Siemens is making the world's second tallest office building even greener. Representatives of Taipei 101 and Siemens recently signed a memorandum of understanding that paves the way for the installation of Siemens Navigator, a cloud-based energy and sustainability management platform for buildings. Located in Taiwan's capital of Taipei, Taipei 101 is the world's second tallest office building with a height of 508 meters. Completed in 2004, the skyscraper is one of the city's most recognizable landmarks.
Siemens is supplying the charging technology for hybrid buses used on a bus route in Stockholm. The buses, which are equipped with a combined electric-diesel drive system, were manufactured by Volvo Bus Cooperation, with which Siemens is cooperating on electric bus systems.
Trucks equipped with electric pantographs are traveling a public road for the first time. Siemens has installed an overhead line for electric and hybrid trucks in Sweden. Two diesel hybrids from automotive maker Scania are being powered by electricity here, thus running exhaust-gas free. Siemens installed the two-kilometer eHighway north of Stockholm. The technology is expected to prove itself in practice there by 2018.

An electric aircraft motor unveiled by Siemens in 2015 is a true powerhouse. Weighing only 50 kilograms, it generates 260 kilowatts of power, resulting in an unprecedented power-to-weight ratio. And that’s not the only reason it will make aviation history. Siemens experts also installed the motor and its entire power train into a two-seater aircraft, the Extra 330LE.
Siemens’ new headquarters complex in the heart of Munich will use 90 percent less electricity, 75 percent less water, and generate 90 percent less CO2 than its predecessor. What’s more, it is already one of the most modern and sustainable office complexes in the world.
