Abstract

To reduce the gap between demand and supply of energy of buildings in India, it is important that policies are framed to provide standards and road map for implementing net zero buildings in India.This can be achieved by methodologies that involve climate analysis, bioclimatic architectural design and selection of materials, innovative system design for air conditioning and lighting. The result of these methodologies would be reduction in energy demand which is met by renewable resources.
