What is Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE)?
BEE stands for bureau of energy efficiency. It was formed by the ministry of power under government of India. In the year 2010, government makes ratings and labels mandatory on certain products which indicate the performance of the product as well as help customers in making right choices before buying the product. The BEE rating certificate is given by the bureau of energy efficiency which shows the BEE compliance level of the company.
Higher BEE status level indicates stronger competitive position of a company whereas weaker competitive position of a company has a lower level of BEE compliance.
Every company should aim to achieve the highest BEE rating annually in order to increase the market share of its product.
Why it is important for your company to have a BEE certificate?
A company needs a BEE certificate in order to prove their BEE status in the market as well as to capture the maximum share for its product. The star rating on various products like Fan, AC, refrigerator, water heaters, pumps etc. is mandatory as it provides you information about energy consumption, capacity, warranty etc. Star rating depends upon energy consumption. Higher the energy consumption, lower the star rating whereas lower the energy consumption, higher the star rating of the product. It helps the company in both regulatory & promotional activities. This certificate is valid for a year and it needs to be renewed every year.
