This aims to cut energy consumption by half during building design and construction

Commercial buildings and larger apartment complexes in the state that use more electricity are required to abide by the energy conservation building code that was created by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEEE), which has been adopted by the state government.

The government issued the Tamil Nadu Energy Conservation Building Code (TNECBC) 2022 in accordance with the Energy Conservation Act. To reduce energy consumption without compromising a building's functionality or the welfare of its occupants, TNECBC establishes energy standards that must be adhered to during the design and construction of buildings.

The hospitality, healthcare, business, and educational sectors will all be subject to the code, with the exception of shopping centres and all governmental structures.

The code, which will consider the building's envelope, comfort system, lighting and electrical system, and renewable energy system to determine how energy efficient a building is, should be followed by those with the connected load of 100kW and above, contract demand of 120kVA and above, or built up area of 2,000 sq m.

Buildings that comply with TNECBC are predicted to use up to 50% less energy than conventional buildings, with costs associated with such energy-efficient construction rising by up to 2%.
