Wolfgang Frey at the BT Management Meeting 2015 by Siemens

Wolfgang Frey was granted the honor at this year’s management meeting of giving a lecture on the Smart Green Tower. The latest Siemens technology is also being implemented in this flagship project, that is being built at the end of 2016 for the first time in Freiburg.

Around 160 top Siemens managers from regions around the world (Germany, Europe, America, Asia and Australia) and the headquarters come together annually at the BT management meeting in order to discuss the strategic orientation. A major focus is sustainable urban development (“Sustainable Cities Initiative”), which is reflected inter alia in the form of the event building “Crystal” in London.
