UN spotlight on Kerala's energy-positive EMC campus

The EMC energy positive campus in Kerala was developed to allow natural cross-ventilation from building forms and openings. The campus has a 30 kilowatt grid-connected solar capacity that exports around 50 kWh per day on average, with a doubling of the capacity under implementation. The EMC campus also uses daylighting controls, chlorofluorocarbon and hydrochlorofluorocarbon free heating, ventilation and cooling systems, along with a halogen-free fire-fighting system. Solar reflectance index coating combined with high-albedo paintings and turbo-vents for passive cooling have been used on the buildings, and tropical rainforest trees help create cool and shaded surroundings. For the construction process, certified green construction materials, recycled wood boards, low-emitting paints and adhesives, and green-plus certified carpets have been used. Building envelope intensities are less than 10 kWh/m2 /year.
