ENERGY POSITIVE HABITATS
4-6 February 2015
At Auroville (near Puducherry)
A 3-day Seminar for professional architects
Human habitats today have become centers of energy consumption. By conserving energy with appropriate building design, reducing energy by efficient energy management and producing energy through distributed renewable systems that allow feeding surplus energy into the grid, we can create a shift towards energy-positive habitats. Essential to this movement is the fact that humans have to change their lifestyles to consume according to their needs.
According to the IPCC (2007) report, buildings have the largest
potential of any sector for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, estimated at 29
percent by 2030. Hence, it is vital that building design is re-evaluated.
The concept of Net Zero Energy Buildings (Net ZEBs), the Role of Building Information Modeling in Net ZEBs, Designing of Net ZEBs in hot tropical climates, transition from Net ZEBs to Net ZENs (Net Zero Energy Neighborhood
