Project Title United Technologies-TERI Center of Excellence for Energy Efficient Buildings in Indian Cities
Project Code 2014BS10
Project Status Ongoing
Start Date October 2014
Sponsor(s) United Technologies Corporation,Multi-Client
Division Sustainable Habitat

In order to address energy efficiency in existing buildings, United Technologies and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) are coming into a partnership to set up a Centre of Excellence on building energy diagnostics and evaluation for improving energy efficiency in existing buildings. The main objectives of setting up Centre of Excellence include: (i) development of energy use reporting framework for the existing building sector; (ii) evaluation of the existing building energy rating systems (for e.g. BEE star-rating, LEED rating for existing buildings) and to provide input to strengthen/augment the existing systems; (iii) derivation of tool and techniques for energy management; (iv) real time reporting of energy consumption and identification and cost benefit analysis of energy conservation measures; (v) development of Measurement and Verification (M&V) protocol for establishing the energy saving potential of various energy conservation measures; (vi) formulation of design and retrofit guidelines that could be suggested as an addendum to relevant codes and standards; and (vii) development of supportive standards and regulation that will enable market uptake of energy-efficient technologies.
