About the Conference:

To create awareness for building sector practitioners; architects and planners including consultants and academic institution regarding design and Implementation of Energy Efficient Solar Buildings with integration of renewable sources of energy in built environment – case studies to demonstrate integration of solar photovoltaic; solar thermal and solar passive technologies into developing sustainable habitat;

Learn about solar active and passive architecture and how building industry offers significant energy saving potential and initiatives which are now being made to construct Green Buildings all over the country and resulting into significant savings of conventional energy;

Gain insight into:

a) Integration of solar design elements into solar cities master plan; 

b) How real estate and constructions industry is integrating the green building principles & concept with emphasis on the renewable energy application; and 

c) How green buildings are supported by the Ministry through a combination of promotional incentives.

d) National Housing Bank – Its financing schemes for Sustainable Habitat.

Energy efficient solar buildings are constructed based on the techniques of solar passive design with a view to provide comfortable living and working conditions, both in winter and in summer.  These buildings can be integrated with renewable energy and energy conservation devices and systems and can save over 30 to 40 % of conventional energy that is used for lighting, air conditioning (HVAC).  Finding the concept of solar buildings useful, the state governments of Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Nagaland have already made it mandatory to construct all new buildings in government & public sectors on this concept.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has been implementing a Scheme on “Energy Efficient Solar/Green Buildings” which aims to promote the widespread construction of energy efficient solar/green buildings in the country through a combination of financial and promotional incentives. 

However, the design of energy efficient solar homes/buildings depends on climate, solar path and intensity, humidity, wind flow, and ambient temperature of a particular place. Design parameters of homes/buildings, therefore, vary with different climatic zones of the country. 

Efforts are now being made to construct Green Buildings all over the country which not only take care of energy conservation but also look into water and waste management, environmental impact, minimum destruction of natural resources and various other aspects in an integrated way. 

The Ministry aims to promote the green building principles & concept with emphasis on the renewable energy application in the green buildings among the stakeholders through a combination of promotional incentives and support in the country.
