Abstract

Growing population, urbanisation, consumption of energy and building construction are directly proportional to each other. Urban expansion scale in India is enormous and this has enhanced building construction sector in many folds, resulting into tremendous pressure on natural environment. Urbanisation in India is less advanced than many other countries. This shows lot of opportunities to change ourselves from energy intensive and resource intensive users to smart and efficient energy users. Such energy and resource efficient infrastructure development will lead towards green buildings. Green building promotion has already begun in India. This work presents authors understandings and learnings about India’s green building initiatives, aspects of green building and the need of green buildings in connection with future cities.

Keywords: Green building, Energy, resource, Environment
