Sustainable water and energy solutions at Siemens 'Answers for the Environment'
29 - 30 June 2010, Ricoh Arena, Coventry
Energy efficiency and sustainability are now at the top of legislative and boardroom agendas alike. To answer the toughest questions facing organisations today, Siemens Industry, the leading worldwide supplier of manufacturing, transportation, building and lighting technologies, is hosting 'Answers for the Environment'. This free exhibition and conference will take place on 29 - 30 June at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Siemens Water Technologies will be launching the new SFC BA low cost chlorine analyser and introduce their Proactive Infrastructure Management (PIM) solution at this event. The SFC BA is the newest analyser in the Siemens portfolio, providing accurate and reliable performance whilst lowering your total cost of ownership. The PIM solution allows for precise measurement of a variety of water parameters within the water distribution network, allowing for a proactive approach to network monitoring.
The device fits to an existing fire hydrant and allows data to be quickly accessed. To hear more about this there will be a seminar on the 29th June at 4pm to provide further information. The exhibition will also feature the full and expanded range of Siemens Water Technologies products for water and wastewater treatment, with a variety of experts to discuss your individual requirements.
The two-day conference programme will also include practical seminars on technology, best practice and emerging trends in the areas of energy and environmental policy; energy efficiency in manufacturing and industry; sustainable building infrastructure; and low carbon transport. Visitors can select from over 20 sessions featuring leading experts from Siemens and eminent speakers from industry, the public sector, academia and other prominent organisations.
Highlights from the conference include a presentation from the Economist Intelligence Unit on The European Green Cities Index. This unique research, first presented at the recent UNFCC summit in Copenhagen, provides a ranking of Europe's 30 major cities including London, in terms of their relative environmental impact across eight key categories, from energy and CO2 emissions to water and waste.
In addition, Professor Ian Fells, Founder chairman of the New and Renewable Energy Centre and Emeritus Professor of Energy Conversion at The University of Newcastle, will be providing a post-Copenhagen review of energy and environmental policy. This will be followed by a panel debate moderated by Tom Idle, editor of Sustainable Business. Full details of the conference programme can be found at www.siemens.co.uk/afe.
The contribution cities make to climate change will be tackled in the Sustainable Cities exhibition. Although major urban areas cover only one percent of the planet's surface, they consume roughly 75 percent of the world's produced energy and emit about 80 percent of the gases that are harmful to the climate. Buildings alone account for 40 per cent of all UK emissions and each home in the UK creates enough CO2 in a year to fill a hot air balloon (around 5.5 tonnes).
With increasing trends towards urbanisation, cities need sustainable infrastructure, transportation and policies that are compatible with the environment. Siemens will demonstrate how it provides answers to these urban challenges with technologies for rail and road travel, greener buildings, low energy LED lighting, water and waste as well as safety and security.
Continuing the theme of energy, water and waste, the Answers for Industry exhibition will feature innovative automation and drive solutions for more efficient use of energy, environmental technology for ensuring a reliable water supply, as well as flue gas analytics for monitoring industrial emissions.
Investment in these technologies to become more operationally efficient brings a rapid return on investment for most companies, ensuring profitability alongside environmental responsibility. A master class in exploiting 'green' financing opportunities will demonstrate how energy efficient solutions can, in many cases, be implemented without capital cost.
'Answers for the Environment', hosted by Siemens Industry Sector, will also offer extensive networking opportunities with Siemens product managers and technology experts, solution partners, distributors, and senior executives. There is no cost to attend this event, but registration is required at www.siemens.co.uk/afe
