Building Innovation: Guide for High-Performance Energy-Efficient Buildings in India. Reshma Singh.
For an energy engineer, consultant, technologist, academic, or anyone interested in the buildings sector in India, the explosive growth in energy use and trends in new construction provide a fascinating opportunity for climate change mitigation. In this deck Reshma presents transformative tools, technologies and approaches that can accelerate high-performance next-generation buildings in India. She introduces topics such as- What is a holistic decision framework for a developer-owner’s energy-related investments, what are effective energy targets and performance goals for architects and sustainability managers to pursue, and what types of software tools, building products and policies help enable short and long terms benefits? She offers inventive combinations of building wisdom and technology innovation that have been validated through building energy simulation, case studies and expert opinion.
The deck are based on findings from a five year US-India research program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Indian Government, and can be found in the new book Building Innovation, found at BIT.LY/BUILDINGINNOVATIONGUIDE
