Bangalore: India's leading IT services provider HCL Technologies will partner with US-based GridPoint to develop software for smart energy solutions, the company said late on Monday.
"As part of the multi-year deal, we will enhance GridPoint's software solutions to help accelerate the pace of delivering new capabilities to the market," HCL vice-president Rajeev Swahney said in a statement.
The acceleration will help GridPoint meet the increased demand for smart energy solutions across its product portfolio, including both utility and enterprise solutions.
