Solution for Sustainability operations for Industry

HCLTech's Solution for Sustainability operations (aka NetZero intelligent Operations-NiO) is built to monitor, normalize, compare, reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions in real-time and helps to carbon emission by optimizing the energy consumption

Solution overview:

HCL solution for Sustainable operations named as Net Zero Intelligent Operations (NiO) is HCL's foremost sustainability-focused offering that provides end to end functionalities for monitoring, assessing of energy consumption and helps in reducing the energy consumption and carbon emissions and there by the overall carbon foot print.

The solution brings unique inter-comparability and normalization approach across multiple equipment, processes, and facilities. This solution leverages Azure Digital Twin and Azure ML and Cognitive services to achieve this. It delivers a set of functionalities to optimize energy consumption in a manufacturing environment at the enterprise level and help organizations reduce associated carbon emissions which contribute to net-zero goals.
