India Launches Net-Zero Building Portal
The Indian Power Ministry, with the help of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has launched the country’s first Web portal aimed at net-zero energy use in buildings.
The story in The Business Standard says that the portal – www.nzeb.in – provides information about net-zero energy buildings as well as those that are nearly net-zero. Power Secretary Pradeep Kumar Pujari said that the vision was to go beyond measuring performance and to look at broader goals in relation to net-zero operations. He argued for wider use of energy codes in Indian states that do not yet have them in place.
Sara Gutterman, the Co-Founder and CEO of Green Builder Media, wrote in a column at Energy Manager Today that India and China have made “huge strides” in shifting to a sustainable economy, reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality since the COP21 meetings in Paris.
