Abstract

Buildings, as we all can rightly agree to, are the measuring blocks for any development. The Development of any country largely depends upon the building of structures. From modifying the conventional buildings, the trend has now wholly shifted to a whole new concept of Green Buildings. Green building, refers to both the structure and the process involved that are environmentally accountable and amenity efficient throughout the lifestyle of the building. For the past more than half-a-century, many researchers and scholars have done the research for the development and improvement of green building construction and related technologies around the globe. Considering the environmental conditions, India has become the world second largest emitter of greenhouse gases. The initial economic consumption of a green building may seem to be a matter of concern for some, but for a long run loop, say for after 50 years, it would prove to be most economically efficient building involving all the ecological measures. The study consummates that as much as 40-50% energy saving is possible in green buildings. This paper deliberates about the aspect of energy efficient buildings, i.e. Green Buildings in India's aspect to diminish energy usage besides climate changes over greenhouse gases. Finally, the author would emphasise on the necessity of Green Buildings.
