Seminar on India's Energy Conservation Building Code by PPNL Scientist Dr Meredydd Evans
11 Feb 2014

Dr Meredydd Evans, an expert on building energy efficiency from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, visited CEEW office last week to give an overview on building energy codes for India. She explained that energy efficient buildings consume 30%-40% less energy in comparison to building constructed conventionally. This puts a greater imperative on India to turn to energy efficient buildings as a vast majority of the building stock in the country is yet to be constructed. She further added that national energy savings depended on factors such as code stringency, level of compliance and adoption of the code.

Several issues related to building codes such as incentives for various stakeholders, roadblocks for developers and implementation barriers were discussed between Dr Meredydd and the CEEW staff.

The case of turning to energy efficient buildings is further strengthened by the fact that buildings use 40% of the world’s energy and 25% of world’s available water.
