National Conference on Green Building & Architecture
Materials, Design, Water & Energy Efficient Technologies & Carbon Credits: Emerging Issues & Concerns

Date : 22nd-23rd August 2008
Venue : India International Centre (IIC), Main Auditorium, Lodhi Road, New Delhi
Organized by : Carbon Minus India (CMI) and Indian Institute of Sustainable Development (IISD), New Delhi
Supported by : Ministry of Urban Development & Ministry of Power, Government of India.

The Building sector has major impacts not only on economic and social life, but also on the Natural and Built environment. Various building activities, such as the design, construction, use, refurbishment and demolition of buildings, directly and indirectly affect the environmental performance of the sector. Conventional Building System is less energy efficient than Green Building System. Against this backdrop, the concept of “Green Building” – reducing the harmful effect on the environment of buildings and construction activities – has been attracting the attention of stakeholders. This can range from using recycled materials carried by low-polluting forms of transport in construction to maximizing energy efficiency in a finished building, for example through improved insulation and solar-powered energy. Green Building & Architecture is therefore, the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings use resources — energy, water, and materials — while reducing building impacts on human health and the environment, through better sitting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal — the complete Building Life Cycle. On the aesthetic side of green architecture or sustainable design is the philosophy of designing a building that is in harmony with the natural features and resources surrounding the site. There are several key steps in designing Sustainable Buildings: specify 'Green' Building Materials” from local sources, reduce loads, optimize systems, and generate on-site renewable energy. Building energy simulation tools provide facility to embedded energy efficiency in buildings by predicting their behavior under given climatic conditions and usage patterns.

The purpose of this conference is to explore ways that educational, governmental and industrial institutions can respond locally to global environmental challenges. The conference will be directed at disseminating concrete proposals and ideas for institutional change – how to compute an organization’s climate footprint, how to upgrade existing buildings and plan new, more environmentally friendly ones, and how to develop institutional commitment for adopting these kinds of changes.

In fact, this is high time, to have climate friendly houses, with affordable prices, which not only emits least Green House Gases (GHGs), at the time of Construction, but also takes care to minimize GHG emission during it’s existence (O&M) and off-set the GHG release. There is a huge possibility of getting state of art Energy and Water Efficient Buildings, with new-age environment friendly Buildings Materials and maximum infusion of Renewable Energy in our Construction Sector, which is responsible for 30-40% of energy consumption at large. By making our Constructions energy and water efficient, we do not only save Energy Consumption, but also save money and attract Carbon Credits, under Kyoto Protocol of UNFCCC; which is a win-win situation. As India is a global Leader in Green House Gas (GHG) emission reduction market creation, and doing excellent in many related fronts, there is an urgent need to create sufficient techno-economical awareness about this sector at large and disseminate the basic information of this highly technical subject in a more simple possible way, into public domain, so that Common mass can take the advantage of this Knowledge.

We at CMI, are few, who are knowledgeable, ahead of others in advanced thinking and after all with right vision, should come out for providing able leadership to this key sector, influencing national development, this unique event, is suppose to converges all of our efforts, to ensure excellent individual as well as societal delivery in the interest of the nation, which is historic and first of it’s kind in India. It is extremely important to show the right direction to present day of Development, to achieve Sustainable Development today, especially when, India is doing remarkably well in international scenario, with a higher and higher GDP growth rate. Our development process also needs to be more and more, greener to ensure a better future to our next generation.
