Labelling of electric appliances plays a major role in increasing the demand for energy efficiency. The energy efficiency of appliances and the efficient use of appliances are the two major contributions for energy efficiency.
Typically, the Appliance Energy Labelling Programme uses one or more of the following complementary tools to improve the energy efficiency performance of appliances and equipment under the clauses 35 (d) and (e) of the Act:
The programme has initially addressed the Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) and the energy labelling of CFLs are successfully in operation. Ceiling fans were then addressed, and the labelling programme is expected to launch in the next few months. For LED lamps a Minimum Energy Performance label has already been introduced and is on a voluntary basis.
Regulations on mandatory labelling requirements of LED lamps are expected to be gazetted within the next couple of months. A voluntary labelling programme for computers is expected to be introduced in early 2019.
Other appliances such as tubular fluorescent lamps, ballasts, electric motors, refrigerators, room air conditioners and LED panel lights are also addressed under the energy labelling programme.
