Siemens signs up to Peachtree Corners smart city Curiosity Lab project

Peachtree Corners – one of the first smart cities in the US powered by real-world connected infrastructure and 5G – has revealed that EV charging firm, Siemens, has joined the Curiosity Lab smart city ecosystem to support bringing 5G electrification to America.  Curiosity Lab is a 5G-enabled, living laboratory for startups and established companies to deploy and prove out developing technologies in a real-world testing environment. Siemens charging stations and infrastructure will be installed at Curiosity Lab, leveraging T-Mobile’s 5G network as the company continues to evolve its EV charging infrastructure solutions.  

“With our eMobility R&D headquarters just across the street, we’re thrilled to be supporting Peachtree Corners and joining the Curiosity Lab ecosystem alongside so many great partners whose goals are to bring EV infrastructure to the forefront of cities across the country,” said John DeBoer, head of Siemens eMobility North America. “With our community charging their vehicles each day right where we live and work, this will be a great way to continuously evaluate our charging infrastructure as we collectively seek an electrified future.”  

With both Siemens eMobility R&D hub and the North American Headquarters for Siemens Electrical Products located in Peachtree Corners, Siemens is the city’s largest employer and is actively supporting the community with six EV chargers already deployed. These chargers contribute to Peachtree Corners having the largest EV charging hub outside of Metro Atlanta.  

“As one of the leading smart cities in the United States, we are always looking towards the future,” said Brian Johnson, City Manager of Peachtree Corners. “The electrification of America is well on its way, and here in Peachtree Corners we are proud to be embracing this technology further with Siemens joining our Curiosity Lab ecosystem. As a global leader in this space, we are honored to have had Siemens’ continuous support for our city’s adoption of this technology. Expanding their charging infrastructure at Curiosity Lab only strengthens that ongoing support. Together with Siemens, T-Mobile’s 5G and our real-world environment, we will be able to continue to improve EV infrastructure for a positive impact towards the future of the electrification of America.”
