While the Central Government has powers under the EC Act , the state governments have the flexibility to modify the code to suit local or regional needs and notify them. Presently, the code is in voluntary phase of implementation. About 22 states are at various stages of mandating ECBC, wherein most of building construction activities are happening across the country. The following areas of the enclosed building envelope shall be sealed, caulked, gasketed, or weather-stripped to minimize air leakage:. Natural ventilation shall comply with the design guidelines provided for natural ventilation in the National Building Code of India Part 8, 5.

It provides the minimum requirements for the energy-efficient design and construction of buildings. The code is mandatory for commercial buildings or building complexes that have a connected load of kW or greater or a contract demand of kVA or greater.

The code is also applicable to all buildings with a conditioned floor area of 1,m2 10,ft2 or greater. Site Search User. Wikis Members More Cancel. This group requires membership for participation - click to join.

With the launch of the Energy Conservation Building Code ECBC , the Ministry of Power aims to promote methods that ensure energy efficiency in commercial spaces , which consume a large amount of electricity. After assessing several energy and cost-saving techniques for buildings, the Ministry introduced ECBC, which would enable architects and developers in using renewable energy sources and energy-efficient machines in the building design. India is expected to see the construction of around two-thirds of its existing number of buildings by To this end, the government has a challenging task of fulfilling the rapidly rising need for energy. For all the commercial buildings that are looking to save power while struggling with climatic change, the BEE has come up with ECBC — a mechanism to achieve the highest levels of energy efficiency.
