and optimizes heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting and
many other functions, such as blinds, into one system."

Siemens offers solutions in select vertical markets and tailors them to suit

surveillance systems, fire control and smoke detection systems, and CCTV and
evacuation solutions.

This integrated building technology is unique in the market and helps
customers optimize and save energy throughout the lifecycle of the building,
setting Siemens apart from the competition. In addition to BAS, Siemens offers
energy analysis and customer support through its Advantage Operations Centers
(AOC), wherein its experts continuously monitor building performance for
desired parameters and tune them remotely for optimization.

"The company also offers the option of pre-financing renovation projects
either directly or by working as a technology partner with another financial
institution. In performance contracting, the company may guarantee the defined
energy savings to the customer," noted Sagar. "Such a confident business
model, combined with an integrated solution, has propelled the company to the
top rung in the European BAS market."
