Eco-Niwas Samhita 2018: Technical video

Part I of the Eco-Niwas Samhita (2018) or the Energy Conservation Building Code for Residential buildings (ECBC-R) was launched by the Ministry of Power, GoI, on December 14th 2018. Part I of the code focuses on the building envelope and sets minimum building envelope performance standards to limit heat gain (for cooling dominated climates) and limit heat loss (for heating dominated climates), as well as for ensuring adequate natural ventilation and daylighting potential.

Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP) provided all the technical support for the development of this code.
