“All the glass which you see outside the building is twin-paned glass which allows only the light to come in but not the heat, significantly, hence reducing air conditioning and lighting costs. The lighting systems used inside the building have the activity monitors so if they do not sense human activity for more than fifteen minutes, the lights would automatically switch off. Also, we have software which specifically monitors the lux levels inside the rooms, which is essentially to say that if you have over-clouded skies, you know, the lights inside the ODCs (offshore development centres) and light inside the work places would automatically brighten up, and if you have a brightly lit sky, they would dim, hence saving electricity.”

“Leave alone corporate responsibility, even the sheer economics of this whole enterprise is very attractive. You spend 15 percent to 20 percent more on your capex (capital expenditure), create a building like this, but look at us today, we are actually saving almost 40 to 45 per cent of power costs and power costs in any building is the largest chunk of expenditure…the operating expenditure on the building, that’s power. And we are saving 40 to 45 per cent of power month on month, year on year. So we have, in effect, recovered our costs very easily and today, if you look at the cost of running this building, yes, it is far far lesser than any other building of this size anywhere in the country.”

“If you have just the new buildings, new commercial buildings bring in energy efficiency norms, you could save roughly about 1.7 billion kilowatt hours and if that happens, then you can wipe out the entire, you know, energy deficit which we have- the peak deficit as well as the base load deficit. At the same time, we said that there is about roughly 50,000 megawatt of electricity required to electrify the non-electrified. You will have enough electricity to also service people who are not consumers as yet.”
