SEATTLE | MUMBAI, February 10, 2022: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) now offers its suite of sustainability solutions consisting of TCS Clever Energy™, Intelligent Power Plant (IP2™) and TCS Envirozone™ on Microsoft’s Azure IoT platform to help organizations gain insights into energy usage and reduce waste and emissions to accelerate towards their net-zero goals.
The award-winning TCS Clever Energy platform leverages IoT, AI, machine learning, and cloud to help organizations understand intricate energy performance factors, enabling them to become more sustainable and empowering leaders to make informed decisions without compromising business needs.
The Clever Energy platform helps reduce energy and utilities consumption and decrease carbon emissions while saving energy costs in commercial and office buildings, retail stores, warehouses, and factories. Developed on Microsoft Azure IoT PaaS services, TCS Clever Energy addresses key functions like heating and cooling, process energy optimization, demand response, intelligent tariff management, emission management and sustainability compliances with integration to sensors, meters, and assets across the organization.
TCS Clever Energy is helping a leading North American pharmacy retailer to reduce emissions by 26% across thousands of its stores. At a Middle East-based retailer, TCS Clever Energy is at work across 1,300 stores, driving their CO2 reduction by 25,000 tons. This solution is the foundation on which many TCS customers are driving sustainability goals, scaling quickly to multiple assets and buildings utilizing the Azure Cloud platform services.

IP2 combines AI, IoT, and digital twin technologies to support critical power plants to enhance reliability, cut emissions and reduce operating costs by 2-3%.
