Partners in research

Forging strong partnerships is a strategic imperative to build a sustainable future for us and for the world. Collaborations with our partners have helped us achieve our goals and venture into new areas of research and experimentation.

As part of our sustainability strategy, we are involved in extensive research and development aimed at finding ways to mitigate the impact of our operations on the environment. We have tied up with premier research institutions across the world to conduct research on energy-efficient building material, green engineering solutions, monitoring systems and renewables. Here's a glimpse into our ongoing research partnerships:


Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), U.S.

Our continuous collaboration with LBNL is focused on several aspects of buildings such as high efficiency data centers, customized comfort solutions, monitoring systems and developing best practice guidelines for buildings. We recently completed implementation of one of our most efficient data centers in Bangalore, with a design PUE of 1.08, using passive cooling technology.


University of California, Berkeley, Center for Built Environment (CBE), U.S.

We have partnered with CBE to conduct research on enhancing employees' comfort, productivity, and experience in our buildings by improving the built environment. This study is currently under way. This is among one of the very few studies conducted globally.


National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), U.S.

We strive to accelerate and scale up the best-in-the-world solar technologies and solutions for expanding the solar market in India. NREL is helping us with methodologies for critical evaluation in several areas such as, comparison of solar technologies, measuring impact of soiling losses and panel temperature on module performance, etc.


Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore

We have partnered with IISc for research on solar PV technologies under the SERIIUS program of Department of Energy (DOE), U.S.


Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay

We have partnered with IITBombay to evaluate different PV technologies and PV module degradation in Indian conditions to enhance generation capacity.


The Institute for Sanitary Engineering and Waste Management (ISAH), Germany

This partnership is enabling us carry out technical evaluation on waste management technologies to help manage our waste scientifically with the best-in-the-world knowledge and expertise. We are carrying out extensive research on solid waste management technologies, sludge treatment technologies, use of bio-filters for odor control in sewage treatment plants, waste characterization and so on.


Saint Gobain

We have partnered with Saint Gobain Research Institute to research and develop efficient building envelope systems - glass, wall materials, acoustic materials, daylight analysis, and monitoring systems to develop solutions for improving energy performance of buildings.



We are working with 3M to evaluate their new technologies that can help in enhancing natural light in office spaces. We are also pursuing research on different technologies for improving light fixture efficiency.



A forum involved in extensive research on solar PV technology in India and USA. It partners with elite research institutes and universities of India and USA along with many core solar industries. Infosys is a respected member of this forum and plans to do many research projects in its association.



Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is an organization composed of engineers, scientists, and students. It conducts international conferences wherein extraordinary research work, duly peer reviewed, is presented. Infosys has presented a research paper in this conference and another is under publication for year 2017.
