Siemens Releases 2023 Digital-Transformation Report. Key Technologies to “Net-Zero” Target

Siemens recently released the Siemens Global Infrastructure Transformation Survey 2023, which examines in detail the challenges and opportunities facing global infrastructure as it undergoes a carbon-reducing transformation. By analysing and communicating with 1,400 companies and their executives around the world, the report analyses the current state of infrastructure transformation, its imperatives, and the road ahead…

Version 2.2.2

Based on the feedback, only 38% of the executives surveyed believe that their country has a unified or effective decarbonization strategy. 46% of respondents believe that they will be able to meet this year’s decarbonization target, 40% believe it is likely, and 44% believe it is unlikely. Regulators bear the greatest responsibility in driving infrastructure transformation. However, regulators will also need to construct new frameworks to govern a changing and uncertain set of systems at different stages of implementation.

Version 2.2.2

The report draws in the following three conclusions:

⦁ 基础设施转型是在一个不断演变世界中的转变。它依据的并非总体蓝图,而是通过探索可能性、实施战略性建设和不断适应并调整这样一个循环逐步推进。
Infrastructure transformation is a shift in an evolving world. It is not based on an overarching blueprint, but rather progresses incrementally through a cycle of exploring possibilities, building strategically, and adapting and adjusting continuously.

⦁ 基础设施转型的紧迫性决定了这是一个无法避免的现实。政府间气候变化专门委员会的报告显示,全球气温的每一次上升都将“加剧多种同时发生的危险”,而如果要将升温幅度限制在 1.5 ° C 或 2 ° C 以下,我们必须“在 2030 年之前迅速且大幅减少所有行业的温室气体排放,而且大多数行业必须立即行动起来。”
The urgency of the infrastructure transition is such that it is an unavoidable reality. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), each increase in global temperature will “exacerbate the risk of multiple simultaneous events”, and if we are to limit warming to less than 1.5 °C or 2 °C, we must “reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from all sectors, and most sectors must reduce their GHG emissions rapidly and substantially by 2030”. GHG emissions by 2030, and most industries must act now.

⦁ 基础设施转型的目标是重塑基础设施,不仅要实现能源系统和工业运营的去碳化,还要提高资源效率并产生积极的社会经济影响。
The goal of the Infrastructure Transformation is to reshape infrastructure not only to decarbonize energy systems and industrial operations, but also to improve resource efficiency and generate positive socio-economic impacts.

In the Chinese market, Siemens is closely cooperating with China Europe Carbon Neutral (CNEUCN) as strategic business partner and CNEUCN’s Expert Committee member. In particular, by Siemens’s smart infrastructures and building products contribution it can be reached a substantial carbon emission reduction. Then, synergically operating with the other CNEUCN partners’ technologies and equipment, it can allow to reach the comprehensive carbon neutrality at large scale.

By participating in various conferences and capacity building activities, held by CNEUCN, Siemens has been leveraging its presence in the carbon-neutrality related areas over the past year in China. Integration, synergic actions and value-added provision by many world leader experts and companies are among the added value characteristics of CNEUCN initiative.

Five technologies solutions will play a fundamental role to reach carbon neutrality.
⦁ 智能电网
⦁ Smart Grids
通过智能配电,智能电网可以管理波动的能源供应和需求,实现 100% 的灵活性和稳定性,从而实现能源转型。智能电网是弹性和清洁能源系统的重要基石。
By an intelligent distribution, they manage fluctuating energy supply and demand to achieve 100% flexibility as well as stability for the energy transition. Smart grids are an essential cornerstone for a resilient and clean energy system.
