Soon, you will be able to know how energy efficient your mobile phone charger is. The Power Ministry is preparing to introduce energy labelling system for mobile phone chargers, as part of its efforts to promote energy conservation. “We are working on introducing star (energy) labelling system for mobile phone chargers. It will be voluntary (for the makers of chargers) in the beginning and later, we plan to make it mandatory,” a senior Power Ministry official said.
The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), under the Power Ministry, implements the Standards & Labelling programme. The energy efficiency labelling is aimed to reduce energy consumption of appliances. A top BEE official said that energy efficiency labelling for mobile phone charges would be introduced “relatively soon”.
