Green Initiative at IITK 46 th meeting (07.01.2013) of IITs Council decided to establish a Green Cell. MHRD vide its guidelines as per letter DO No. 1-11/2013-TS I (Sectt.) dated 05.06.2013) advised IIT Kanpur to implement. Theme Workshop on Green Policy at IITK (Open House) was held on 07.10.2013.

Environmental Advisory Committee It shall be the primary policy making body regarding environmental issues inside the campus The EAC will be responsible in implementing the Green Policy of MHRD The EAC will represent the viewpoints of all stakeholders, both inside and outside the campus The EAC will be headed by the Director and SE(IWD) shall be its convener The EAC will normally meet once or twice a semester and formulate the broad agenda for the green initiatives to be pursued in the institute

Green Cell Shall gather the initial baseline data regarding various environmental parameters in IIT Kanpur campus and update/maintain this data on an ongoing basis Shall offer strategic input to the EAC regarding environmental initiatives to be adopted Offer advice to the IWD regarding environmental initiatives to be adopted Monitor the effectiveness of the adopted environmental initiatives
Electricity consumption and air conditioning Sanctioned load : 8.5 MVa Peak load: 7.8 MVa With the proposed construction, the peak is likely to touch 13 MVa. Cost to institute will be about 40 crores / yr (present tariff, present bill is about 25 crore) Air-conditioning load is about 6000 tonnes, which is likely to go to 8000 t !!
Water as a resource 100% dependence on ground water Surface water (Ganga water) is likely to reach campus in a few months Plan to go for hybrid consumption, and depending on the quality and reliability of the supply, the dependence on ground water to be reduced.
POLICY ISSUES: 1.Open ground on campus: at least 70% (70-30 policy) 2.Space audit – both open + occupied areas 3.Semi-perforated parking lots – open space 4.25% of campus be declared and developed as ‘forests’ (pristine state) 5.Allow passage to neighboring villages and population (peaceful co-existence) 6.Concerns and issues (OPEN HOUSE): forest, wet lands, waste, recycling, safety, buildings, CO 2 emission, biomass, rain water, animals, paper less office policy (senate), lighting, refrigeration, ventilation, gardening, roof treatment, traffic control 7.GIS mapping and comparison with Master Plan 8.Make campus ‘physically challenged friendly’
Identification of green field sites for development Re-densification of existing development Redevelopment of older buildings Refurbishment / renovation of existing buildings Space and energy audit of buildings/campus – Internal and External audit Roadmap: Green Policy/Office = EAC and GCell Baseline data collection, documentation, dissemination/reporting – Website Policy on flora and fauna, water, energy, waste, rain, effluent, infrastructure augmentation New technology of construction, monitoring, auditing, maintenance, power saving (sensors) MOOC, Website, Books on birds, animals, vegetation
