ZERO ENERGY SPACE Experience the Future of Buildings
Vision A ZERO ENERGY SPACE Experience the Future of Buildings Net Zero building which is energy efficient as well as generates all it’s power needs with PV panels on the rooftop - a Green Building par excellence. The growth of Green Building materials and products has been very encouraging, but awareness needs to improve within the design & construction community. Since most of the green building materials and strategies are different from conventional construction practices it needs efforts to educate people and make them realize that green practices can be incorporated in every building. Reaching out to 250,000 people by 2010 We believe in a holistic approach to education, where industry stakeholders can understand the concepts through “hands – on” approach and are able to see “sustainability” in action. Showcasing a building which actually works without grid connection inspires people. Visitors get more confident about using/applying green products and strategies. The concept is exhibited at the Indian Green Building Congress 2010, Chennai from 6th- 9th October (Asia’s largest Green Building Conference), ET ACEtech, Mumbai, ET ACEtech, Delhi (Asia’s largest Construction related Exhibition). Yes, the Zero Energy Space can do all of that and more. This building is independent of the electricity grid and is powered by solar-energy only. It shows the latest technologies and materials used for construction of energy efficient buildings without compromising on high comfort and healthy indoor environment. The Zero-Energy-Space is on a building awareness tour through India starting it’s way from Chennai to Mumbai and Delhi. With prominent exhibitions like the IGBC Congress and ET ACEtech exhibitions this program will reach out to more then 2.5 lakh people in 2010. Leading by example is the motto for this initiative sponsored by Aluplast Windows, Breezair, Everest Industries, Nippon Paints, Supreme Petrochem & Roca. Can a building work without electricity connection? Can green building design and materials reduce the energy consumption of an air conditioned space by 60% or more? Can the savings be achieved without compromise on indoor quality and performance?
