Union Ministry of Power launched Chiller Star Labelling Program on energy efficiency in chillers: Details, Purpose, Highlights

Union Ministry of Power has launched Chiller Star Labelling Program to encourage deployment of energy efficient chiller systems in the country. It was launched as part of an occasion of 24th World Ozone Day and 31st Anniversary of Montreal Protocol, which will be observed on 16th September 2018.

Chiller Star Labelling Program was formulated by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). It envisages providing star rating in terms of its energy performance.

Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has developed an online registration platform for easy and expeditious approval under the Chiller Star Labelling Program.

Chiller Star Labelling Program will allow manufacturers to register online for availing appropriate star rating of chiller equipment. Based on test certificate from designated agencies and after due verification from BEE, star label on the scale of 1 (less efficient) to 5 (most efficient).

Chiller Star Labelling Program will help promote advanced technology for central HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems and will also facilitate energy efficient solutions for large commercial and industrial applications.

Chiller Star Labelling Program will also help to save more than 500 million units of electricity in 2019 along with Green House Gase's reduction of 0.5 million-ton equivalent of CO2. It will also save more than 4 billion units of electricity by 2030 with the CO2 emission reduction of 3.5 million ton.
