Kanagaraj Ganesan has around 10 years of experience in the field of building energy efficiency. He is a licensed architect with post-graduation in “Building Energy Efficiency” from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IITM). In 2009, he spent nine months of his academic time at the Institute of Baueknomie, University of Stuttgart, Germany, where he acquired knowledge of building physics and building energy simulation. He also developed his post-graduation research work on “integrated design process". Until June 2015, he was working as a Senior Programme Officer at Greentech Knowledge Solutions Pvt. Ltd, New Delhi, which has been appointed as Indian Project Management and Technical Unit (PMTU) for the Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP). BEEP is a bilateral project between the Ministry of Power, India, and the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, Switzerland.
