Energy Modelling of an Indian Building

Energy Modelling in India is slowly catching on. Architects are slowly and steadily realizing the benefits which can be derived through Energy Modelling of Indian Buildings or for that matter any Building.  There are various alternative designs which can be applied in a Building to work out most optimized set of options for Energy conservation.   Continue reading “Energy Modelling of an Indian Building”

Proximity Sensors for Energy Efficient Buildings

Occupancy or Proximity sensors are automatic scheduling devices that detect motion and turn lights on and off accordingly. We all are aware that lighting constitutes about 15% of the total energy requirement of any typical commercial building. There are many energy efficient ways through which lighting can be controlled to get the desired energy savings. People want lights for different purposes.

Energy Efficiency and Smart Cities

Smart Cities have been defined in many ways. The urban urban migration leading to vertical growth in city landscape is a necessity in any smart city. Smart cities lays a lot of emphasis on Green Building and Energy Efficiency. The concept paper on Smart Cities neatly sums up the energy concerns “Good areas to focus energy efficiency measures would be the building material used, the transport system, sewerage and water supply systems, street lighting, air-conditioning systems and energy consumption in buildings.”
