Taking renewables further

CIGRE Paris Session 2022, August 28 – September 02, 2022 I Booth 364

Siemens Energy at CIGRE 2022

Honestly, we need to talk! 

The CIGRE is back, and so are we – and honestly, we need to talk. The energy transformation requires all of us to face some uncomfortable truths. We're at CIGRE to discuss them with you. Register here to get your free ticket and visit us at Booth 364. 

Highlights Siemens Energy Transmission

A greener grid needs every detail

Meeting the growing global energy demand while transitioning to a more sustainable world is the biggest challenge for the energy industry. Digitalization, decarbonization, and grid stability are the keys to making the transformation of the energy sector happen. But honestly, we can't do it alone. Our combined efforts are required to successfully drive the transformation to the greener grids of tomorrow. 


At this year’s CIGRE Paris Session we participate intensively with many short contributions in the committee group discussion meeting and showcase how our reliable and innovative products, solutions, and services can help you make a difference and play your role in the energy transition. Our experts will also share their insights in paper presentations, panels, and other contributions. We're looking forward to talking with you, about how we can work together to build a green and digitalized grid for the future.
