BEE - GIZ
2019 - 2020
In 2015, ‘Housing for all by 2022’, a large-scale housing initiative to provide quality affordable housing to the lower economic section by 2022, was launched by the Indian government. As of now, the energy consumption in the affordable housing units is low, but with the increase in income and comfort expectations, that scenario is likely to change. Along with the initiative to provide housing, the government has also taken steps towards reducing energy consumption, one of which was Eco-Niwas Samhita. It was launched with an aim to enhance thermal comfort inside residences as well as reduce external heat gains into the residential buildings. The study developed a single nationwide adaptive thermal comfort model.
