Introduction: Voluntary Product List for BEE Registration
The Bureau of Energy Efficiency ensures that the household electrical products are in accordance with the published guidelines and standards by the bureau. In May 2006 the Ministry of Power launched the star labeling program which covered a total of 30 different electrical products which were further bifurcated into 2 categories. One product category consists of 10 products under mandatory registration, for which the manufacturer, trader, importer has to undergo the registration process as a mandatory requirement. The second category consisting of 20 products falls under voluntary registration.

The main objective of the Bureau is to ensure that the electrical products that are in the Indian market are highly energy efficient and the end consumer gets a choice before buying. With the label placed on the product, the consumer gets to know the energy efficiency of the product by seeing the stars on it. The label acts as an energy efficiency guide from which the user can identify various details of the product. More the stars on the label the higher its energy efficiency is. The less the stars on the label, the less energy efficient the product is and more energy will be consumed making it a burden on the consumer’s pocket.
However, the 5 star rated products are costlier as compared to 1 or 2 star rated products. But if we talk about the long-term cost-saving, the 5-star product will save way more as compared to 1 or 2 stars.
Also, almost every alternative year the Bureau revises the criteria of star rating for each product to make them more and more energy-efficient for the end consumer. And to remain in the race, the manufacturers have to ensure that they timely do necessary R&D and further do changes in their product to comply with the revised criteria of star rating.
Below mentioned is a prime example of a star rating label of a room air conditioner which depicts all the details which are mentioned on the label and which are visible to the consumer. Also, as per the bureau, it is mandatory for the manufacturer to affix the star rating label product both on the packaging and the product itself.

|A tyre (American English) or tyre (British English) is a ring-shaped component that surrounds the rim of a wheel to carry a vehicle's load from the axle to the ground while also providing grip on the terrain over which the wheel travels. Most tyres, including those for automobiles and bicycles, are pneumatically inflated structures with a flexible cushion that absorbs shock as the tyre rolls over difficult terrain. Tires offer a footprint, referred to as a contact patch that is designed to match the vehicle's weight to the bearing strength of the surface it rolls over by applying a bearing pressure that does not cause the surface to deform unduly|
A lithium-ion battery, often known as a Li-ion battery, is a rechargeable battery in which lithium ions travel from the negative electrode to the positive electrode via an electrolyte during discharge and then back again during charging. The positive electrode of a lithium-ion battery is made of an intercalated lithium compound, while the negative electrode is usually made of graphite.
Li-ion batteries have a high energy density, little memory effect (with the exception of LFP cells), and a low self-discharge rate. Cells can be made to emphasise either energy or power density. They can, however, be a safety problem because they contain flammable electrolytes, which can cause explosions and flames if damaged or incorrectly charged.
An air compressor is a pneumatic device that converts power (from a motor, diesel, or gasoline engine, for example) into potential energy stored in pressurised air (i.e., compressed air). An air compressor increases the pressure of a storage tank by forcing more and more air into it using one of several methods. The air compressor turns off when the pressure in the tank reaches its engineered top limit. The compressed air is then stored in the tank until it is needed.
The compressed air's energy can be used for a variety of purposes by harnessing the air's kinetic energy as it is released and the tank depressurizes. When the tank pressure drops below a certain level, the air compressor kicks in and re-pressurizes the tank.
|Ultra-high-definition television (also known as Ultra HDTV, Ultra HD, UHDTV, UHD, and Super Hi-Vision) consists of two digital video formats with a 16:9 aspect ratio: 4K UHD and 8K UHD. NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories proposed them first, and the International Telecommunication Union later defined and authorised them (ITU). It is a digital television (DTV) standard that succeeds high-definition television (HDTV), which succeeded standard-definition television (SDTV) (SDTV).|
|A freezer (which is frequently a section of a refrigerator) is used to keep items frozen between 25 and 10 degrees Fahrenheit for usage within a few weeks or months at most. A deep freezer operates at substantially lower temperatures, frequently exceeding 20 degrees below zero in residential units and even lower in commercial units, but always below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Extreme cold is used to quickly freeze food to prevent freezer damage from ice crystals accumulating in the product and to keep nutrients better and longer. Foods kept in a deep freezer can last several times longer than those kept in the freezer of a refrigerator, and it is often a stand-alone appliance.|
|A light commercial air conditioner is a single and three-phase non-ducted single split with fixed and variable speed air-conditioner with a rated capacity of 10.5 kW up to and including 18.0 kW of the vapour compression type that is manufactured, imported, commercially purchased, or sold in India, as defined by IS 1391 (Part 2):2018 with all amendments.|
Solar water heating (SWH) is the process of heating water with the use of sunshine and a solar thermal collector. To give solutions in various climates and latitudes, a range of designs are available at variable costs. SWHs are commonly employed in both residential and industrial settings.
A sun-facing collector warms a working fluid, which is then stored for later use. SWH can be active (pump) or passive (non-pump) (convection-driven). They either use solely water or a combination of water and a working fluid. They are heated either directly or by the use of light-concentrating mirrors. They can run on their own or in combination with electric or gas heaters. Mirrors can concentrate sunlight into a smaller collector in large-scale setups.
|A microwave oven (also known as a microwave) is an electric oven that heats and cooks food by exposing it to microwave-frequency electromagnetic radiation. In a process called as dielectric heating, this causes polar molecules in the meal to rotate and produce thermal energy. Because excitation is rather consistent in the exterior 25–38 mm (1–1.5 inches) of a homogeneous, high water content food item, microwave ovens heat foods fast and efficiently.|
|A chiller is a machine that uses vapor compression, adsorption refrigeration, or absorption refrigeration to remove heat from a liquid coolant. After that, the liquid might be routed through a heat exchanger to cool equipment or another process stream (such as air or process water). Refrigeration produces waste heat as an essential by-product, which must be discharged to the atmosphere or recovered for heating purposes for greater efficiency. Compressors used in vapor compression chillers can be of a variety of sorts. Hermetic scroll, semi-hermetic screws, and centrifugal compressors are the most prevalent today. The chiller's condensing side can be either air or water-cooled. The chiller is frequently cooled by an induced or forced draught cooling tower, even when it is liquid cooled.|
A diesel generator (DG) (sometimes known as a diesel genset) is a device that generates electricity by combining a diesel engine with an electric generator (typically an alternator). This is an example of an engine generator. Although most diesel compression-ignition engines are designed to run on diesel fuel, certain models have been converted to run on other liquid fuels or natural gas.
Diesel generator sets are used in regions where there is no access to the power grid, as an emergency power source if the grid fails, and for more complex applications such as peak-lopping, grid support, and power grid export.
A power inverter, often known as an inverter or invertor, is a piece of power electronics that converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) (AC). The frequency of the generated AC is determined by the equipment used. Inverters are the polar opposite of "converters," which were massive electromechanical devices that converted AC to DC in the past.
The design of the specific device or circuitry determines the input voltage, output voltage and frequency, and overall power handling. The inverter does not generate any electricity; instead, the DC source provides it.
Monoset Pumps are one of the most commonly used agricultural equipment due to their inexpensive cost, ease of manufacture, and ease of maintenance.
The advantage of a Monoset pump is that the pump is installed on the prime mover's extended shaft, i.e., the pump and prime mover are mounted on the same shaft, which is why this configuration is known as a monoset pump.
This pump is likewise a centrifuge, but it has the advantage of being more efficient and requiring less maintenance than a connected centrifuge since mechanical transmission loss due to coupling is avoided, and there is no risk of non-alignment.
|A printer is a computer device that creates a permanent representation of visuals or text, usually on paper. While the majority of output is human readable, bar code printers are an example of a printer's wider application. Printer kinds include 3D printers, inkjet printers, laser printers, thermal printers, and air printers, among others.|
An electrical ballast is a device that is connected in series with a load to regulate the amount of current flowing through it.
The inductive ballast used in fluorescent lamps to control current through the tube, which would otherwise increase to a destructive level due to the negative differential resistance of the tube's voltage-current characteristic, is a well-known and commonly used example.
The intricacy of ballasts varies tremendously. They can be as simple as a resistor, inductor, or capacitor (or a combination of these) linked in series with the lamp, or as complicated as the electronic ballasts used in CFLs and HID lamps (HID lamps).
|A laptop, also known as a laptop computer or notebook computer, is a tiny, portable computer featuring a screen and an alphanumeric keypad. Although 2-in-1 PCs with a detachable keyboard are frequently marketed as laptops or as having a laptop mode, they typically have a clamshell form factor with the screen mounted on the inside of the higher lid and the keyboard mounted on the inside of the lower lid. Laptops are suited for mobile use because they can be folded shut for traveling. Its name originates from the fact that it was deemed practical to use while sitting on a person's lap. Laptops are now employed in a range of settings, including the workplace, education, gaming, web browsing, and personal entertainment.|
|A washing machine (also known as a laundry machine, clothes washer, washer, or just wash) is home equipment that is used to clean garments. Dry cleaning (which uses alternative cleaning fluids and is performed by professional businesses) and ultrasonic cleaners are two examples of equipment that use water. Laundry detergent, either liquid or powder, is added to the wash water by the user.|
|A gas stove is one that uses flammable gas such as syngas, natural gas, propane, butane, liquefied petroleum gas, or another flammable gas to power it. Cooking stoves used solid fuels like coal or wood before the invention of gas. In the 1820s, the first gas stoves were developed, and in 1836, a gas stove factory was formed in England. This new cooking technology had the benefit of being simple to control and switch off when not in use.|
|A ceiling fan circulates air by using hub-mounted revolving blades positioned on the ceiling of a room or space. Ceiling fans are usually electrically driven. They efficiently cool humans by boosting airspeed. Fans, unlike air conditioners, do not lower ambient temperature or relative humidity, but they do have a cooling impact by assisting in the evaporation of sweat and increasing heat exchange by convection. Due to friction and waste heat from the engine, fans may add a little amount of heat to the room. Because cooling air is thermodynamically expensive, fans consume substantially less energy than air conditioning.|
Agriculture water pumps are the most efficient irrigation machines. Pumping water from the source to the agricultural field is an important element of their job. Pumps can be used for a variety of irrigation methods, including drip, sprinkler, and hosepipe irrigation.
There are several different types of fuel-operated water pump devices on the market. Diesel, petrol, kerosene, and electrically propelled water pump machines are just a few of the options. They are chosen based on the budget, the size of the land, the availability of water, and the power sources required.
Domestic use, farm irrigation, agriculture use, submerged pump in fountains, wells, sumps, and water tanks are all examples of water pump applications.
|The electric current in the rotor required to produce torque is obtained via electromagnetic induction from the magnetic field of the stator winding in an induction motor, also known as an asynchronous motor. As a result, an induction motor can be built without any electrical connections to the rotor. The rotor of an induction motor might be wound or squirrel-cage type.|
