Jun 28, 2018 | by Avantis RegTech Legal Research Team

Key Highlights of the Guidelines:

·         All consumers of commercial buildings are suggested to maintain the internal temperature between 24-250C with appropriate humidity and airflow to conserve energy and for the health benefits of occupants, subject to operational and functional requirement.

·         These guidelines are mostly applicable for large premises such as Airports, Hotels, Shopping Malls, Offices and Government Buildings (Ministries & attached offices, State Government, and Public Sector Undertakings), having huge potential for savings.

·         Personnel responsible for operation and maintenance of air conditioning/cooling system may be suitably counseled to maintain such parameters without adversely affecting the comfort conditions.

·         Above guidelines may not be applicable for premises where specific ambient conditions are required e.g. health care facilities/operation theatre/Food processing installations/Data Centers, etc.

·         The consumers may also take any other appropriate measures to save energy.

·         Any deviation of such Guidelines should normally be considered with the approval of head of the organization.

The above suggestions are not applicable for winter climatic conditions.
