International Systems for Rating Green Building Performance

Date : 01/08/2011

Speaker: P C Thomas

The webinar covered the different type of “”green”” building performance rating systems currently available in the world. The presentation related the generic rating types from around the world to their equivalents that in-use, or being developed for India (the ECBC for example), and identified potential gaps in the regulatory regime. The presentation covered the positive impact of energy efficiency that is being created in Australia by a regime of regulation applicable to non-residential buildings, particularly office buildings, large shopping malls and hotels. The seminar concluded with some comments on how such rating systems could be used to encourage the non-residential building sector in India to provide measurable reductions in energy use (and related greenhouse emissions).
