Construction to Combat Climate Change: Electrical Consumption in a Public Building in Auroville, South India
"Energy demand by public buildings is a decisive factor in climate change. Data from Architecture 2030 - architecture2030.org - reveals that energy demand by public buildings, in the USA, for example, is more than industry and transportation combined. Increasingly hotter summers are leading to an increased consumption of air-conditioning the world over and especially in the tropics. Schools and universities in India, for instance, are installing air-conditioning on a large scale, which is increasing the energy demand in a seemingly never-ending cycle."

Behaviour should be an important element in every energy management strategy and make a major contribution to any zero emissions strategy."
