New Delhi, February 27, 2017: As a build up to the upcoming 8th GRIHA Summit, the GRIHA team launched a green building mock-up – SPARSH, an integrated, life size model which endeavours to enhance user experience of a “Green Building” as part of its mandate to build awareness around the concept of green buildings among the masses. The model was inaugurated by Shri Pradeep Kumar Pujari, Secretary, Ministry of Power, GoI, at India Habitat Centre today.
Speaking on the momentous occasion Shri PK Pujari, Secretary, Ministry of Power, said, “SPARSH is a brilliant initiative to integrate green technologies for efficient green buildings. This would chart the way forward for all the future green buildings and address the issue of energy security and energy efficiency, as well.” He also shared that while there is a need to scale up the production of houses using this technology, the demand can only be generated through a shift in the mindset of the people. Therefore, there is an imminent need to popularise the idea.
