Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur Presentation at the India International Centre New Delhi 17 th May 2010
Initial constraints Goals Of GEOGRAPHY: Barren, hot desert Landscaping, enhanced bio-diversity Green, regenerative campus, sustainable buildings, 24/7 working environment Of WATER: Low ground water table, low monsoon Rainwater harvesting, watersheds, recycling Smart water networks with minimal waste Of ENERGY: Poor grid supply Renewables based, smart grids Smart meters and self-healing power network with embedded renewables 1st Batch Graduation from IITJ Campus in March 2012 ! Solutions
: WE WOULD LIKE TO BUILD OUR CAMPUS AS A LIVING LABORATORY Demonstrate use of: Local materials Natural illumination Urban planning Sustainable design Integration of renewables Wireless sensor networks while walking around on campus
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to the rest of the Universe -John Muir, Founder of the Sierra Club, in 1911
IITJodhpur as an eco-village Water Electricity Transportation (Urban Infrastructure) Entrepreneurs, Pioneers, Technology Experts Net Energy=(-ve) Net Water=(-ve) Net Waste=(+ve) Net Energy=0 Net Water=0 Net Waste=0 Campus (Value creation from Natural resource base) ICT Technology solutions for health, transportation, energy Campus with zero carbon footprint
IITJ as eco-village Planning strategies through a methodology that promotes sustainable objectives Participation of local agents with an influence in the region Integrated approach that gives priority to sustainability
Study for IITJ as eco-village 3 attributes of eco-village 3 ideas for soil regeneration & de-desertification 3 ideas for conservation of natural resources 3 examples (at large-scale) of eco-villages
Study for IITJ design 3 reasons for Master Plan vs. Urban Design Scheme (or vice versa) Territorial and spatial planning. Land use plan. (Agriculture will also provide biomass for electricity co-generation) 3 steps before Master Plan/Urban Design 3 priorities 3 reasons for horizontal vs. vertical building (or vice versa) 3 ways to provide world-class living conditions 3 reasons for over vs. underground construction (or vice versa)
Measurement of greenness How do we quantify progress in greening the site? Measurement of water table levels? Measurement of enhanced biodiversity? Change in atmospheric composition? Change in soil profile? Measurement of green cover?
Campus Communities Design Scheme must address needs of: Youngsters vs. older members of community Men vs. women Residents vs. Institute Servants/service providers Surrounding villages and communities
Technology For connectivity: Electricity, data, voice Transportation For waste treatment For water regeneration, conservation & recycling For temperature management For disaster, emergency & fire management All systems should incorporate sensor networks for managing data to enhance efficiency
Electricity Energy harvesting Smart grids (dc and ac both) Supply-side and demand-side management for optimal efficiency in various services Integration of renewables Use of renewables for cooling Terrace top solar arrays?
Transportation Of people, as well as materials Discourage motorised transport, encourage bicycle/pedestrian traffic Movement not more than 5-7 min walk, 10 min bicycle ride Narrow, well-shaded connecting roads Pedestrian and bicycle road maps
Temperature/Lighting Air-conditioning of labs and facilities using passive methods Use of various types of solar-based cooling Hot water for kitchen and bathrooms using renewables Productive use of natural thermal gradient Nozzle effects for cooling Underground tunnels Solar wells for underground illumination
Some of the facilities required: Education: Primary-secondary-higher education Centres of Excellence: Masters and Ph.D program Classes, lecture halls, tutorial complexes Labs Workshops Research Facilities Library Computing Facilities Residences, hostels, messes Smart rooms e-class rooms
contd… Sports: open grounds, stadia, swimming pools Auditorium, open-air facilities: music, art, heritage, culture Public Health: Infirmary and hospital Social System : Residences, servant quarters, shopping centre, clubs Banks, ATMs Post office Security Transportation Electrical substation Telephones Special facilities for physically challenged
Some supporting activities Agricultural Horticulture Forestation Flowers Industrial and Economic Solar park Science City Electricity generation through renewables: biomass etc. Green products
Neighbourhood Boundary Walls Impact of water, Energy and Waste on Campus
Future at IITJ 2000 to 20,000 students in the next 20 years Green campus Surplus water No electricity drawn from grid
Biodiversity Can we attract birds on campus? Can we grow medicinal plants? Landscape with desert plants Create hills to fight sand storms? Biological growth of campus Creating water bodies on campus? Sustainability measurements
Outcome of Workshop How do we plan in order to achieve sustainable development, bearing in mind the heritage of the area? 3 steps to move forward IITJ definition of eco-village Models (Boot, PPP etc) What have we missed? What else needs to be added?
Finally… IITJ gratefully acknowledges the contribution of Mr Mohan Rao and Mr K Balakrishnan Disclaimer: This presentation is meant only as a representation of the possibilities for the purposes of brainstorming. It is not a final document or scheme.
