      Kamayani Barshilia
Abstract: Three-fourths of the world’s energy is consumed in cities and more than half of it is consumed in buildings. The construction sector is one of the most traditional & cost oriented industries and it makes much sense to bring innovations that are environmentally and economically sustainable. Sustainability in the construction sector or in other words green buildings are mainly focused on the reduction of emissions, construction of energy efficient houses and maintaining thermal comfort of the occupants. However we can further innovate to excel in terms of zeroed environment impacts and resource optimization. To comprehend the innovations which have happened in green buildings, this study entitled “Innovations in Design- A Study of Green Buildings” was conducted. It focuses on technologies and strategies used and catalysts and hindrances faced while adopting Innovation category in green buildings certified under the prevalent green rating systems in India i.e. LEED and GRIHA.
