    LEED is foreign, GRIHA is indian version of LEED. GRIHA comes under MNRE, BEE comes under power ministry. GRIHA only for houses/buildings . BEE for many things like equipments, lighting system, etc. where energy efficiency can be a concern.
    BEE still exists ,if one passes the BEE exam which happens yearly , he will get a certificate for energy auditor and may increase his points in CV and pay package.

  • @aamengineer thanks adding LEED is foreign but GRIHA is not its indian version. LEED is the outcome of tieup of TERI with USGBC.

    indian version means thats GRIHA has taken most of LEED in indian way. GRIHAs certification will be recognised on same par with LEED and vice versa. LEED is purely American and foreign. Since indian govt, wants LEED rating india ,Teri has joined hands with USGBC so that ratings can be based on indian condition and efforts are being made to be recognised both as same

  • Does BEE still exist.
    Yup it does. Look up http://beeindia.in/ . I was preparing for BEE certification once, but quit midway, long story.

  • 3 Rating systems in India

    1. GRIHA 2007 - Green Rated Integrated Habitat Assessment - by TERI and MNRE - based on building 'design'


    2. EPI - Energy Performance Index - a national star-rating system by BEE (Bureau of Energy Eff) -- rates 'operational' buildings -- conforming to ECBC (Energy Conservation Building Code) eg RBI buildings in Delhi

    3. IGBC - Indian Green Building Council - a pvt organization - carrying a program called LEED India 2007 - Leadership in Energy and Enval Design -- adapted from a similar US's LEED program
