Liberalization and globalization has increased the pace of development, especially in developing countries like India, resulting into rapid consumption of energy .The construction sector accounts for the major use of energy. Moreover the operation of buildings consumes more energy than any other activity and consequently lifetime efficiency of buildings is a major determinant of total energy demand. If the current scenario prevails then very soon there will be serious problem of energy crisis. Every action of construction activity includes energy
