National Energy Conservation Awards 2010_Questionnaire for Office Buildings




Award for Excellence in Energy Conservation and Management


The objective of the scheme is to give national recognition to the management of office buildings who have made systematic and serious attempts for efficient utilization and conservation of energy during the years 2008 -09 and 2009 -10.


First and second prizes are proposed to be given to the management of nominated office buildings in the form of a Silver Plaque with appropriate citation on such awards as may be decided by the Ministry of Power. The performance of the nominated office buildings would be judged through a questionnaire (format enclosed) which would be evaluated by an Award Committee.

Office buildings getting the First Position for the third year in a row will be eligible for a “Top Rank Award” for that year. The Office building eligible for Top Rank Award for 3rd year in a row would be given the highest prize, namely “Excellence Award” (Instead of Top Rank Award) in recognition of its consistent performance.


The scheme is open to all OFFICE BUILDINGS, which are having connected load of 200 kW and above.

Criteria for Judging Merit

a) Evaluation of the nominations will be done in two phases, based on the Evaluation and Weightage criteria as given in Annexure-A

b) In the first phase, evaluation will be made on the basis of the preliminary information, as required in Part – I and the best 10% of the participating office buildings (subject to minimum of 4 units) from each sector would be short listed.

c) These shortlisted office buildings would then have to submit the details of the savings made and the projects implemented, as required in Part-II within 8 days from the date of intimation by BEE.

d) The members of the Award Committee or their nominees may visit participating office buildings for verification of data supplied, if felt necessary and it will be obligatory on the part of the participating office buildings to provide necessary co-operation. The management of the office building has to bear all the expenditure in this connection.

e) The Committee’s decision would be final and no appeal would be entertained.

Instructions for Filling up the ‘Award Questionnaire’

NECA – 2010 – Evaluation & Weightage criteria – Office Buildings
Sr. No. ITEM Max 50 marks
1 ENERGY SAVINGS – Electrical
Electrical Energy savings in 2009-10
% Saving in EE over the previous year 2008-09 (20 marks)
% reduction in Electric energy consumption/Total built-up area during 2009-10 over 2008-09 (20 marks)
3 % reduction in Total energy/ Total built-up area comparison with the best reported values among the participating buildings (10 marks)
Note: 1. The above evaluation and weightage criteria is common for all the Office Buildings. If due to some peculiar characteristics of the participating office buildings, the application of the above criteria may not be feasible.Therefore, Award Committee reserves the right to modify the criteria, which shall be uniformly applied to all the participating Office Buildings.

3. The office buildings having negative specific energy consumption reduction shall not
be considered for the award
4 For all the evaluation criteria, if the difference between the first and second building in the particular criteria is more than 10% in the percentage score, then the second best building will be awarded 20% less marks than that of the first unit and prorate will start from that building onward. Similarly, if the difference between second and third building is also found to be more than 10% the above methodology will be followed till the completion of the evaluation criteria of all the units
