Team Shunya, IIT Bombay is an interdisciplinary team comprising of 9+ faculty members and 60+ students specializing in buildings simulations, solar passive architecture, solar thermal and photovoltaics and modular pre-fabricated construction technologies. Our aim is to build "affordable pre-fabricated net zero solar powered houses" making India's future energy secure. We would like to build a solar-powered, sustainable house for the Indian middle class, which could serve as the answer to India's growing energy and housing problems. Our mission is to bring about a change in the Indian building industry, by demonstrating the affordability of sustainable housing, To formulate and document a design process, which could be replicated to create sustainable homes in a resource efficient way and to raise awareness in the nation about energy efficiency, responsible energy use and the potential of renewable technology with emphasis on solar energy.
