A joint research project between India and Australia has produced a new set of guidelines for India’s building code that aims to reduce the energy consumption of the second most populated country in the world.
The guidelines follow a four-year collaboration between the University of Sydney’s IEQ Lab (Indoor Environmental Quality Lab), the University of Technology Sydney and CEPT University in Ahmedabad, India. The project is being led by Professor Richard de Dear from the University of Sydney’s School of Architecture, Design and Planning.
