Siemens has introduced a Building Energy Management System (BEMS) for behind-the-meter optimisation, Koen Bogers, Senior Executive Vice President, Building Technologies, Siemens Middle East, told Climate Control Middle East.
“The BEMS optimisation leverages the integration of renewables and energy storage,” Bogers said. “It enables the buildings to participate in the energy market, offering flexibility and control reserves.”
The R&D is being carried out in Aspern, Austria as a joint venture between Siemens CT and EM.
Bogers said his team is aiming at “developing the most energy-efficient office concept by 2018.” “The ‘3for2’ concept, which integrates design and construction, offers a paradigm shift in the way sustainable high-rise buildings can be realised,” he said. “The system proposes that lean and energy-efficient technologies for air -conditioning and related services can be successfully integrated into building structures, to save not only energy but also considerable space and materials.”
