Potential improvements in energy efficiency exist in all building typologies. But it becomes more of a concern in energy-intensive buildings like air-conditioned office buildings and shopping complexes. The paper aims at understanding the significance of OTTV controls as a means of enhancing energy efficiency. The objectives of using OTTV are discussed. Furthermore, the parameters and component co-efficient used in its formulation are analyzed. The limitations in formulating OTTV standards are discussed. The above is substantiated by talung a base case. Its OTTV for combinations of various building materials is analyzed. Furth
