Kuwait

Energy Conservation Code of Practice (R-6)

Legislative
Law
Passed in 1983
This code sets the minimum requirements for efficient energy use in new and retrofitted buildings through specific standards for insulation, restricting glazing areas, minimum ventilation rate, performance rate of Air Conditioning systems, restricting cooling power demand per unit area. It is estimated that by 2001 Kuwait achieved a power saving of KWD1.5 billion (USD 5.1 billion) from various reductions.

The subsequent amendments extended the scope of its application by including buildings across diverse typology and use as well as by proposed progressive and stringent standards in order to reduce the buildings peak load as well as energy consumption requirements.
