BLP Selects IBM
By Sumir Singh

Bharat Light and Power (BLP), a leading renewable energy producer in India, has formed a strategic engagement with IBM to drive business growth, enhance revenue and increase operational efficiency. In this 10-year collaboration, BLP will use IBM’s SoftLayer cloud capabilities, built on open standards, as well as IBM analytics and mobile solutions to increase its power generation capacity.

BLP is one of the largest clean energy generation companies in India. It aims to address the sustainable energy challenge by increasing its renewable energy generation capacity to one giga watt (GW) over the next few years. The company focuses on wind, solar, biomass and hydro technologies for power generation and is exploring other advanced technologies such as energy storage, and smart grid to better integrate renewable energy to the grid. BLP also uses its years of expertise in building, owning and operating power plants around the globe to offer pre-development and post commissioning services to wind farm developers, operators, owners, investors and lenders.

“The focus of power generation globally, and especially in India, in the next five years is going to be about operational efficiency and productivity enhancements. This requires an intelligent and innovative collaboration between the power and the IT sector. BLP has ambitious growth plans for providing this service and we needed a strategic partner who understands, and helps us realize, our vision,” said Mr. Balki G. Iyer (pictured above), Chief Development Officer, BLP. “A significant factor in selecting IBM was its rich global experience in the renewable energy sector and scalable technology capabilities that suits our requirement.”

IBM has more than 100 cloud SaaS solutions, 37,000 experts with deep industry knowledge helping clients transform and a network of more than 25 global cloud delivery centers. Since 2007, IBM has invested more than $6 billion in acquisitions to accelerate its cloud initiatives. Most recently IBM acquired SoftLayer with more than 22,000 clients in 140 countries to further build out its IaaS portfolio with an easy and secure on ramp to cloud integrating IBM SmartCloud.
