Integration of Renewable Energy in Buildings in India
Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC), endeavor to implement a new project complementing the ongoing activities by SDC on Energy Efficiency in India, focusing on the “Integration of Renewable Energy in Buildings”. The broad objective of this project is to design, showcase and monitor building integrated renewable energy technologies suitable to local conditions. The renewable energy technologies will be applied at different types of buildings, which is currently given a major push at the government level in India. The project will contribute to various global processes in the areas of climate change mitigation, urban development, and resource efficiency improvement.
The project also tends to contribute towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy, Goal 8: Decent work and Economic growth, Goal 9: Industry innovation and Infrastructure, Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities and Goal 13: Climate Action and, the Paris Agreement. The broad outcomes expected are primarily: 1) Demonstration of Technological Interventions for Building Integrated Renewable Energy; 2) Development of Research, Monitoring Methods and Manuals to Measure the Performance of Systems; and 3) Built Capacity and Support and Preparation of Knowledge Products.
