Appliances

The appliances market is at a bullish high in India. A large population with increasing disposable income, easy finance options and changing lifestyles, is proving to be a keen buyer. The appliances category is also rapidly increasing thanks to the addition of new appliances. All this is impacting the energy demand in the country. This demand needs to be managed and a stringent Appliances Labelling Programme is the key to this.

Shakti works in support of this programme by aiding activities related to the prioritisation of appliancesthat must be included in the programme; facilitating techno-economic analysis of the appliances market; putting up mechanisms that will ensure that standards get ratcheted in tandem with evolving technologies; supporting the development of monitoring and evaluation systems and, investing to increase the receptivity of energy efficient appliances in the market.
