Analysis of Energy Conservation Factors in Buildings Using Interpretive Structural Modeling Methodology: An Indian Perspective

Analysis of Energy Conservation Factors in Buildings Using Interpretive Structural Modeling... Increasing daily energy demand is a cause of concern globally; buildings consume most of the energy generated, so energy conservation in buildings should be a prime concern to save energy worldwide. In the Indian context, among the previous studies to figure out the driving factors responsible for conservation of energy in buildings, they focused mainly on a sector of buildings or highly localized, lacking a holistic approach. The attempt to find building conservation factors is meager and is in scarcity. This research fills the gap by providing a holistic approach to driving factors responsible for energy conservation in buildings. The present study seeks to explore the interrelationships between the twenty factors identified in this research using interpretive structural modeling (ISM) methodology. It arrives at the dominant factors that are highly influential in driving conservation principles in built environments in India. Among the twenty factors identified, the results indicate that the six most highly impactful factors are industry orientation, comfort, change in lifestyle, saving the environment, promoting sustainability, and testing new theories in energy conservation. The managerial applications of the derived results of this research are also discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of The Institution of Engineers (India): Series A Springer Journals

Abstract

Increasing daily energy demand is a cause of concern globally; buildings consume most of the energy generated, so energy conservation in buildings should be a prime concern to save energy worldwide. In the Indian context, among the previous studies to figure out the driving factors responsible for conservation of energy in buildings, they focused mainly on a sector of buildings or highly localized, lacking a holistic approach. The attempt to find building conservation factors is meager and is in scarcity. This research fills the gap by providing a holistic approach to driving factors responsible for energy conservation in buildings. The present study seeks to explore the interrelationships between the twenty factors identified in this research using interpretive structural modeling (ISM) methodology. It arrives at the dominant factors that are highly influential in driving conservation principles in built environments in India. Among the twenty factors identified, the results indicate that the six most highly impactful factors are industry orientation, comfort, change in lifestyle, saving the environment, promoting sustainability, and testing new theories in energy conservation. The managerial applications of the derived results of this research are also discussed.
