ECBC Conformance Check Tools


The Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) was launched in May 2007 by the Hon'ble Minister of Power, and is presently in vogue on voluntary basis.

The ECBC sets minimum energy standards for new commercial buildings having a connected load of 100 kW or contract demand of 120 kVA. BEE is promoting the implementation of energy efficiency measures in existing buildings through Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) which provide an innovative business model through which the energy-saving potential in existing building can be captured and the risk faced by building owner can also be addressed.
