Optimize Energy Consumption
Energy efficiency continues to be an urgent priority for cities. City streetlights can consume 40-50% of a city’s energy. To cope with continued urban growth, cities must find new ways to improve urban energy efficiency through proactive energy management, increased renewable adoption and reduced carbon footprint.
TCS’ Intelligent Energy software solution, built on the Intelligent Urban Exchange (IUX) foundation, is designed to help cities use less energy while supporting public safety goals. IoT and machine-learning capabilities, combined with industry-specific analytical models, create city and building-specific solutions that are capable of automated energy optimization in real-time.
The TCS Advantage
Get real-time insights
IUX Intelligent Energy collects and analyzes real-time and historical data, from IoT and sensors to deliver real-time performance monitoring and analysis of streetlight efficiency. It benchmarks performance against industry standards to identify areas of improvement and underperforming assets.
Get into action
IUX Intelligent Energy delivers recommended actions using a unique optimization model and a proprietary real-time edge analytics agent that communicates with existing systems. Pre-built energy data models help identify optimal operation. Optimized schedules adapt to a city’s priorities, such as maximum energy savings, minimized consumption, carbon reduction, etc.
Get ready for the future
Plug-and-play integration features make it easy to integrate with existing streetlight infrastructure through the energy-specific data model. The underlying IUX City Data Platform allows cities and partners to rapidly and easily bring in their own PMML analytics models to support additional use cases with data pipeline, model development and multi-language support for UFT-8 based languages.
IUX Intelligent Energy
Many cities have updated some of their streetlights with LED fixtures and are now looking for solutions which will reduce the time period for recovering the capex investments. Our solution can provide additional savings of up to 15-25% over and above the savings from transitioning to LED – leading to faster ROI.
IUX Intelligence Energy adaptive streetlight optimization collects and analyzes real-time and historical data from sensors, infrastructure and other IoT sources (such as weather, crime, outage, traffic and pedestrian data) for real-time performance monitoring and analysis of streetlight efficiency. The Dashboard has drill down and analysis functionality to analyze the cause of high energy consumption. It helps pinpoint areas of improvement and quickly identifies streetlights that are underperforming across multiple brands and types of deployed streetlights. Cities and partners can rapidly and easily build additional use cases using IUX Intelligent Energy.
