India is an emerging giant with a growing population, an expanding economy, and a quest for an improved quality of life. The U.S. is also one of the largest energy consumers in the world.
The commercial buildings market is experiencing explosive growth. The potential for building energy savings through clean energy technology development is immense.
As two of the world’s largest economies, the United States and India have a special role to play in addressing global energy and environmental sustainability challenges.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) along with U.S. DOE, USAID, etc., and various U.S. Indian research institutes such as CEPT University, MNIT Jaipur and
IIIT-Hyderabad have worked in area of building material testing, fenestration performance, cool roof and code compliance. Collaboration will help both countries significantly in achieving energy savings through a well-coordinated effort to develop and advance clean energy technologies for buildings.
Against this backdrop, IGBC is organizing a One day workshop jointly with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), DOE & CEPT University on Advance Clean Energy Technologies for Buildings on 1 November 2012 at Hyderabad which will bring together the building energy experts from the U.S. and India. The experts will explore recent collaborations, state-of-the-art technologies, and deployment activities, to provide the stakeholders an access to clean-energy developments and the economy in both countries.
