This report presents the findings of our study that analyses the residential building stock and the applicability criteria of ENS, as defined by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). The study carried out under the SHEETAL project is funded by CIFF. The report features the assessment of city jurisdiction area in ten million-plus cities across India covering the five climatic zones, conducted to gauge the housing trend dominating the urban landscape. The study highlights the predominant building typology of the identified sample plots, the area shares of each housing typology of the identified plots in the scope of ENS. The report also assesses the spans of ENS applicability based on the existing sampling of the residential building stock.

This report puts forth a suggestive mechanism in the document which may help ULBs, concerned city authorities to identify local factors and modify the scope of ENS accordingly and implement the code.
