Abstract
Emphasis on the reduction of GHG emissions is world over, there has been considerable research on design and materials in the construction sector that support reduction in emissions and rating systems have been developed by various agencies to rate the projects based on various factors such as materials, embodied energy, passive design methodologies and energy consumption, which covers roughly 20% of the overall emission, a major factor being the source of energy. India still relies majorly on non-renewable energy due to its lower cost of production and operation and higher cost of renewable energy, creating an impediment in achieving desired goals. There has been a slight but sizable amount of research in post occupancy performance in the residential sector in India where the consumptions are slight rigid, whereas the commercial buildings have higher energy consumption and there is a good scope to reduce through intervention, it is observed through study that there is a lack of such research. It is indispensable to have a monitoring system for all the buildings on their performance to identify the emissions at the building, city and national levels which would give a realistic measure on emissions and help in creating mitigatory measures in achieving set goals. This paper highlights the need for such a model.
