This take a look at aimed at identifying passive design features via full-size literature observe that may be incorporated in residential buildings to lead them to strength green. The have a look at additionally aimed toward identifying changes in the design method which can have an effect on strength performance in residential buildings.It also analysed the prevailing electric strength use for cooling and lighting fixtures regular residential homes of higher centre profits families in Chennai and the possible electricity savings via adopting positive strength efficient functions inside the case have a look at buildingIt also distinguishes the different roles of developers, architects, interior designers, land owners (clients) and residents that can act as a barrier in achieving energy efficiency in residential buildings. The findings from this study indicate that doubling the thickness of external walls on east and west, use of hollow clay tiles instead of weathering course for roofs and use of appropriate horizontal overhang ratios for all four orientations can reduce the cooling load of the case study building by 64% and hence reduce the total energy use of the building by 26%.In the end it could be concluded that the process of designing strength green residential homes isn’t a ‘one-man’s show’. Architects, developers, interior designers and customers are the opposite actors who can bring a trade in the design exercise.
