The Power Ministry Friday launched an ambitious programme on energy efficiency in chillers that consume more than 40 per cent of total energy in commercial buildings.
The move can save more than 500 million units of electricity in 2019 along with reduction in green house gas emissions, a Power Ministry statement said.
The ministry intends to encourage the deployment of energy-efficient chiller systems, that are used widely in industrial processes.
The Chiller Star Labelling Programme has been formulated by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). It envisages providing star rating in terms of its energy performance. Initially, the programme is launched on voluntary basis and will be valid up to December 31, 2020. Read more
