MNRE Scheme on “Energy Efficient Solar/ Green Buildings

A building which can function using an optimum amount of energy, consume less water, conserve natural resources, generate less waste and create spaces for healthy and comfortable living, as compared to conventional buildings, is a green building.

Conventional methods of building use tremendous quantities of material, many of them non-renewable and toxic, and pay little attention to the impact the building has on the environment. Green buildings not only reduce these impacts but are also healthier and consume less energy saving money in the long run.
Green building design is a practical and climate conscious approach to building design. Various factors, like geographical location, prevailing climatic conditions, use of locally available and low embodied energy materials and design parameters relevant to the type of usage of the building are normally taken into consideration. Such an approach ensures minimum harm to the environment, while constructing and using the building.

A green building uses minimum amount of energy, consumes less water, conserves natural resources, generates less waste and creates space for healthy and comfortable living.

When a number of green buildings are located in proximity, they would create a green zone, providing much healthier environment and minimise heat-island effect. The ultimate aim will then be to create many such areas, which would help the towns and cities and therefore the nation in reducing total energy requirement and also the overall global carbon footprint.

A number of experts/architects are presently involved in the country in practicing energy efficient solar buildings. Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) have introduced Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) which includes energy efficient design features. National Building Codes have also been developed by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) which incorporates some of the concepts of energy efficient solar buildings. Sufficient literature/ publications are also available for design of such buildings. The BIS has prepared a chapter on Sustainability as a part of National Building Code to promote Green Building construction in the Country.
