how it works

BEE Registration, short for Bureau of Energy Efficiency Registration, is a regulatory process in India to promote energy efficiency and conservation. This initiative falls under the Bureau of Energy Efficiency, a statutory body established under the Energy Conservation Act of 2001. BEE Registration primarily encourages industries and manufacturers to adopt energy-efficient technologies and practices.

Overview of BEE Registration

BEE, established on March 1, 2002, under the Ministry of Power, is dedicated to conserving energy and cutting costs in India. To achieve this mission, the Indian Government has made it mandatory for specific products to feature BEE star ratings.

Manufacturers and businesses in India can voluntarily seek BEE Registration to demonstrate their commitment to reducing energy consumption and minimizing environmental impact. One of the key aspects of this registration is the BEE Rating system, which assesses and rates appliances, equipment, and industrial units based on their energy efficiency performance.

The BEE Rating system assigns a specific number of stars (ranging from 1 to 5) to products and appliances, with a higher number of stars signifying greater energy efficiency. The labelling is mandatory for several products, including refrigerators, air conditioners, and LED lamps. Consumers can make informed choices by selecting products with higher star ratings, reducing energy bills and contributing to energy conservation.

The following products are covered under the Compulsory Registration Scheme:

Types of BEE Registration

Mandatory BEE Registration

This type of registration is compulsory and legally required for specific products. The government mandates that manufacturers comply with BEE standards and register their products to meet energy efficiency requirements.

For example, certain appliances like refrigerators, air conditioners, and LED lamps must undergo mandatory BEE registration and labelling.

Voluntary BEE Registration

Voluntary BEE registration is undertaken at the discretion of manufacturers. They can choose to participate in BEE programs and initiatives voluntarily to demonstrate their commitment to energy efficiency, gain a competitive edge or attract eco-conscious consumers.
