The Centre for Advanced Research in Building Science and Energy (CARBSE) in CEPT University, Ahmedabad houses some of the world’s most cutting-edge research in energy-efficient building design. At the same time, it’s a living laboratory in itself, operating as a net-zero energy building. As a result, the building provides invaluable lessons in designing, constructing and operating a net-zero energy facility.
The webinar brought on board two experts from Centre for Advanced Research in Building Science and Energy (CARBSE), Prof. Rajan Rawal – Executive Director and Dr. Yash Shukla – Technical Head. Prof. Rawal is an architect and his work emphasizes on ‘energy performance of buildings and cities’ and ‘architectural science education’. Dr. Shukla has extensive experience in building management systems, building energy analysis, HVAC system operation, component characterization facilities, development of test chambers, building simulation modeling, and energy efficiency control algorithms. This webinar brought their expert insights and rich experience of designing, occupying and managing an exemplary Net Zero Energy Building in India.
