Executive Summary Full Text

The main objective of the proposed study is to prepare a comprehensive master plan for developing Faridabad as a solar city.

Developing the city as a solar city requires an integrated urban planning approach, which simultaneously involves reducing reliance on fossil fuels by the application of energy conservation and efficiency measures and by replacing/complementing the conventional energy generation with the renewable energy. Towards this, the initiatives may include the following:
1. Use of passive building concepts in new buildings and rating of new buildings
2. Exploring possibilities of energy conservation
3. Use of renewable energy wherever possible
4. Switching to cleaner energy sources
