TCS iON aims to transform its 251 centres to solar empowered zones which will help save more than 25% of TCS iON Digital Zone’s total electricity consumption across the country.
TCS iON, a strategic unit of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has started an initiative to convert its TCS iON Digital Zones into clean energy efficient Green Zones.
Under this initiative, TCS iON on Thursday commissioned its first solar power rooftop project at Ram Ganga Vihar in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh.
As part of its clean energy mission, TCS iON aims to transform its 251 owned centres to solar empowered zones which will help in saving more than 25 percent of TCS iON Digital Zone’s total electricity consumption across the country.
TCS iON conducts more than 85 percent of the large-scale and high-stake academic and recruitment examinations in India through its state-of-the-art infrastructure across 625 cities through its ‘Phygital’ platforms.
The TCS iON Digital Zone at Ram Ganga Vihar, Moradabad alone has 532 computing nodes with the capacity of assessing 2000 candidates a day. This zone, which went live on May 10, 2016, has conducted more than 435 exams and assessed 2,25,000 candidates till date.
Clean energy drive
Venguswamy Ramaswamy, Global Head, TCS iON said, “TCS iON took a leap by establishing paperless assessments through our Digital centres, saving approximately 17, 85, 000 trees till date. We now take another step to optimize energy consumption and identify methods to utilize renewable energy for these centres.”
“We will undertake a clean energy drive for every TCS iON Digital Zone to be empowered with cutting edge energy consumption practices and are deploying IoT based monitoring methods under this initiative,” he added.
With this initiative, TCS iON has taken yet another step towards reducing the carbon footprint and move forward in preserving resources for current and future generations.
