India will launch a star rating system for home appliances and equipment on Dec. 14, 2005, the National Energy Conservation Day.

Initially, the rating system will be for refrigerators, tubelights and transformers, followed by a similar system for air-conditioners, televisions, microwave ovens, and DVD players.

The system, developed by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) with the International Institute for Energy Conservation, is one of self-certification by the company and rates products on a scale of one to five, five being the rating for the most energy efficient product. The program will be made mandatory next year.

While the rating system for refrigerators is ready, it will be ready for air-conditioners next year. BEE, Bureau of Indian Standards, Consumer Electronics and TV Manufacturers' Association and the consumer organization Voice will start work on a similar system for TVs, microwave ovens and DVD players.

The rating system will be updated and increased after 3 years, making companies continuously develop more energy efficient products.

"With the implementation of this system, we expect energy efficiency of refrigerators to go up 60 to 70 percent as companies will have to develop more and more efficient products to maintain and improve their ratings," Tanmay Tathagat, senior program manager, energy efficiency, IIEC, said.
