ECBC Audits

Energy Conservation Building Code

The Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) was launched in May 2007 ( with the latest version being of 2017 ) by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), Ministry of Power. Its main objective is to establish minimum requirements for energy-efficient design and construction of buildings.

Over time, with our growing technological skills, these buildings have also been increasingly designed and operated to place exorbitant demands on natural resources, such as land, water, and energy, to mention a few. Today, buildings have evolved into a diverse array of typologies designed to meet the highly specific requirements of the people who live and work in them.

Therefore, incorporation of sustainable practices in building design and operation is no longer a choice but a necessity for a sustainable future.

Energy audits involve gathering system information, measuring energy use, developing conservation strategies, choosing the most cost-effective plan, implementing changes, and verifying results. Also, a proactive facility continues improving energy efficiency by repeating this process at regular intervals.

Our Approach
We perform the following activities based on the ECBC Code:
  • Calculation of the Energy Performance Index (EPI)
  • Compliance audits to ensure that building designs meet ECBC requirements
  • Technical control at site during the construction phase to ensure the compliance with the design
  • ’Benchmarking’ to compare the energy efficiency of a building with that of other buildings in the same category and climatic zone
  • Energy efficiency calculations according to ISO standards
  • Thermal performance of windows, doors and shutters: the calculation of thermal transmittance
Benefits we provide
  • Address energy-efficiency improvements in the design stage
  • Ensure that constructed buildings have the designed energy efficiency levels
  • Obtain impute to reduce the peak power
  • Reduce the rate of emissions
  • Obtain a voluntary certification attesting to compliance with the ECBC Code
