ECBC stands for Energy Conservation and Building Codes.

It was first launched by the Minister of Power, Government of India, in May 2007.

Its purpose was to help promote energy efficiency in the building sectors. ECBC does so by setting design norms for:

  • Building Envelope -  Thermal performance requirements for walls, roofs, and windows
  • Lighting System - Day lighting, and lamps and luminaire performance requirements
  • HVAC System - Energy performance of chillers and air distribution systems
  • Electrical System
  • Water Heating and Pumping Systems - Requirements for solar hot-water systems
