The Ministry of Environment and Forests of India supports this project as it addresses two important objectives of the Indian Government: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing Energy Efficiency.
Lets avoid at least ten new coal fired power plants by increasing the energy efficiency of future buildings !
The current building stock is a third of what we’ll have in 2030
Upper middle class households in India today do not have another choice than to live in energy inefficient buildings, making their carbon footprint equivalent to households in Europe and the US.
Measurement and verification of building’s energy performances is the key, otherwise energy efficiency might only on be on paper.
For the time being, most people think green buildings are important, but it’s not an urgent issue, It’s up to us architects to change this!
Accept our heartiest congratulations on conducting such a wonderful program disseminating quality information and also educating our young generation
Buyers of cars or electric appliances receive user manuals but buyers or renters of flats shouldn’t receive energy efficiency manuals ?
I have learned of green buildings but I had never felt it’s importance, this workshop has really been an eye opener
It has been a very good exposure for students in engineering to see what’s happening in the building design side, especially cooling technology because that’s where most of our energy is going. Teachings on alternative cooling were great. A huge amount of knowledge was coming in those three days
Carbon design fluency will soon become a core competency for architecture professionals.
This (Fairconditioning) training has become an eye opener for us as faculty professors, to give a different vision to students, a combination of teachings that are not only important for our generation today but for tomorrow too.
Following current trends, by 2030, India will multiply by 10 the area of built space, as compared to 2010 levels. The key to avoid this building boom from unfolding into a national and global catastrophe is to reduce the average EPI of buildings, old and new.
