*Abstract: *

For an energy engineer, consultant, technologist, academic, or anyone
interested in the buildings sector in India, the explosive growth in energy
use and trends in new construction provide a fascinating opportunity for
climate change mitigation. In this talk, Reshma will present transformative
tools, technologies and approaches that can accelerate high-performance
next-generation buildings in India. She will introduce topics such as-
What is a holistic decision framework for a developer-owner?s
energy-related investments, what are effective energy targets and
performance goals for architects and sustainability managers to pursue, and
what types of software tools, building products and policies help enable
short and long terms benefits? She will offer inventive combinations of
building wisdom and technology innovation that have been validated through
building energy simulation, case studies and expert opinion. These are
based on findings from a five year US-India research program

funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Indian Government, and can
be found in the new book Building Innovation
