CDA Implements Energy-Efficiency Codes: New Regulations for Construction and Design

Efficiency Codes

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has resolved to integrate building efficiency codes into its regulations, applying these energy-efficient standards to new constructions, existing buildings, and design phases. This decision was made during a meeting on energy efficiency held at CDA headquarters, chaired by CDA Chairman Muhammad Ali Randhawa.

The meeting was attended by CDA officers and representatives from the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

Efficiency Codes

The CDA Design Vetting Committee will now consider energy efficiency factors in their assessments, guided by NEECA and GIZ. To support this initiative, capacity-building sessions will be conducted by master trainers from NEECA and GIZ to ensure CDA officers are well-versed in these guidelines.
