2What is a Green Building? A green building is a building which provide comfortable living and working conditions to its occupants while minimizing its detrimental impact on the environment.
3Difference between Energy Efficient and Green An Energy Efficient building will only conserve energy as compared to other buildingsA Green Building willconserve energy;conserve water;conserve the landscape;reduce waste generation;adopt recycling and reuse of materials; anduse low-energy materials
4Green building design calls for: integrated and coordinated design approach ….in planning, design, construction and management
6Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment Tool to facilitate design, construction, operation of a green building ,and in turn ….measure “greenness” of a building in IndiaWhat gets measured gets managed

9Key highlights of GRIHA Sets out guidelines for design, construction and operationCombination of qualitative and quantitative criteriaSets performances benchmarks for key resources like, energy and waterFacilitates integration of traditional knowledge on architecture with present day technologyIntegrates all relevant Indian codes and standards(e.g National building code 2005, Energy Conservation Building Code 2007, IS codes)Is in complete alignment with government policies and programs (e.g Environmental clearance by the MoEF)9

13Designing a green building! By adopting the integrated design approach such that the client, architect, engineers, and consultants design the building in a coordinated manner with a common goal – sustainability.By optimizing site conditions (trees, water bodies, windflow, orientation, etc.) and retain them to cater to the local thermal / visual comfort requirements of the buildingBy adopting sound architectural practices and taking examples from India’s traditional architectureBy following India’s national codes and standardsBy designing precisely-sized energy systems and not basing them on broad thumb-rules
14Designing a green building! (Continued…) By following regional development plans (such as the UDPFI guidelines, master plans) and local building by-lawsBy adopting locally available construction materials and giving impetus to local arts, crafts, architecture and artisansBy reducing the resource consumption of the building and its inhabitants so that the waste generating there-from is reducedBy adopting energy efficient technologies (EETs) and equipmentBy adopting renewable energy technology (RETs) applications to reduce the demand on conventional energy
15GRIHA-Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment GRIHA attempts to minimize a building’s resource consumption, waste generation, and overall ecological/ environmental impact by consistent with nationally acceptable limits / benchmarks.It does so using the five ‘R’ philosophy of sustainable development, namelyRefuse – to blindly adopt international trends, materials, technologies, products, etc. Specially in areas where local substitutes/equivalents are availableReduce – the dependence on high energy products, systems, processes, etc.Reuse – materials, products, traditional technologies, so as to reduce the costs incurred in designing buildings as well as in operating themRecycle – all possible wastes generated from the building site, during construction, operation and demolitionReinvent – engineering systems, designs, and practices such that India creates global examples that the world can follow rather than us following international examples
16Why should you get your building rates? Some of the benefits of a green design to a building owner, user, and the society as a whole are as follows:Reduced energy consumption without sacrificing the comfort levels (lower operational costs)Reduced water consumptionReduced system sizes (HVAC, transformers, cabling, etc.) for optimal performance at local conditions.Reduced investment (Lifecycle costs)Reduced destruction of natural areas, habitats, and biodiversity, and reduced soil loss from erosion etc.Reduced air and water pollution (with direct health benefits)Limited waste generation due to recycling and reuseReduced pollution loadsIncreased user productivityEnhanced image and marketability
17Passive Solar Architecture Is the design of buildings whose orientation, forms, shading, materials, fenestration(window/door openings) and site planning enable the structure to naturally store thermal energy from the sun and/or cool the structure by shielding it from the sun rays and causing on unassisted air flow.Mankind has been using passive solar majors since time immemorial. The traditional buildings in India bear testimony to it.Passive solar techniques are as varied as architecture itself and depend upon the climatic regions.
18Can buildings adopt traditional design principles and yet appear contemporary?
25Design to reduce conventional energy demand (Based on principles of solar passive design) Conventional ‘adopt international design’ PhenomenaMore buildings are being built out of glass these daysLack of sound design keeps the visual comfort low (high glare conditions, excess heat ingress, etc.)Most occupants keep their curtains closed in glass buildings and use artificial lighting all day long.Thereby adding to the overall energy consumptionGRIHA approachThe design is optimized to allow maximum natural light in, while eliminating glareSound shading strategies ensure no direct solar radiation is allowed into occupied spaces during summers (and vice versa in winters) Also,Appropriate planning that reflects climate responsivenessAdequate day lighting providedOver and under-design of lighting system is avoided
26Climate-responsive design strategies As per the climatic classification of National Building Code-2005, though India has a large variety of climate types, it is predominantly a country with tropical climate. Approximately, 90% of the area has hot- dry, warm-humid, and composite climate. Therefore, climate- responsive buildings, in this context, are designed to avoid the heat gain but at the same time allow adequate daylight into the living space. Some of the passive design strategies adopted to optimize building design that controls heat gain and allows maximum natural light are as follows:Optimum orientation;Internal space arrangement (thermal buffer zone/buffer spaces);Allocation of building openings;Sizing of openings (limitation of window-wall-ratio and skylight-roof-ration);Appropriate shading design (façade shading and fenestration shading); andAdequate daylighting (optimum daylighted area and daylight factor)
27Solar-passive building design addresses indoor thermal comfort as well as visual comfort Reduce energy demand of space-conditioningReduce energy demand of artificial lightingReduction in energy consumption and GHG emission
28Solar Passive Related Criteria in GRIHA The criteria 13 of GRIHA ( i.e. optimize building design to reduce conventional energy demand) addresses integration of solar passive principles in building design. This is a mandatory criterion, which emphasizes on building orientation, use of shading devices, fenestration design, window to wall ratio and achieving day lighting in living spaces.Criterion 4 – Design to include existing site features.Criterion 5 – Reduce hard paving on-site and/or provide shaded hard-paved surfaces.
29Integration of ECBC with GRIHA Criterion 14 of GRIHA (i.e. optimize energy performance of building within a specified comfort limits) requires mandatory compliance with ECBC for projects that fall in the category of ECBC implementation.
30Renewable EnergyThe criteria 18 of GRIHA (i.e. renewable energy utilization) makes it mandatory to meet 1% of project internal lighting and air conditioning connected load (or equivalent) by renewable energy.The Criteria 6 of GRIHA (i.e. enhance outdoor lighting system efficiency and use renewable energy system for meeting outdoor lighting requirement) promotes use of renewable forms of energy to reduce the use of conventional/fossil fuel based energy resources.

43ADaRSH (Association for Development and Research of Sustainable Habitats ADaRSH is an independent society, registered under the Societies Act, 1860 as a platform for interaction on all relevant issues pertaining to sustainable habitats in the Indian context. It was founded jointly by MNRE (Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India) and TERI (The Energy & Resources Institute, New Delhi) along with some of the experts in the fields related to sustainability of built-environment from across the country. ADaRSH promotes and manages GRIHA – The National Rating System (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) as a design and evaluation tool for green buildings and habitats, and administers the rating.
