Views: 260

Students of IIT Bombay (IIT B) and Rachana Sansad Academy of Architecture have started started building a solar-powered 70 sqm house using various materials like steel and fibre, but not brick and cement. The structure is expected to be ready by February.
The structure will eventually be disassembled and taken to Versailles in France for the international sustainable building design competition hosted by the US Department of Energy. IIT B has also set up a 1MWp (1 MW peak PV power) on the rooftops of its 16 buildings. The plant will occupy a 12,000 sqm area on the rooftops of 16 academic buildings. The energy generated by the solar photovoltaic plant will be up to 25% of the total power requirement of the 16 buildings.
