The concept of Energy Efficient Buildings has gained international attention in the last few years and is now seen as the future target for the design of buildings. Energy Efficient Building is a residential or commercial building with reduced energy needs through efficiency gains and part of energy needs can be supplemented with renewable technologies. The cost-effective steps toward reduction in a building's energy consumption, occurs during the design process, which is significantly away from conventional construction practice. Successful energy efficient building design combines time tested natural conditioning designs or principles that work with the onsite assets.
