Green Building Congress 2013
HighLights
 

·       The concept of `Green’ should reach every nook & corner of the country and every construction should be designed Green, said Dr. K. Rosaiah, His Excellency The Governor of Tamil Nadu on 24 October, 2014.

``Green should become a way of life’’, he underlined at Green Building Congress 2013, International Conference & Exhibition on Green Buildings, organised by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) of CII.

``The next 10 years will be the decade of integrated sustainable built structures with the upspring of large integrated townships, satellite cities, gated communities, and campuses with multiple buildings, Dr Rosaiah said.

Reducing environmental impact and adopting- environment friendly construction practices are the need of the hour to address the climatic changes, he said.

·     Mr Jamshyd N. Godrej, Chairman, CII – Godrej GBC, said the most important aspect of the Green building movement in India is that it is a part of larger aspects of sustainability.  He added that the solution ahead is not a choice between sustainability or development, rather sustainability and development. 

·   Dr Prem C Jain, Chairman, IGBC informed that IGBC has inked an MoU with the National Housing Bank for special concessions for homes going green. He said that already there were over 600 Million sq ft of Green homes and the footprint will multiply manifold, he added.

Dr Jain informed that, today India has over 2,235 IGBC registered green building projects with a total area of 1.65 Billion sq.ft, making India one of the top three countries with high footprint.

·       The focus on Renewable Energy and Green Buildings has given prominence to the thought that renewable energy has to be an integral part of a building design. The Tamil Nadu Solar Policy of 2012 gave a major impetus to solar roof tops, said Mr Sudeep Jain, IAS, Chairman and Managing Director of Tamil Nadu Energy Development Agency.

Addressing a Special Session on `Renewable Energy in Green Buildings’ at Green Building Congress 2013’, organised by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) of CII, he said that all Government buildings, all Government street light installations and water supply installations have necessarily move to solar and there had been significant progress in all these areas, Mr Jain said.

·       Dr Arun Tripathi, Director, Ministry of New & Renewable Energy, Government of India, said that the design of a new house or building should be in such way that all available sources of energy from nature could be effectively harnessed.  As the building sector consumes a major share of the energy produced in the country, adoption of the renewable energy would go a long way in reducing the dependence on fossil fuels, said, Dr Tripathi.

He said that the residential sector could use solar water heaters, and solar roof top grid- connected power generation systems. Even the kitchen waste could be converted to biogas and used for cooking or generation of electricity.

Across the renewable energy systems, Subsidy or Central financial assistance, upto 30% was available and this should make installation of renewable energy systems in buildings viable, Dr Tripathi said.

In order to promote the use of renewable energy, MNRE has special schemes for the development of green buildings in the country, he said. They include financial  assistance for  architects, engineers,  building designers and others for awareness creation among various stakeholders;  awards to the  urban local bodies for promoting renewable energy in the building sector and for issuing notifications  or by-laws for the promotion of  solar power in new buildings;  awards for green buildings having maximum renewable energy installations; incentives for architects and  design consultants; and  for the development web-based tools, short films and literature on green buildings.

·      Mr Dinesh Kumar Goyal, IAS, Principal Secretary, Horticulture Department, Government of Rajasthan, said the large-scale solar water pumping system in Rajasthan has been changing the rural landscape of the State.  The annual target of this programme, started three years ago, has now scaled upto 10,000 pumping systems a year, he added.

·      Dr Prem C Jain, Chairman, IGBC, said we should make the maximum use of the several Government schemes for resident’s welfare associations and housing societies to promote renewable energy. 

·    Mr K Krishnan, Member- RE Council, CII-Godrej GBC , said that the  RE Council is leading two important programmes in the country., viz. Smart Power for Environmentally Sound Economic Development (SPEED) and The Green Power Market Development Group – India.

·        Mr K E Raghunathan, Member, RE Council, CII-Godrej GBC, delivered the concluding remarks.
