The President of India Pranab Mukherjee has on February 14 stressed that energy efficiency in the building sector and utilising renewable energy should be increased to manage the rising demand of power in the country. His observation came in light of Planning Commission reports stating that energy supply must grow at a rate of 6.5 per to 7 per cent per annum to meet the nine per cent growth rate of the economy during the Twelfth Plan period.
Referring to the report at a conference on 'green design', in Delhi the President noted the share of electricity consumption by the buildings sector alone is about 35 per cent of the total electricity consumption in the country. However, to achieve sustainability in face of increased demand for resources, he asked policy makers at all levels to address the issue of environmental pressures.
The urban bodies must make certain aspects compulsory while introducing a set of incentives and disincentives so that developers fall in line on the issue of construction of environmental friendly buildings and the bigger houses and complexes also follow this approach, he said. States where a significant part of construction is yet to take place should ensure construction of sustainable habitats. Besides, all central ministries need to promote this in their respective sectors, he added.
The President congratulated the Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy for development and implementation of GRIHA- the indigenous green building rating system of India.
