To promote energy conservation and to capitalize on opportunities for building energy savings, India’s Bureau of Energy Efficiency developed the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) for commercial buildings in 2007 and updated it in 2017. Eighteen states and two union territories (UTs) have made progress on ECBC and are developing an ecosystem for energy efficient buildings. Other states are in the process of notifying and implementing the code. Gujarat, one of the largest states in terms of economic output, is in the process of notifying and enforcing the ECBC. This fact sheet highlights the potential energy savings and emissions reduction Gujarat could achieve with ECBC implementation and compliance.
