  • The intent of this criterion is to promote the use of renewable energy in the projects and, thereby, reduce the project’s dependency on fuels derived from conventional sources.

Maximum Points : 5

1) Appraisal

Alternative – 1

  • On-site and off-site renewable energy system

Note – All renewable energy systems recognized by the MNRE can be accepted under this criterion post submission of relevant calculations, simulations, and other supporting documents.

Appraisal – 1

  • Ensure installation of on-site and off-site renewable energy system to offset a part of the annual energy consumption of internal artificial lighting, HVAC, and domestic hot water systems as mentioned in Table ( Given below ).
RENEWABLE ENERGY UTILIZATION APPRAISAL

Alternative – 2

  • Off-site renewable energy system

Note : This alternative can only be attempted by non-residential buildings.

Appraisal – 2 ( Mandatory + 5 Points )

  • Demonstrate that 100% of the annual energy consumption of internal artificial lighting, HVAC, and domestic hot water systems is offset through off-site renewable energy systems.

2) Compliance

Compliance – 1

  • Submit calculations indicating the energy required for heating water for domestic purposes as per Appendix 3C.

Compliance – 2

Alternative-1

Compliance – 3

  • Submit calculations and simulations for on-site and off-site renewable energy generation potential.

Compliance – 4

  • Submit technical specification sheets/brochures of the renewable energy system, highlighting the system performance (as per the standard test conditions).

OR

  • Submit a valid GRIHA Product Catalogue certificate as applicable for the systems and their components.

Compliance – 5

  • Submit drawings (.dwg format) showing the location of renewable energy systems on-site.

Compliance – 6

  • Submit purchase orders reflecting the full quantities of renewable energy systems installed on-site.

Alternative-2

Compliance – 3

  • Submit calculations and/or simulations for off-site renewable energy generation potential.

Compliance – 4

  • Submit documents supporting off-site generation of energy through renewable energy systems.
  • These may be RECs for at least 5 years along with a declaration that the RECs are not being used for any other obligatory requirements and will be purchased every year.

OR

Compliance – 5

  • Submit power purchase agreement from the utility for purchase of green power. In the agreement, the address of the particular site must be mentioned.
