Building Policy Component

2018 – 2021

Objective:Measures for Energy-Efficient and Thermally Comfortable (EETC) buildings are integrated in the existing regulatory framework at the national and state levels.

Historical evidence from other countries shows that relevant building policies and regulations are required to mainstream EETC buildings and transform the market towards an energy efficient building stock and consequently, related building products and materials. In Switzerland, amendment of building energy norms since the late 1970’s has played the most important role in significantly improving building energy efficiency. These energy norms are periodically amended to be made more stringent, which has also resulted in better and more effective technology, products and energy management. This also has a crucial impact on the education and capacities of building sector professionals. Developing methods at policy level, which allow increasing the thermal comfort as well as reduce the energy for cooling (either by avoiding active cooling or supporting high efficiency hybrid/active cooling systems) is a win-win solution. Most of the solutions proposed will have a positive impact with very marginal or no additional investment costs for the construction.

At the national level, the programme will revise existing regulatory framework for residential buildings, with an emphasis on passive measures. The existing regulatory framework for buildings will also be revised in selected states and cities.

Planned Activities:

  • A national regulatory framework for EETC residential buildings is submitted to the GoI
  • A roadmap for mainstreaming EETC buildings is accepted in 3 selected states; and building regulations at the state and city levels are strengthened with regard to EETC:BEEP III will develop a roadmap for mainstreaming EETC buildings for 3 selected states. Building bye-laws of 4-8 cities in the selected states will be amended to include EETC design features and practices.
  • Capacities at state and city levels are strengthened for roadmap implementation of EETC buildings:The programme will develop the capacities of state and city administration officials, in the selected states and cities, to regulate and facilitate the implementation of EETC buildings.

The “Design Guidelines for Energy-efficient Multi-storey Residential Buildings for Composite and Hot-dry Climates” has been developed under the component-3 of Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP). The design guidelines provide 15 recommendations on energy-efficiency features for consideration at the design stage of multi-storey residential buildings. Listed below are the six sections under which these recommendations are featured in.
 
i. Building massing and spatial configuration (Recommendations 1–3) 
ii. Building envelope (Recommendations 4–6) 
iii. Space cooling (Recommendations 7–10) 
iv. Appliances (Recommendation 11) 
v. Common services (Recommendations 12–14) 
vi. Renewable energy integration (Recommendation 15)
 
The guidelines are aimed at builders, developers, architects and other building-sector professionals involved in the design and construction of multi-storey residential buildings.

Guidelines for Energy-Efficient & Thermally Comfortable Public Buildings in Karnataka

Launch Date20 Sept, 2016 

Venue
Hotel Lalit Ashok, Bengaluru

BEEP has been working with PWD, Karnataka for the past three years on various aspects of energy efficient building design. Several design workshops have been conducted to develop energy-efficient design of specific public buildings, such as, District Court and District Office buildings. This knowledge has now been brought together in the form of a publication, titled “Guidelines for Energy-Efficient and Thermally Comfortable Public Buildings in Karnataka”. The guidelines have been developed keeping in view different climatic regions found in Karnataka and provides a step by step approach to designing efficient buildings. It is hoped that the guidelines will be useful for architects, engineers, building project managers, etc.




The content of the guidelines covers the following topics:
 
i. Integrated design process 
ii. Climate analysis for Karnataka 
iii. Climate responsive design 
iv. Efficient cooling systems 
v. Solar energy integration
