Globally buildings account for 35% of energy use and about 20% of GHG emissions. In India, buildings even consume 40% of all energy and cause 40% of CO2 emissions. Phase 2 of BEEP has shown that 30-45% of energy savings are possible in India with marginal additional costs compared to the current way of constructing. Based on the achievements of the previous phase, Phase 3 will focus on mainstreaming and scaling-up energy efficient and thermally comfortable building design and on promoting the on-site use of renewable energy sources.
75% of the buildings which India will see in 2047 are yet to be built. Use of electricity in buildings is rising at 10-12% annually. Growing demand and affordability for air cooling systems which provide thermal comfort will increase the energy consumption exponentially. As the current construction practices do not sufficiently take energy efficiency considerations into account, buildings become energy guzzlers and cause large amounts of CO2 emissions. In the international climate negotiations, India has committed to reducing the emission intensity of its GDP by 33-35% until 2030 from the 2005 level. This shall partly be achieved through measures in the building sector. India also intends to add 175 GW of renewables by 2022. Government initiatives such as Housing for All, 100 Smart Cities and massive private construction call for adoption of energy efficient measures and use of renewables in buildings.
Energy consumption in new commercial, public and residential buildings in India is reduced through energy-efficient and thermally comfortable design and through the application of renewable energy technologies.
