Green Building Analysis through Energy Modelling
Jaypratik Goswami | Neha Tiwari 
Abstract: Global warming and climate change caused due to the release of greenhouse gases comprising mainly carbon dioxide has been recognised as the most deadly threats of the 21st century. The buildings in modern cities account a share of 40 % in total energy consumption. So the energy consumption can be precisely lowered down by improving efficiency factor in commercial buildings which would be an effective measure to lessen greenhouse gas emissions and also reducing the energy cost in a significant way without reducing the thermal comfort and productivity of the building owners. In India, we deal with a diverse climate patterns ranging from cold, moderate and warm types which play an important part in energy consumption practices. So the efficiency programmes should be designed taking the count of relative climate types. This research paper discusses the role of energy efficiency in the commercial buildings in India which is mainly focussed on reducing the energy consumption and environmental degradation due to carbon emissions.
