Megatrends

Sustainable Urban Development

Globalization & Urbanization

  • Cities are competing globallyto make their urban areas attractive to live and to invest in
  • Global players / trade volume increase
  • 2030: 60% of population in cities
  • High density living demands for new patterns in infrastructure

Demographic Change

  • 65+ generation will nearly double by 2030 (from 7% to 12%)
  • Need for adequate infrastructuresas well as health- and elder care
  • Challenge to balance between competitiveness, environment and quality of life, and to finance infrastructure solutions
  • Achieve committed CO2 targets

Climate Change

  • Cities responsible for ~80% GHG
  • Need for resource efficiencyand environmental care
siemens insights into how to become sustainable jointly developed with major world cities
Siemens insights into "how to become sustainable", jointly developed with major world cities

Perceptionstudies

Megacity Challenges

  • Comprehensive analysis based on interviews with over 500 city managers in 25 selected megacities
  • Urban infrastructure trends and challenges as well as global best practices
  • Commissioned research to GlobScan and MRCMH
  • Other studies: The Sustainable Cities Challenge in Canada,ICT for City Management

Comparativestudies

  • Green City Index (commissioned research to EIU)
    • Index compares cities across 8 dimensions of sustainability: CO2, Energy, Buildings, Transport, Waste & Land Use, Water, Air, Governance
    • Europe, Africa, North / South America, Asia, Germany
  • Deep-Dives in infrastructure, e.g. Complete Mobility Index

Implemen-tation studies

  • Sustainable urban infrastructure series
  • "How to become a sustainable city" with focus on measures for resource efficiency and CO2 abatement
  • Examples: Dublin, London, Munich, Yekaterinburg, Trondheim, ...
cities need pioneering solutions to solve their problems
Cities need pioneering solutions to solve their problems
  • How to get enough electric power, …how to bring enough goods into the city?
  • How to manage the ever increasing traffic?
  • How to reduce the energy consumption … and emissions?
  • How to ensure security and safetyof people?
  • How to finance all this?

Sustainable Green Growth –Siemens examples for energy efficiency in the city

Existing technology achieves high gains in efficiency and CO2 abatement

Renewables

Wind turbines: Efficiency up from 1 MW to 6 MW (gearless)

CO2-free energy to the city

Example HVDC: China 800 kV, 6.4 GW, 2,000 km

Building technologies

30% less energy used through buildingenergy management

Traffic management system

  • Traffic speed: +37%
  • Commuter times cut by 17%

SIPLINK

12 tons less CO2 emis-sions per ship and day by local grid connection

Efficient energy production

Combined Cycle: From 50% to 60%

Steam Power Plant: From 40% to 47%

High-voltage urban link

Efficient energy transport by HV close to the consumer

Industry

40% less energy consumption with variable-speed drives

Complete Mobility

Higher attractiveness of public transport (reduced waiting and up to 20% fuel savings)

Street lighting

Potential in Europe:3.5 million tons less CO2 emissions with LED systems
