Indira Paryavaran Bhavan is a building, located in the Indian capital New Delhi, that uses energy-efficient construction materials and solar passive design, making it the country's first ever net zero energy building.
The building is equipped with a fancy robotic parking system that can accommodate 330 cars. Its computing devices consist of thin-client networking systems rather than regular desktop computers, helping further minimize energy consumption.
The building is capable of utilizing up to 75% of natural daylight to reduce energy consumption. It also happens to have the largest rooftop solar system among multi-storied buildings in India, and makes use of low-discharge water fixtures and grey water recycling systems to minimize water consumption.
Indira Paryavaran Bhavan is also entirely accessible for people with physical disabilities, a rarity among buildings in India.
