India Mandates Building Energy Code
The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) in India is making it mandatory for all Indian state governments to implement the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) by 2017, according to The Economic Times.
The ECBC was first introduced in 2007 and implemented on a voluntary basis. So far, seven states have implemented the code, reports the Economic Times.
Under the ECBC, the load requirement for buildings to comply is 100 kW or 120 kilovolt-amps (kVa), which means that both commercial and high-rise residential buildings (about five stories or higher) come under the code’s purview. The code covers new buildings and renovations and expansions of old buildings and covers systems such as lighting, HVAC and building envelopes.
