Apollo Hospitals, a global leader in healthcare, has teamed up with Smart Joules to launch a significant carbon reduction initiative across 18 of its hospitals in India. This collaboration seeks to reduce carbon emissions by an incredible 2,90,000 tons over the next ten years. The strategy centers on utilizing Smart Joules’ innovative JoulePAYS solution for energy-efficient cooling, heating, ventilation, and automation systems.
This partnership comes at a critical juncture when India is committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2070, a commitment made at COP26. The nation is actively working towards reducing its total projected carbon emissions by a billion tons by 2030, and establishing a 500 GW non-fossil energy capacity.
JoulePAYS, the core of this collaboration, is a ground-breaking pay-as-you-save solution ideal for retrofitting existing buildings and factories. Clients can benefit from significant energy savings at zero investment, as a portion of the savings is shared with Smart Joules. This approach not only supports profitable climate action but also eliminates risks associated with energy efficiency decision-making.
In just four months, Apollo Hospitals has integrated JoulePAYS across its infrastructure, implementing 235 energy conservation measures. As a result, it is anticipated that there will be savings of over 235 million kWh and INR 2 billion by 2030.
Dr. K Hariprasad, President of Apollo Hospitals, emphasized the importance of optimizing energy use without compromising patient care. He expressed hope that this initiative would encourage other healthcare providers to take part in the green revolution.
Arjun P. Gupta, CEO of Smart Joules, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to assisting businesses in achieving sustainable development goals and energy efficiency.
