India to Host Training Programme on Passive Solar Design, Daylighting and Simulations for Green Buildings

Indian Institute for Human SettlementsMUMBAI: Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS), a national education institution in association with Environmental Design Solutions (EDS) has announced a training programme on passive solar design, daylighting and simulations for green buildings.

The programme will be held at Regus Business Center, Connaught Place, Pune from May 4 -5, 2013. Daylighting is an essential aspect of green and sustainable buildings, especially since dependence on artificial lighting greatly magnifies the energy and cost inefficiency of a building. An advanced daylighting strategy enables lower environmental costs, as well as healthier working and living environments.

The objective of this training programme is to equip participants with the practical know-how to undertake shading and daylighting simulations on their own. It will cover basic concepts of solar passive design, which is an inherent component of daylighting buildings. Interactive and hands-on training of simulation tools such as autodesk ecotect and radiance will be provided as well as different types of facade glazing, their properties and criteria for selection will be discussed in detail.

Application is open to candidates from all disciplines but individuals with backgrounds in architecture, planning, engineering are encouraged to apply. The course faculty includes with over 8 years of working experience in projects dealing with sustainable development, building energy efficiency and green buildings.
