Hyderabad, 8th September, 2017: ACREX Hall of Fame – an industry benchmark instituted by ISHRAE in partnership with Danfoss India recently held the ACREX- Hall of Fame energy efficiency drive at The Park, Hyderabad, to honor excellence achieved in conserving energy by building projects in India. The coveted recognition showcases success stories and encourages innovation in technology, design and systems to achieve the highest standards of energy efficient HVAC systems in buildings.

Recent economic changes have caused consumers to revaluate how they use energy and maximizing energy efficiency and sustainability of buildings. With rapid social and environmental changes underway, focus on conservation of natural resources and promoting sustainable living has considerably increased. Therefore, employing more energy efficient building methods in new construction and in renovation could reduce the amount of energy consumed, thereby saving money and reducing electric load growth and air emissions resulting from electric generation. Similarly, sustainability in building developments is a vast and complex subject that must be considered from the nascent stages as the potential environmental impacts are very significant. There have been many developments in the promotion of energy efficiency in the construction sector, which is organized and acknowledged by ISHRAE.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. D. Nirmal Ram, Presidential Member and ACREX Chairman – We at ACREX believe in organic development and sustainable living which runs parallel with where we reside. With resource degeneration steadily rising in the country, it is crucial that we construct buildings that are environment friendly and that help in harnessing and optimizing the renewable resources. ACREX- Hall of Fame is a platform to promote and generate awareness about the significance of green living and this ceremony was to applaud the commendable work that has been developed in the last year. We look forward to the incessant support of builders and architects in helping establish our vision of 100% sustainable buildings one day”

A special message was shared by, Mr. Sushil Chaudhry, Presidential Member – ISHRAE and Chairman – Technical Committee, ACREX Hall of Fame, said “It was incredible seeing the massive entries we received this year for the ACREX Hall of Fame.  We believe in acknowledging and honoring the efforts taken by the builders to help spread the message of sustainability and importance of energy conservation and this was our stride towards the same”.

In line with the ACREX India vision of becoming the largest network and the most dynamic platform for the HVAC&R and the building construction Industry, ISHRAE has advocated the importance of natural resources, recycling and reusing materials alongside employing energy efficient equipments is the key to organic sustenance. Laying importance on efficient use of resources such as energy, water among other, will aid in protecting occupant’s health and improving quality of life.

According to Mr. Ravichandran Purushothaman, President, Danfoss Industries Pvt. Ltd“India is yet to uncover its full potential for growth in infrastructure sector and energy efficiency is key towards building a sustainable tomorrow. Hyderabad and its neighboring cities are fast developing, which can benefit immensely from best practices to save operational costs and contribute to the environment, through adoption of energy efficient practices in infrastructure. Through ACREX Energy Efficiency Drive, which is in its third edition this year, we showcase energy-efficient buildings across India and the latest world-class solutions, which will serve as an inspiration for the upcoming commercial building projects as well as retrofit projects, to actively pursue solutions for energy efficiency thus creating benchmarks which will stand testimony to India’s excellence in HVAC&R in Commercial Buildings. Every year, ACREX ‘Hall of Fame’ recognizes the best project amongst these to serve as a stimulus to many more.”

Every year, from the first held in 2016 in Mumbai, ACREX Hall of Fame honors and recognizes the best in energy efficient HVAC systems in buildings across various categories and celebrates its achievements and contribution towards the planet.
