Energy efficiency – the right balance between comfort, building performance and sustainability

Siemens offers systematic approach to the lifecycle of your building, allowing you to benefit from lower energy costs and a positive public image.

Buildings represent 40% of primary energy use globally, and energy consumption in buildings is projected to rise sustainably.
At the same time increasing resource scarcity, legal risks and growing operating costs as well as different requirements from different users, are just some of the challenges that need to be taken into consideration when thinking about energy efficiency and sustainable buildings.
With systematic approaches adapted to the lifecycle of your building supported by services, products and technologies from Siemens you'll not only benefit long-term from lower energy costs but also from a higher building value and a positive public image.
