Rapid population growth rate and urbanization will have a dramatic effect on the increased demand for residences. India needs to increase its electricity generation by five to six times to meet the lifeline per capita consumption needs. Using renewable energy can play an important role in the generation of energy. An integrated tool having energy conservation modules is developed for generating design sizes, estimates of capital, life cycle costs, saving in energy, carbon emission prevented for the identified technically efficient and economically viable sustainable technologies. A case study of a residential township in Nagpur, India has been presented. Unit costs of energy per Kilowatt-hour using a solar water heater, solar photovoltaic are found INR11.21 (1USD = INR63 in 2015) and INR2.36 respectively. Cost of installation and life cycle cost of solar water heater, are INR24, 16,295, INR40, 14,238.75 respectively. Solar photovoltaic panels required initial capital of INR5, 84,254 and the life cycle cost was found INR 36,13,325.07. Carbon emission prevented using SWH and Solar photovoltaic was 101.84 MT and 13.58 MT respectively. This paper also addresses module of wind turbine and hybrid energy (solar photovoltaic + wind turbine). This study created a choice of technologies for integration in residential townships for conservation of energy.
