Assessment of operative energy optimization in case of haveli-turned-hotels located in composite climate zone of India


Author(s): Amitava Sarkar and Pooja Jha

Abstract: In the study area of Rajasthan in India many architectonic picturesque havelis of 200 years age has been converted to heritage hotels to cater to the both national and international tourists visiting this and surrounding places to enable them to experience the charm and vigor of the traditional haveli architecture of Rajasthan, India. According to the Indian Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), the energy consumption due to HVAC and lighting in hospitality industry accounts to almost 62% of the total energy usage and air-conditioners account for the majority of those power demands to maintain indoor comfort conditions in hotels. Considering the above scenario, this research presents the assessment of the impacts of building envelope construction regarding wall, roof, window-wall-ratio (WWR) and glazing type affecting the operative energy consumption of the haveli-turned hotel buildings located in the composite climate of Rajasthan. This study will help in selecting the appropriate construction materials for similar case to achieve reduced optimum operative energy consumption which will also reduce the overall energy footprint of those similar commercial buildings located in the composite climate of India. The paper has analyzed the design specifications and other energy conservation measures that help to mitigate the operational energy demand of a hotel and has proposed a scalable material suggestion and WWR recommendations that can be readily adapted in similar projects in similar climatic zones. The paper has also proposed further scope of research.
