Standards and Labeling programme

The Bureau of Energy Efficiency initiated the Standards & Labeling programme for equipment and appliances in 2006 to provide the consumer an informed choice about the energy saving and thereby the cost saving potential of the relevant marketed product. The energy efficiency labeling programs under BEE are intended to reduce the energy consumption of appliance without diminishing the services it provides to consumers.

The scheme is invoked for 21 equipment/appliances including 10 for which it is mandatory. The other appliances are presently under voluntary labeling phase. The estimated savings from these labeling programmes have been about 12000 MW since 2007.
