stipulated vide its Table 6.8.1A and the high energy optimization needs of the jurisdiction.
This also reiterates that under no circumstances would the EER be less that the ASHRAE
stipulated values.

2. It is a well-known fact that HVAC systems consume up to 75% of the building energy
consumption especially during summer. These basic EER requirements in conjunction with
integrated design principles and other adequate green measures taken during design and
construction stages of the project would greatly enhance the operational sustainability of the
facility through efficient performance of the HVAC systems.

a) The above tables provide prescriptive criteria through which a development is expected
to comply with the minimum requirements specified therein.
b) While the table indicates the minimum level, it does not discourage / restrict the
stakeholder in seeking higher levels of performance.
c) It is strongly suggested the consultants undertake building energy simulation to
demonstrate improvement in building performance by optimizing various factors.
d) It is inherent that significant importance is to be attached to the performance of the villas
based on the actual utility and requirement which exceeds the basic requirement set by
the prescriptive approach.
