The enormity of the country and pace of the current construction boom mean that India could experience a 700% increase in COemissions and energy consumption in buildings by 2050. With savings potential five times current energy use in buildings, GBPN reviews scenarios for mitigation and surveys current policy and potential for implementation.

A stark challenge faces India. The enormity of the country and pace of the current construction boom mean that India could experience a 700% increase in CO2 emissions and energy consumption in buildings by 2050 (compared to 2005 levels). These levels are unsustainable and threaten India’s energy security. GBPN’s new report “Mitigation Potential from India’s Buildings” offers a rigorous examination of the current political settings relating to energy efficiency in India.  The report recommends policy options that are available to the Indian government and all stakeholders to prevent the enormity of the predicted energy growth in India's building sector from becoming a reality.

The GBPN has researched 25 best-practice building energy efficiency codes from around the world, analysing the content of these codes in terms of best-practice elements and comparing how the implementation of these elements compares across codes. The outcome of the research entitled “A Comparative Analysis of Building Energy Efficiency Policies for New Buildings” provides the first objective criteria for comparing best practice approaches to energy efficiency building codes (residential and commercial). Through this report, the GBPN aims to assist decision-makers to understand the mechanisms behind dynamic building codes and strengthen the future design of dynamic policies taking implementation and evaluation into consideration.
