Abstract: The study, conducted in composite climate of India, exhibits improvement in energy efficiency of a conditioned building block with the use of energy conservation measures (ECMs) recommended by National Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC). In first part of it, subject building model was individually applied with five ECMs and two combinations of these ECMs by using constant thermostat settings. Similarly in second part of the study the same was done with adaptive thermostat settings. Sensitivity analysis showed that the effect of ECMs get reduced with increase in building footprint and internal loads. Analysis of thermal comfort in an unconditioned building using same set of ECMs was also carried out to see improvement in comfort hours.
