Energy Conservation and Commercialization (ECO) III (ECO III)

  • Location:

  • Type of policy:
    International co-operation

  • Implementation period:
    2006 to 2011

The Energy Conservation and Commercialization (ECO-III) project‘s overall objective was to assist the Government of India in the implementation of the Energy Conservation Act of 2001 by building on the earlier phases of the ECO project, with activities aligned with BEE’s focus areas as proposed in the 11th Five Year Plan – namely, developing institutional capacity at the state level by working with designated agencies, and continuing to develop the implementation framework for energy efficiency in (new and existing) buildings and in the municipal sector. Another key objective was to prepare for mandatory enforcement efforts of the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) which will require fundamental changes in the way commercial buildings are designed and constructed vis-à-vis building’s envelope, lighting, and Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system.
