Building Energy Code of Pakistan (1990)

The National Energy Conservation Centre (ENERCON), Planning and Development Division was requested by the Environment and Urban Affairs Division, to come up with a Building Energy Code, as an addendum to the Building Code of Pakistan.

This Code gives minimum performance standards for building windows and openings, heating, ventilating and airconditioning (HVAC) equipment and lighting. Though mostly based on American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standards, every effort has been made to ensure its applicability in our buildings. In accordance with the Building Code of Pakistan, which divides Pakistan into five climatic zones, standards have been provided for each zone.
