 India’s energy savings from Star-rated air-conditioners and refrigerators are beginning to add up.

Star-labeled appliance sales figures and resulting energy savings in India were reported in Verified Energy Savings Related with the Activities of Bureau of Energy Efficiency for the year 2008-09. The report was published in July by the National Productivity Council, which is allied with India’s Bureau of Energy Efficiency.

Air-Conditioners

Total Star-labeled air-conditioner sales in the year were reported to be 656,127 units. Indian consumers clearly gravitate to the less efficient, less expensive air conditioners. Sales by Star-rating were:

  • 1 Star: 94,988 units
  • 2 Star: 370,531 units
  • 3 Star: 162,848 units
  • 4 Star: 21,823 units
  • 5 Star: 5,937 units

The report estimates energy savings due to Star labeled air-conditioners at 368.9 MU, with a corresponding reduction in avoided generation capacity of 305.47 MW.

Refrigerators

Sales of Star-labeled refrigerators were:

  • 1 Star: 0 units
  • 2 Star: 4659 units
