MANCHESTER, England, May 5, 2010 - Energy efficiency and sustainability are now at the top of legislative
and boardroom agendas alike. To answer the toughest questions facing
organisations today, Siemens Industry, the leading worldwide supplier of
manufacturing, transportation, building and lighting technology, is hosting
'Answers for the Environment'. This free exhibition and conference will take
place on 29-30 June at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Registration at is now open.

The two-day conference programme will include practical seminars on
technology, best practice and emerging trends in the areas of energy and
environmental policy; energy efficiency in manufacturing and industry;
sustainable building infrastructure; and low carbon transport. Visitors can
select from over 20 sessions featuring leading experts from Siemens and
eminent speakers from industry, the public sector, academia and other
prominent organisations.

Highlights from the conference include a presentation from the Economist
Intelligence Unit on The European Green Cities Index. This unique research,
first presented at the recent UNFCC summit in Copenhagen, provides a ranking
of Europe's 30 major cities including London, in terms of their relative
environmental impact across eight key categories, from energy and CO2
emissions to water and waste.

In addition, Professor Ian Fells, Founder chairman of the New and
Renewable Energy Centre and Emeritus Professor of Energy Conversion at The
University of Newcastle, will be providing a post-Copenhagen review of energy
and environmental policy. This will be followed by a panel debate moderated
by Tom Idle, editor of Sustainable Business magazine. Full details of the
conference programme can be found at

The contribution cities make to climate change will be tackled in the
Sustainable Cities exhibition. Although major urban areas cover only one
percent of the planet's surface, they consume roughly 75 percent of the
world's produced energy and emit about 80 percent of the gases that are
harmful to the climate. With increasing trends towards urbanisation, cities
face a daunting challenge to develop sustainable infrastructure,
transportation and policies. Siemens will demonstrate how, through its
extensive range of products, solutions and services, it provides answers to
these urban challenges in the areas of transport, buildings, lighting, water
and waste as well as safety and security.

Continuing the theme of energy, water and waste, the Answers for Industry
exhibition will feature innovative automation and drive solutions for more
efficient use of energy, environmental technology for ensuring a reliable
water supply, as well as flue gas analytics for monitoring industrial
emissions. Investment in these technologies to become more operationally
efficient brings a rapid return on investment for most companies, ensuring
profitability alongside environmental responsibility. A master class in
exploiting 'green' financing opportunities will also demonstrate how energy
efficient solutions can, in many cases, be implemented without capital cost.

The 'Answers for the Environment' event, hosted by Siemens Industry
Sector, will also offer extensive networking opportunities with Siemens
product managers and technology experts, solution partners, distributors, and
senior executives. There is no cost to attend this event, but registration is
required at
