India doubled its floor area of buildings between 2001-2005 and is experiencing the fastest rate of growth in new building in the world. By 2050 India will have added about 35 billion m2 of new building floor area. To date, the efforts of India's policymakers have focused on reducing energy consumption in new commercial buildings, but to achieve a significant scale will depend on efficiency measures becoming standard in the residential building segment which until now has not been a priority for energy efficiency policy yet makes up 75% of India's construction market.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) report "Achieving scale in energy-efficient buildings in India: A view from the construction and real estate sectors" commissioned by the GBPN explains the challenges and opportunities of investing in energy efficiency in buildings in India.
