The Objectives of Standards & Labeling Program is to provide the consumer an informed choice about the energy saving and thereby the cost saving potential of the marketed household and other equipment. This is expected to impact the energy savings in the medium and long run while at the same time it will position domestic industry to compete in such markets where norms for energy efficiency are mandatory. The scheme was launched by the Honorable Minister of Power in May,2006.

What is Standard and Labeling -




There are two types of labels:


1. Performance/Comparative

Allow consumers to compare the energy consumption of similar products, and factor lifetime running cost into their purchasing decision. Performance/Comparative label is used in mandatory and voluntary electrical appliance. Example- Tube light, Window and split air conditioning, water heater(geyser), Ceiling Fan, Distribution Transformer etc.




2. Endorsement

Provide a ‘certification’ to inform prospective purchasers that the product is highly energy efficient for its category. Endorsement label is used for computer/laptop and office equipment.
