To propel the Net-Zero movement in India, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) is conducting a feasibility analysis for 100 buildings across the country to achieve Net Zero Energy status. The typologies include educational institutions, healthcare, shopping complexes, hospitality, airports, and railway/metro stations. Moreover, the analysis will be conducted free of cost for the building owners.
As per the selection criteria, buildings should have a minimum built-up area of 5,000 square meters with the minimum connected load higher than 100 kW. The contract demand should be greater than 120 kVA or as specified by the state or union territory. Further, on conclusion of the analysis, EDS will generate a comprehensive report detailing out all the energy conservation measures to be undertaken by the building owners to achieve an NZEB facility. However, the buildings are not bound to follow these measures.
