GRIHA, an acronym for ‘Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment’, is the National Rating System of India. It has been conceived by TERI and developed jointly with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India. It is a green building ‘design evaluation system’, and is suitable for all kinds of buildings in different climatic zones of the country.
Basics & Benefits Of GRIHA Rating System
Up to 30% reduction in energy consumption
Limited waste generation due to recycling
Less consumption of water
Reduced pollution load & liability
Voluntary building rating systems play an important role in popularizing the concept of green design. As per international trends, the leading rating systems abroad have been devised to suit the building industry of the country where they were developed.
In the Indian context, these foreign rating systems would be useful only for AC buildings. Since a large number of buildings in India are non-AC and that too existing in varied climatic conditions, it is imperative to have a nationally relevant rating system. The bottom line: GRIHA is that much-needed Indian-centric green building rating system.
