Energy Efficient Building Envelope and Ventilation Strategies for Multi-Storey Residential Buildings in India

This paper is based on research on energy use in dwellings and energy modeling of typical spaces in dwellings. The paper presents key strategies for designing energy-efficient multi-storey residential buildings based on the results obtained by integrating energy-efficient envelope and ventilation strategies in sample bedrooms of three multi-storey residential projects: Indore (composite climate); Chennai (warm and humid climate); and Rajkot (composite climate). The experience from these three projects shows that a reduction in peak operative temperatures in the range of 4–7 °C is possible by implementing these strategies.
