Siemens pledges $1.5 million to SyracuseCoE partnership

The Building Technologies Division of Siemens Industry Inc. announced a pledge of $1.55 million to the SyracuseCoE as part of a multi-year strategic and collaborative partnership to support research and other initiatives in support of sustainability and energy efficiency in buildings.  The partnership will allow the SyracuseCoE and its regional stakeholders the opportunity to chart a vision and create a roadmap for sustainable building development, execute specific research projects, fund graduate student research in SU's L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science, and engage Siemens' global network of innovation through the participation of Siemens Corporate Research, located in Princeton, NJ.

Siemens will directly support the maintenance and efficient operation of the newly built SyracuseCoE HQ facility from its branch office in Syracuse, which employs 75 people and is joined regionally by another 235 employees serving Central Upstate New York and Vermont. Siemens' building automation system ensures that heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and other building systems perform in harmony.
