Under the motto "Make your building more livable," Siemens will show at the light+building trade fair how commercial buildings can be comfortable while also offering economical operation. Among the highlights will be energy services aimed at improving the performance and energy efficiency of buildings. Siemens will introduce its expanded portfolio of services under the name "Navigator powered by Sinalytics."

Navigator powered by Sinalytics is the basis for a number of services which analyze the current performance of a building and optimize it using the insights gained. This includes remote monitoring and maintenance of technical plants, measuring and metering concepts as well as monitoring of energy flows and consumption in the building. Navigator is based on the new Sinalytics platform which consolidates all digital services from Siemens.

Navigator collects building data relating to power, heating, cooling and water consumption as well as air volumes of HVAC plants. Energy engineers aggregate the data and turn it into meaningful reports on energy consumption, costs and emissions. These reports can then be used to make decisions about non-investment measures, such as demand-based building automation adjustments, or investment measures, such as replacing a boiler. Energy management using Navigator thus increases transparency and energy efficiency within the building.

Siemens has expanded its consulting portfolio and will introduce new offerings at light+building to help customers with energy procurement planning and strategy, emission trading and optimization of network charges. These services are also based on Navigator.

"Navigator and our services allow us to turn Big Data into Smart Data. This provides true value for our customers by helping them operate their buildings as energy-efficiently as possible – from energy procurement to continuous compliance with energy standards to technology migration," said Martin Quednau, Advantage Operation Center Director at Siemens AG.
