Need for energy-efficient engineering, construction technologies: Puri

New Delhi, Sep 18 (UNI) Minister of State(I/C) for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep S Puri on Wednesday called for a paradigm shift in urban planning with sustainability at the core of development.
''We must shift from a built environment which is energy wasting to energy saving, or better yet to one which generates energy. Energy-efficient engineering and construction technologies need to be at the core of reformulated building regulations and construction practices,'' he added.
The Minister was speaking at a national seminar on 'Emerging Trends in Public Architecture' organised by Central Public Works Department(CPWD) here.
Addressing those present, the Housing Minister stated that as India urbanizes further, there will be an exponential increase in the volume and complexity of waste, including hazardous e-waste, and quite extraordinary demands for energy, which cannot possibly be met through current fossil-fuel resources.
''If we are to cater to our future in such a large magnitude, engineering breakthroughs will be needed in which we do not degrade our limited natural resources and the ecological systems on which we all depend,'' he added.
