This study shows the energy conservation potential in a proposed office building situated in Mumbai, which is under warm and humid climate zone of India. The study also shows the savings in energy consumption and payback for selected types of energy efficiency measures. In this study, selected energy efficiency measures related to building envelop, HVAC and lighting systems were taken into consideration for energy conservation, to get the impact of each energy efficiency measure on energy consumption. Different operational and design related measures of HVAC systems have been studied using eQUEST-3.63b software to investigate the proposed design and operational measures for reducing energy consumption in similar type of commercial buildings. Key words: commercial building; energy efficiency; energy conservation measures; building energy performance, building energy modeling and simulation.
