1. How to design safe, reliable fire pump power service

As with all life safety systems, maintaining power to the key elements of a building in the event of an emergency is vital to the safety of the building and its occupants. For buildings that do not have an adequate supply pressure from the incoming water source, the fire pump is critical in that protection. 

2. Consulting-Specifying Engineer 2016 Product of the Year finalists

Read about the four finalists in the Emergency, Onsite, Standby Power category for the Consulting-Specifying Engineer 2016 Product of the Year program.

3. Designing generator systems

When designing generator systems, engineers must ensure that the generators and the building electrical systems they support are appropriate for the application. Many questions must be addressed before starting the generator system design. 

4. Siemens introduces digital services for energy

With advanced analytics, Big Data is being transformed into smart data, revolutionizing business models across all industries, including energy. As this digital revolution magnifies, Siemens is driving pioneering new digital services and expanding its current service solutions for its global customers.
