TCS Intelligent Urban ExchangeTM expedites the sustainability journey
Climate change acceleration is affecting the places we live, the food and water that we consume, and the businesses where we work. Enterprises of all types play a critical role in helping to reduce the environmental, Social, and economic impacts caused by climate change. Businesses need to rethink operating models to reduce their carbon footprint and accelerate sustainability efforts while remaining agile and resilient.
62% of the executives surveyed in a Challenge.org study believe building sustainability into their strategic business plans is necessary for staying competitive in today’s business climate. These environmentally conscious organizations are harnessing the power of big data analytics to help sustainably manage operations while transparently and responsibly delivering customer value.
Precisely monitor emissions across the value chain
“Globally, energy efficiency represents about 40% of the greenhouse gas reduction potential“
TCS Intelligent Urban ExchangeTM enables cities, manufacturers, energy producers, transportation agencies, and logistics companies to connect operational data from multiple sources and deliver incisive insights into carbon emission levels, emission sources, and overall
TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange collects and analyzes data from diverse sources such as business systems, IoT and streaming devices, sensors, and operational processes to build a holistic view of energy usage and carbon footprints. These analytics provide data-driven recommendations that help managers and operators monitor and proactively mitigate emissions across the organization and its partner ecosystem.
Predict carbon emissions for scenario planning
“By 2030, businesses must cut their greenhouse gas emissions globally by 3.7bn metric tons of CO2 equivalent a year or 60% of total emissions to meet Paris Climate Agreement goals “
TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange helps organizations predict and quantify likely ecological impacts of disruption event scenarios. The software allows leaders to run what-if analysis and predict scope 1 and 2 emission levels for various situations. This equips them to knowledgeably tailor business strategies for sustainable and energy compliant operations while also including contingencies for unforeseen events. Powered by AI, ML, and industry-tuned models, TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange provides a powerful tool for performing multi-dimensional simulations that inform key operational
initiatives, minimize environmental impact and ensure regulatory compliance.
Accelerate decarbonization with detailed actionable insights
“Achieving a warming cap scenario of 2 degrees Celsius requires that CO2 emissions decline by about 25% by 2030 “
TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange helps enterprises accelerate their carbon neutrality journeys with an AI-powered, big data platform. This platform in combination with TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange industry models delivers actionable insights based on real-time input and includes use cases that analyze and recommend efficient energy usage, operational processes, and proactive physical asset maintenance. TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange provides insights to help managers determine actions that directly support sustainable operations including efficient asset usage, preventative asset maintenance, and resource allocation based on changing localized needs. These and other emissions-reducing actions can be coordinated from a single dashboard for even greater efficiencies with the TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange Command and Control Center to coordinate and optimize operations.
Reduce energy usage and optimize resources
“Cities can use smart technologies to improve key quality-of-life indicators by 10 to 30% “
“Air pollution from traffic congestion in 83 of the nation's largest urban areas contributes to more than 2,200 premature deaths annually, costing the health system at least $18 billion“
TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange helps campuses, cities and city service providers proactively manage key resources and services. Pre-built intelligent water, streetlights, building and transport use cases are designed to solve real world resource management and conservation challenges such as reducing energy usage, carbon emissions and water waste/loss. These solutions also help optimize capital allocations, asset life cycles, and resource deployments. TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange also delivers real-time monitoring that aids in early detection of incidents giving leaders valuable time to formulate and execute appropriate responses before situations escalate. This timely information saves costs, manpower and time which minimizes situational impacts and preserves precious resources.
Achieve a smooth transition to alternative energy sources
“In the United States renewable sources currently account for just under 17.5% of its energy generation mix, and are expected to increase to 38% by 2050“
As enterprises increase focus on carbon-neutral initiatives, TCS Intelligent Urban Exchange helps them identify potential transition risks and the impact on business operations by providing insights into regulatory guidelines, the local business environment and government policy. The solution helps businesses tailor their new energy mix model by providing actionable intelligence for sustainable activities including planning electric charging stations and forecasting energy demand and generation.
