Occupant perspectives | NZEB at CEPT University

July 23, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Centre for Advanced Research in Building Science and Energy (CARBSE) in CEPT University, Ahmedabad houses some of the world’s most cutting-edge research in energy-efficient building design. At the same time, it’s a living laboratory in itself, operating as a net-zero energy building. As a result, the building provides invaluable lessons in designing, constructing and operating a net-zero energy facility.

Clocking an EPI of 25.4 kWh/ m2/ year in 2018, the building uses a combination of active and passive strategies to first reduce its energy demand, followed by on-site solar energy generation. One of the highlights of this lab is that the cooling can switch between different modes of operation depending on outdoor conditions.  A Smart Building Management System continuously collects and monitors thermal comfort, energy consumption, and environmental data. Using rigorous monitoring, data analysis and integrated controls – the building has been operating at its highest efficiency since the last 5 years.

This webinar  brings on board two foremost members of the CARBSE team- the Exective Director, Prof. Rajan Rawal and Technical Head, Dr. Yash Shukla. Prof. Rawal has pioneered energy-efficient building research and policy in the country for over two decades. Dr. Yash, Technical Head at CARBSE, is recognized for his growing body of research in the field. Together, they bring their expert insights and rich experience of designing, occupying and managing an exemplary Net Zero Energy Building in India.
