Infosys, the country’s second largest software series firm will most likely set up a 7MW solar plant in its Hyderabad campus. This major step has been taken to create renewable sources that will entirely meet the electricity needs of the next few generations.
This is not the first time that it has made a breakthrough achievement. It reportedly is the first in India to have radiant cooled commercial building, with the biggest comparison of HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) system in the world.
“Daylight and vision panels in the buildings ensure that over 91 per cent of occupied spaces have natural light and all employees have access to views, adding to comfort and productivity,” according to a PTI report.
Appropriate water treatment technologies have been set up to treat the water coming from the sewage treatment plant thus making it suitable for the cooling tower requirements and treated waste water is used for the entire cooling tower at the Hyderabad campus, the company said. The company also said it has planted 15,758 saplings at the Hyderabad campus during fiscal 2015 taking the total number of sapling plantations across campuses to over 4,15,000 in the last seven years.
This initiative has helped the company reduce dependency on freshwater for cooling tower water needs.
