Government launched Standards and Labelling Program to help consumers to make effective choice for various energy consuming appliances.  

More on the news

  • This Program has been launched by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency, under the Ministry of Power, Government of India.
  • It enables to save energy, reduce electricity consumption and also contribute to a greener planet.
  • The latest product to be added to BEE’s Standards and Labeling Programs is the Grid-Connected Solar Inverter.
  • The Program will help consumers in getting better-quality inverters which can be used as part of the solar rooftop system.
  • The event also highlights the Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT) scheme it resulted in reduction of about 110 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per annum.

Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE)

  • It was established in 2002 under the provisions of the Energy Conservation Act, 2001. 
  • Headquaters: Sewa Bhawan, New Delhi
  • Its vision is to improve Energy Intensity of Indian Economy thereby contributing towards sustainable development of country.

S&L Programme helps in reducing carbon dioxide emissions

  • S&L Programs of BEE have resulted in reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 60 million tonnes per annum.
  • Transmission and distribution losses have come down to zero and reduction in carbon emissions are huge, since energy consumed is renewable energy.

About Standards and Labeling Program for Grid-Connected Solar Inverter

  • It has been launched under voluntary phase, valid from 15th March, 2024 till 31st December, 2025.
  • The program will function as a Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) for the product covering only grid-connected solar inverter without storage, with rated capacity up to 100 kW.

Standards & Labelling Programme for solar panels

  • The programme, launched, 2023, by the Union Ministry for Power and New & Renewable Energy.
  • The Program for solar inverters aims to further optimize the efficiency of the solar PV system, so that consumers are able to assess the overall efficiency and performance of the inverter before deciding to purchase or use it.


  • This initiative serves as a catalyst for India’s transition towards sustainable energy, underscoring our dedication to a cleaner, greener future.
  • It signifies a bold stride forward in our dedication to a greener and more energy-efficient world.
  • It helps in reducing carbon dioxide emissions and in ensuring high product quality.
