as enabling a well-functioning energy market. These elements in combination can support a […]
