Scheme on “Energy Efficient Solar/ Green Buildings” for implementation during 2013-14 and rest of the 12th Five year Plan period

The main objective of the scheme is to promote the widespread construction of energy efficient solar/ green buildings in the country through a combination of financial and promotional incentives, and other support measures so as to save a substantial amount of electricity and other fossil fuels apart from having peak load shavings in cities and towns. The objective will be achieved by providing promotional incentives for the construction of green buildings for creating awareness by organizing workshops, seminars and trainings for engineers, planners, builders, architects, consultants, housing financing organizations and potential users and besides, for development of technical literature, compilation and publishing of documents related to solar/ green buildings and installation of renewable energy projects/systems in the green buildings.
