In yet another effort to drive energy efficiency in its Mysuru campus, Infosys announced the launch of ‘Comfy’, a third party application to monitor and personalize workspace temperature.
With this application, employees can control their workspace temperature as per their comfort using smartphones, laptops, and desktops.
The application works over the building management system and provides instant streams of cool air or warms the space. It also learns from the occupant feedback. Employees act as sensors allowing Comfy to save energy by eliminating over-conditioning and turning off air conditioning in unoccupied spaces.
As part of its sustainability initiatives, Infosys successfully implemented several measures over the last year in its Mysuru campus. There are 273 smart water meters installed in its Mysuru campus, making a total of 472 smart meters across its campuses in the country.
The Mysuru campus also accounts for 464 kW of installed capacity out of the total 9.7 MW of solar PV across campuses, helping the company in building a low carbon future.
Furthermore, the Mysuru campus received a 2 TPD capacity food waste-to-biogas plant of the total 9.25 TPD capacity installed in campuses including Bengaluru, Thiruvanthapuram, Hyderabad, Pune and Bhubaneshwar. The Mysuru campus also witnessed the installation of a composting plant that was a part of the 2.5 TPD capacity of compositing plants installed across various campuses.
Infosys has forged several industry partnerships for sustainability initiatives. Institutions such as Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, are a few among them.
