Abstract:  The paper presents base line date for labeling residential and commercial office buildings on the basis of electrical energy consumption. The study is based on a sample of eight typical residential buildings in Bangalore and five commercial buildings in New Delhi of varying built-up areas. The overall SEC is in the range 1-3 kWh/ m2/month for residential buildings and 5-25 kWh/m2/month for commercial buildings. If only building energy consumption is considered, it is in the range 0.3-1.0 kWh/m2/month for residential buildings and 3-10 kWh/ m2/month for commercial buildings. SEC/person is in the range of 300-800 Wh/m2/person/month for residential buildings and 3-6 Wh/m2/person/month for commercial buildings. Commercial building energy intensities are higher than domestic intensities. The energy consumption (winter-summer) varies between 30-100 % peak value due to variation in ambient temperature and weather conditions.
