Who WE ARE
The Mahindra TERI Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Sustainable Habitats is a joint research initiative of Mahindra Lifespaces and TERI. It will focus on developing science-based solutions for India’s future built environment, with a view to reducing the energy footprint of the real estate industry. The CoE will focus on providing a coherent & robust database for market ready, scalable and viable materials and technologies that are energy efficient.
The use of state-of-the art research techniques, tools and performance measurement solutions will help generate performance data and metrics that can provide scale to the implementation of energy-efficient building stock in India which today stands at less than 5%. It will also work towards preparing policy briefs for Central and State Ministries to promote ‘green’ development that can transform India’s housing industry & resultantly the energy footprint. Research outputs will be validated on the field prior to dissemination of the databases, guidelines and standards to the real estate and building materials industry.
