Energy Retrofitting: The Technique to Reduce Carbon Emission

Rohit V Ambapkar, Dr. K Ravi

Nowadays, there is remarkable enhancement in energy issues that are responsible for causing threats to the environment. These issues are generated due to growth in construction industry and ignorance of environmental aspects as well as carbon emission. Various construction activities are carried out with enhanced features to greater extent. The building sector is also responsible for emitting carbon dioxide, greenhouse gases in huge amount and increase the occurrence of climatic change. Therefore to lessen carbon emission and to stop climatic change, there is need to use some advanced technique. In early days, buildings were designed by using traditional approaches which consumes huge energy and resources. Hence to reduce carbon emission of existing building, the study has been done which explores that there is need to use the retrofitting technique. Retrofitting is the process in which modification takes place after manufacturing. In terms of building, Retrofitting means that make changes towards the system inside the building or in part of the entire building after its initial construction and occupation. Retrofitting of existing buildings can help us to reduce the energy consumption as well as energy consumption will routinely reduce carbon emission.
