Buildings, Energy, Architecture & Materials
Construction in Bhutan has witnessed rapid growth in the last two decades, resulting in the building sector gutting more than a third of total energy consumed in Bhutan (estimated at 41.58% for 2014). In 2018, for the first time after the formation of the Druk Green Power Corporation (DGPC), Bhutan imported a net energy of 29.32 MU from India, during the months of February and March.
We will work with the Government, key stakeholders, financiers, and private builders to spur a new generation of energy efficient buildings, leading to significant savings in energy consumption and reduction in carbon emissions. We will promote innovative designs, encourage use of wood and integration of renewables.
