During the financial year 2009-2010, State Bank of India undertook a massive
rollout of Autamed Teller Machines. The Bank was conscious of the need to reduce
the carbon footprints as there were more than 10,000 ATMs to be installed all
across the country. Now, the power situation in India is poor and most areas are
facing power cuts to the tune of eight hours on an average a day. There is an
urgent need save power in the ATM channels.

In all the new ATMs, LCD monitors were deployed in lieu of CRTs. LEDs were used
instead of tube lights/CFL, 5 star EER 3.1 rated ACs were installed. Specially
designed ATMs were developed and installed that consumed low energy and require
no air conditioning environment. Even solar powered ATMs were developed for
rural areas. ATMs were built closer to the customer residences and their
workplaces, so as to reduce their travel time thus saving time and fuel.

This project is expected to help save a whopping 48508500 KWH per annum. This
translates to about Rs 24.25 crores of energy savings per annum. More benefits
include the convenience of 24×7 banking, increased use of e-transactions. Most
other banks in India are also realizing the benefits of adopting green
practices, and are therefore gradually adopting the same site preparation
specifications as used by SBI in this deployment.
