New Green Building Code

New Green Building Code

The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) launched a code for new commercial buildings in the country. Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) 2017 was developed by Ministry of Power and BEE.

  • The code sets parameters for builders, designers and architects to integrate renewable energy sources in building design with the inclusion of passive design strategies.
  • It promotes low-carbon growth and lead to 30-50% energy savings by commercial buildings by 2030.
  • In order for a building to be considered ECBC-compliant, it will need to demonstrate minimum energy savings of 25 per cent.
  • Additional improvements will enable new buildings to achieve higher grades like ECBC+ or SuperECBC, leading to further energy savings of 35 per cent and 50 per cent, respectively.
