"For country like our lighting, domestic and commercial business needs are indeed disproportionately high compared to other parts of the World. More so because we have long way to go levels of people increase," he said.

He also said that adoption of modern building code is also relevant as in a rapidly transforming Indian economy, a lot of building construction would be done in next few years.

Citing estimates, he said have build only one third of the buildings it will have by 2030 and thus there will be 200 per cent expansion.

The three-day conference is organised by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), under the aegis of the Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP).

The minister also launched the Design Guidelines for Energy-Efficient Multi-Storey Residential Buildings (Warm and Humid Climates) during the inauguration of the conference.
