Developing a Highly Efficient Multi-use Special Economic Zone in India

June 3, 2010 - 12:00pm

LBNL is collaborating with Metro Valley to create the most energy efficient built environment in India. The proposed project is an ITES (Information Technology Enabled Services) Special Economic Zone which is a multi-tenanted campus consisting of work and support spaces for companies involved in research or knowledge processing. The goal of the project reaches beyond an energy efficient built environment for the Knowledge Industry to sustainability in the broadest sense:  a sustainable environment, not just from the point of view of energy consumption, but also relative to the people who use it, the organizations that inhabit it, and as part of the broader society, relevant to the time, culture, and the location where it is built. This presentation will describe the evolution of the project, and the progress so far. It will give an outline of the holistic methodology adopted for the project and describe the methodologies and simulations adopted to develop the energy efficient built-form. Jagadeesh Taluri is the Project Head of the Eco-Knowledge City project. Prior to this he was the Project architect for the Suzlon One Earth, global administrative headquarters for Suzlon Energy Limited, which was recently awarded the LEED Platinum and TERI 5star ratings. Khushboo Modgil is the MEP Division Head for the project. She is an associate of Sterling India, a leading MEP consulting firm which has worked on many well known buildings in India.
