This Siemens Hydronic Flow Optimization video makes a strong case for using Siemens’ PICV in conjunction with their BT300 VFD series for maximum occupant comfort and energy savings by assuring accurate flow changes are made when needed.
Siemens’ Hydronic Flow Optimization: How to Maximize Hydronic System Efficiency: About 41% of our worldwide energy is consumed in buildings, and 41% of that is used by HVAC and hydronic systems. Learn how commercial buildings use hydronic systems and how Siemens’ innovative variable frequency drives and pressure independent control valves reduce hydronic systems’ power and energy needs to dynamically control flow and optimize these systems in new or existing buildings.
This week, we were honored to present and compete at Building Technologies Innovation Open 2018 as one of their finalist teams. The BT Innovation Open is an event organized by Siemens and designed to foster innovation for their building technology division. As a Siemens company, J2 Innovations participated by contributing on one of the innovation teams. Out of 60 applications, our team was selected as one of eight finalists!
This was a unique opportunity for engineers, developers, and project managers to get in front of business leaders in order to pitch their big idea. The format was modeled after Shark Tank, with the preparation, intensity, and excitement that goes along with refining your presentation down to just five minutes.
Through the experience, new bonds were created, new skills were developed, and everyone gained a different perspective outside of their normal roles. It was fun to hear so many innovative ideas within the intelligent building space. We hope to see them all come to fruition in future products and services.
“We are proud to have an amazing pool of BT team members that contribute to the growth of our business with their innovative ideas.” – David Hopping, Siemens Building Technologies Americas

We have been talking about Siemens’ acquisition of Comfy for a while. We have wondered just what the two companies will create. In this video we get clarity on how Siemens and Comfy will work together to create “perfect places” and perfect environments for people who inhabit smart commercial buildings. Eike-Oliver Steffen, the Head of Solutions and Services Portfolio Siemens Building Technologies, and Andrew Krioukou, CEO and Co Founder of Comfy, discuss their shared vision in this enlightening video.
With the aquistion of Comfy and J2 Innovations it is clear that Siemens has been paying attention to the smart buildings yearning for more interactive buildings and the 3-30-300 dollar metric that the smart building controls industry is trying to manifest. Well done Siemens!
