In this research a study on five Low Energy Buildings has been conducted. The first two buildings are in Bangalore (Office building of M/S Jaisim Fountain- Head, SUVIDHA retirement village). The next two buildings are in Kerala (CHAMAN, THEJAS resort) and the last building is in Pondicherry (Auroville Earth Institute). The climatic conditions in all these places are different. Various methods of construction and materials are used to achieve the comfort temperature and humidity levels of those regions. Using Passive architecture design, maximum availability of daylight and natural wind is obtained inside these buildings, which reduces energy consumption. Uses of recycled and reused materials which are locally available have been practiced here. Materials that are alternative to concrete have been widely used in these buildings, which helped in reducing the temperature levels inside the buildings. Using these methods how these five buildings have succeeded in energy conservation and lowering of carbon emission have been mentioned in this report which makes all these buildings a Low Energy Building.
