WITH FOCUS ON SOLAR ENERGY
Masters in Planning
(Environmental Planning)
2nd Semester Studio
School of Planning and Architecture
New Delhi
BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
•2012 declared as International Year for Sustainable energy by U.N
•Development to be aligned along sustainability
•Renewable energy is one step towards this…
•Planning initiative – mainstream solar energy concerns into
development process
AIM
To formulate the environmental plan for sustainable
development of Shimla.
.OBJECTIVES
• To reduce the dependence on
conventional and non-renewable
energy sources.
• To integrate new and renewable
energy
systems
with
the
development planning process.
• To analyze the renewable energy
relationship with built form and
physiography.
METHODOLOGY
Development
Planning
Process
Integration of
Solar energy
Identify
parameters for
analysis
Literature study,
data collection,
analysis – using
Ecotect
Output – making spatial development
energy sensitive
PARAMETERS FOR ANALYSIS
ELEVATION
ASPECT
SLOPE
INSOLATION
PARAMETERS FOR ANALYSIS
VEGETATION
LAND USE
BUILT FORM
DENSITY
TYPE OF ANALYSIS
How it will be used in analysis
• Land use distribution- to be related with parameters
• Density distribution across the planning area
Check feasibility of renewable energy by evaluating the existing
projects
• Analyze aspect, slope, elevation
• Analyze consumption pattern – building level data collection
• Identify critical areas- in terms of pollution
