Siemens to show integrated technologies accelerating decarbonization of buildings

Jun 21, 2022

Highlight: sustainable hydrogen solution for residential boilers
Intelligent, digitalized heat interface unit for multi-family apartment buildings
LMV6 burner management system for medium and high capacity burners boosts efficiency
New function for self-optimizing dynamic valves saves up to 30% energy

At Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) trade show, Siemens Smart Infrastructure will present a completely renewed portfolio designed to accelerate the decarbonization of commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. Under the motto “Transform the Everyday,” Siemens will also display products and solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that make buildings more efficient, digital, connected, and comfortable. MCE will take place from June 28 to July 1 in Milan, Italy.

This year’s highlights from Siemens include a newly developed application for residential boilers that supports operation with hydrogen. It allows OEMs to develop advanced, user-friendly solutions that meet future energy requirements and are ready for the gradual transition to a pure hydrogen (H2) market. This application for residential boilers is part of a comprehensive hydrogen portfolio that supports the European Green Deal, a set of policy initiatives aimed at making the European Union carbon-neutral by 2050.

Greater heating efficiency is also provided by another innovation Siemens is showing at MCE: an intelligent and fully digitalized heat interface unit (HIU) control solution. HIUs are typically installed in multi-family apartment buildings in which a central heating plant provides heating and in some cases hot domestic water to all units. State-of-the-art HIU controls from Siemens allow control and remote metering/billing for multiple zones on an individual apartment level. This increases transparency and efficiency of energy usage. For maximum efficiency, Siemens combines HIU with heat recovery ventilation (HRV). As a result, heating costs can be significantly lowered. Its cloud connectivity ensures full transparency on energy flow and operating status. In addition, the unit supports heating and hot water circuits, and it can be connected to Climatix heat recovery systems.

The new LMV6 burner management system provides a significant boost in efficiency for medium and high capacity burners. This means less fuel is burned for the same amount of energy, compared to other burner management solutions. The control unit (AZL6) redefines the benchmark for HMIs (Human Machine Interface) in the burner business. Its graphical display allows straightforward burner commissioning with clear text information in multiple languages and easy, guided commissioning for fast burner start-up.

With Adaptive Flow Optimization, Siemens is also presenting a new function at the MCE for the Intelligent Valve, the self-optimizing dynamic valve with cloud connection. Adaptive Flow Optimization eliminates pressure fluctuations, ensures stable room temperatures and high comfort, and saves up to 30 percent energy.

The latest development in Climatix technology focuses on renewable heat generation. Thanks to a new, customizable user interface, heat pumps can now be commissioned, operated and maintained quickly and efficiently via mobile app.

In addition to these highlights, Siemens will show a wide range of building automation solutions for controlling and managing cooling, heating, humidity, and CO2, as well as lighting and shading at Booth P41 R42 in Heating Hall 7.
