Shopping malls, office buildings, residential buildings and public buildings in India shall become more energy efficient. This is the aim of the Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP). Architects develop ideas in workshops on how energy and CO2 can be reduced in buildings. What are the benefits of the individual measures? An INFRAS valuation method provides indications. It helps to estimate a measure's effect already during the planning phase. Furthermore, after the measure's implementation, there is an evaluation on its efficiency and on whether it lives up to the expected promises.
After a successful completion of the first project phase, the Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP) has been extended for another five years in November 2016 (see press release).
