Infosys and bp, a global integrated energy company, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) under which both companies will work together to develop an integrated Energy as-a-Service (EaaS) offering that will provide end-to-end management of a customers’ energy assets and services.
Together, the companies will explore opportunities using bp’s energy and mobility expertise and Infosys’ digital capabilities to manage energy assets, provide low carbon power, low carbon heating/cooling, and low carbon mobility to campuses, driven by an AI-based digital platform.
bp’s integrated energy offer draws on technologies and businesses in solar and wind together with gas for power, fuels, electric vehicle charging, battery swapping, and advanced mobility solutions.
The integrated EaaS solution aims to enable Infosys campuses to access reliable low carbon energy and mobility options, use energy more efficiently, and to optimize supply and demand across multiple users and assets without having to invest in additional energy infrastructure.
Following a pilot at the Pune campus, the companies intend to extend the offer to other Infosys campuses.
Infosys had signed up for ‘The Climate Pledge,’ committing to achieve net-zero carbon emissions across its businesses by 2040. However, they had achieved carbon neutrality in 2020 – 30 years ahead of the timeline set by the Paris Agreement.
bp aspires to become a net-zero company by 2050 or sooner.
