Sonepar Extends its Partnership with Siemens Building Products to Accelerate Building Decarbonization in 2023

July 17, 2023

Regulations are forcing building owners to reduce the carbon footprint of their stock. The Energy Performance for Buildings Directive (EPBD) coordinates regulations in all European countries and sets clear targets for achieving climate-neutral building operations by 2050.

Furthermore, in the current context where we’re witnessing soaring energy prices, building owners are seeking transparency, and the constant monitoring of their building’s energy consumption to optimize its performance and achieve energy efficiency.

Sonepar is extending its partnership with Siemens to support customers in creating and renovating buildings to become “smarter”, and more efficient, by introducing HVAC devices and building automation systems into its portfolio.

Whether new or existing buildings, small or large, Sonepar’s customers can choose from a wide range of high-quality sensors, valves, actuators, thermostats, and innovative building automation controllers that enable the evolution of “smart” buildings. The easy-to-install devices ensure regulated on-site energy consumption while creating the perfect environment for building occupants.

The Sonepar-Siemens Guarantee

This expanded portfolio will gradually be rolled out across the Sonepar network, giving customers around the world access to Siemens’ innovative solutions and the best tools to serve the end user.

Sonepar and Siemens’ have been partners for twenty years and it has only accelerated, by developing our offer of Siemens’ Digital Industries and Electrical products and solutions, to now adding this new product portfolio which enables us to further support our customers’ needs,” stated Artur Puzinas, International Market Director, Sonepar International Services. He continued, “Additionally, Siemens is a huge advocate in supporting Sonepar’s sustainability strategy, thereby assisting us in reaching our ambition of promoting best in class sustainable solutions with our Green Offer.”
