LUMS Energy Institute Launches Report on Energy-Efficient Buildings
In a milestone event, the LUMS Energy Institute (LEI), a research and capacity building centre with a focus on Pakistan’s energy sector, has unveiled a report titled Sustainable Architecture: Advancing Energy Efficient Buildings. The report addresses the acute energy challenge and how adopting energy-efficient practices in residential construction can drastically reduce loads.
While addressing policymakers, regulatory bodies, and key stakeholders, Dr. Fiaz Ahmad Chaudhry, Director, LUMS Energy Institute, said, “Pakistan's expenditure of nearly USD 100 billion on power plants, predominantly for summer cooling loads, is unsustainable. By adopting the energy-efficient practices we can reduce cooling loads by at least 50%, saving billions of dollars.
