Design strategies for future residential buildings in Delhi, India
This study aims to understand that the houses designed today will be comfortable to live in in the next 100 years and proposes appropriate passive strategies that will be suitable for residential buildings in Delhi, India. To achieve the aim the present and future climate of the region is analyzed using the climate data provided by IPCC. The IPCC medium to high emission scenario is considered for the study. A residential building in Delhi is modeled in DesignBuilder software and the internal conditions are recorded for the building for the present climate, 2050, and 2080. The results show that mechanical cooling will be required for the majority of the time by 2080. Without cooling the building will not be comfortable to live in even with recommended strategies. The study also proposes renewable systems suitable for Delhi which can help in achieving net-zero.

Abstract

This study aims to understand that the houses designed today will be comfortable to live in in the next 100 years and proposes appropriate passive strategies that will be suitable for residential buildings in Delhi, India. To achieve the aim the present and future climate of the region is analyzed using the climate data provided by IPCC. The IPCC medium to high emission scenario is considered for the study. A residential building in Delhi is modeled in DesignBuilder software and the internal conditions are recorded for the building for the present climate, 2050, and 2080. The results show that mechanical cooling will be required for the majority of the time by 2080. Without cooling the building will not be comfortable to live in even with recommended strategies. The study also proposes renewable systems suitable for Delhi which can help in achieving net-zero.
