State Government Mandates on Green and Energy Efficient Buildings

Jun 02, 2017 Share

The state government will be amending DCR rules to make it mandatory for all new construction to follow ‘green building guidelines’. All new construction in Maharashtra would now be eco-friendly and would comply with energy efficiency regulation.  New buildings will have to adhere to the green building norms, especially for energy conservation. Power minister said no permissions would be given the project is not in line with the norms.

Maharashtra has become the first state in the country to implement energy conservation policy. As per the policy, all government and the semi-government building will have to change their existing tube lights fluorescent lamps to LEDs and government will also give incentives to individual households who wish to replace bulbs and tube lights.

The state government would be installing 1 crore LED lights, 15 lakh energy efficient air conditioners and fans in 1500 government buildings in next 5 years. This initiative will save 128 million units of power across the state. The Maharashtra government has a budget of 824 crores to implement this policy.

The reason to take this initiative of green and energy efficient buildings by the government is that of the pollution that is emitted while production of construction materials which has left a carbon footprint resulting climate change and rise in environment pollution. By using green building concept, we can save the environment. Green building materials help reduce water wastage and improves air and water quality.
