Energy Conservation Building Code

The Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC), was launched by Ministry of Power, Government of India in May 2007, as a first step towards promoting energy efficiency in the building sector.

The ECBC was set up by India’s Bureau of Energy Efficiency, with support and guidance from United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and significant inputs from various other stakeholders such as practicing architects, consultants, educational institutions and other government organizations.

The Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) was developed by the Govt. of India for new commercial buildings on 27th May 2007.  ECBC sets minimum energy standards for commercial buildings having a connected load of 100kW or contract demand of 120 KVA and above. While the Central Government has powers under the EC Act 2001, the state governments have the flexibility to modify the code to suit local or regional needs and notify them.

The ECBC provides design norms for:

  • Building envelope, including thermal performance requirements for walls, roofs, and windows;
  • Lighting system, including daylighting, and lamps and luminaire performance requirements;
  • HVAC system, including energy performance of chillers and air distribution systems;
  • Electrical system; and
  • Water heating and pumping systems, including requirements for solar hot-water systems.

The code provides three options for compliance:

  1. Compliance with the performance requirements for each subsystem and system;
  2. Compliance with the performance requirements of each system, but with tradeoffs between subsystems; and
  3. Building-level performance compliance.

During the development of ECBC, analysis conducted through energy simulation indicated that ECBC-compliant buildings may use 40 to 60% less energy than similar buildings being designed and constructed at that time.

    Code compliance at the system level and through Whole Building Performance approach that require knowledge of energy simulation to model the proposed building.
