The government of India will begin labeling appliances with an energy efficiency rating. The National Energy Labelling Programme will commence in July and will be administered by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) of the Ministry of Power.

The voluntary program will apply to frost-free refrigerators and tubular fluorescent lamps at the outset. In future months, the program will be phased in for other appliances: direct-cool refrigerators by September, electric motors by October, air-conditioners by November, and ceiling fans by December.

The guidelines released by the BEE, Energy Efficiency Labels: Details of Scheme for Energy Efficiency Labeling, detail the label verification, challenge testing, enforcement process, and requirements for independent testing facilities as it relates to frost-free refrigerators. The refrigerator label will display the refrigerator star rating of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest level of energy efficiency. The Star Rating is a range of energy efficiency (kWh/year) arrived at by calculations included in the Guidelines.

The refrigerator program is designed with increasingly stringent energy efficiency requirements. The first level of efficiency requirements lasts through Dec. 31, 2008. The second level of efficiency requirements lasts from Jan. 1, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2011. The third level of energy efficiency requirements lasts from Jan. 1, 2012 through Dec. 31, 2014.

A refrigerator qualifying as a 5-star efficiency appliance in 2006, for example, will only qualify for a 2-star rating in 2012.
