Suzlon Energy Limited is in the business of Green energy. It is one of the leading wind energy companies in the world. It as it stands for its motto ‘powering a greener tomorrow’, was growing phenomenally and needed a Global Corporate Headquarters for its operations in the city of Pune, about 100 miles from Mumbai in India. The climate in Pune is dry and tropical where the temperature ranges from 25 to 40 degrees Celsius from winter to summer. This building is a new construction to house about 2300 inhabitants when finished. The built up area of the project is 8,16,171 s.ft. The buildings are all Ground+2 levels except the Corporate House which is Ground+3. This maintains the neighborhood fabric of the local area. The project is in a sub urban setting spread over 10.4 acres. The project got completed in October 2009. Suzlon One Earth has achieved Platinum level certification (points 56/57) standards and over 150 kW produced on site (5% of its annual energy use) with a total incremental cost of about 11%. There are no other LEED certified buildings with this level of certification and on-site renewable energy that have achieved this kind of cost efficiency.
