Gayatri Hada "Solar Passive Architecture an Overview" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-1 | Issue-6, October 2017, pp.483-487, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd3572.pdf

Basic requirement of shelter includes the use of enormous amount of energy for increasing population.Per capita electricity consumption has reached 1010 kilowatt-hour (kWh) in 2014-15, compared with 957 kWh in 2013-14 and 914.41 kWh in 2012-13, according to the Central Electricity Authority (CEA). India presently has an installed power generation capacity of 281,423MW.The peak power deficit—shortfall in supply of power when the demand is maximum—was 5.2% in year 2013-14. Electricity demand in India is very high due to population of 121 crores. Production of electricity is mainly done by fossil fuels. They release gasses and particulates when they burn. Gasses are usually invisible, and include carbon dioxide, which has impacts on the global environment by accelerating global warming. Other gasses, like carbon monoxide, have impacts within the home, by affecting breathing and reducing the oxygen content of the blood. Fossil fuels are depleting at a very fast rate and the production of electricity by them is not eco-friendly. For sustainable development and to reduce the environmental pollution Solar Passive Architecture is best option specially for building sector. Solar energy is genesis for all forms of energy. With its pollution free nature, virtually inexhaustible supply and global distribution- solar energy is very attractive energy resource. Making a building comfortable for human occupation with the minimum use of electricity consumption is called the Solar Passive Architecture.
