Workshop on Punjab ECBC

Workshop on Energy Efficiency in Commercial Buildings & Implementation of Punjab ECBC in the state of Punjab held on 30th January, 2016 at PEDA Auditorium, Chandigarh.

PEDA in association with Indian Institute of Architect (Chd-Pb Chapter) organized a workshop on energy efficiency in commercial buildings & implementation of Punjab ECBC in the state of Punjab. The objective of the workshop is to sensitize the stakeholders to adopt energy efficiency measures in commercial buildings and the implementation of Punjab ECBC will provide minimum requirements of energy efficient design and construction of buildings. The code shall be mandatory for commercial buildings or building complexes that have a connected load of 100 kW or greater or a contract demand of 120 kVA or greater and conditioned area of 500 m2 or more, as and when it is notified.

The Punjab Energy Conservation Building Code

To bring energy efficiency in building sector, Govt. of Punjab is in the process of notifying the “The Punjab Energy Conservation Building Code” developed involving all the stakeholder departments under the provision of the Energy Conservation Act, 2001. The code covers building aesthetics, building envelop, mechanical systems and equipments including heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, interior and exterior lighting system, service hot water, electrical power and motors including thermal comfort in non centrally air conditioned/heated buildings.

Workshop on Energy Efficiency

The successful implementation of The Punjab ECBC will ensure the construction of energy efficient buildings with reduction in electrical demand. The Punjab ECBC compliant buildings are expected to reduce about 30-40% energy consumption as compared to the conventional buildings. Considering 8% growth in up-coming new commercial buildings, 18 MU of electricity consumption will be reduced by using Punjab ECBC leads to 15 thousand ton carbon dioxide emission abatements, equivalent to planting 6 lacs green trees per annum. All the line departments like Town and Country Planning, Local Govt., Housing and Urban Development, PWD (B&R), Public Health, PUDA, GADAs and Architecture will amend their rules / bye-laws within a period of six months to ensure the implementation of Punjab ECBC in the State of Punjab.
