Here in Egypt we don't have any references for the following parameters:

  1. No of People per square meter
  2. Heating set point
  3. Cooling set point
  4. Lighting Load
  5. Equipment Load (Plugins load)
  6. Heating COP
  7. Cooling COP
  8. Fresh air
  9. Infiltration

Could anyone provide me with these values according to any codes?

I think there are energy codes even in Egypt for 'Green Pyramid Rating System'. I remember doing some studies on one Cairo project in 2014, but local consultants won the project. There is an ASHRAE Cairo chapter too, so I hope ASHRAE must be involved in some kind of reference development.

Anyways, you can still follow ASHRAE 90.1 & 62.1 reference codes.
