New Delhi: The Bureau of Energy Efficiency said that it planned to introduce fuel efficiency norms on voluntary basis for vehicles later this year.
By 2012 car manufacturers will be expected to compulsorily display stickers - just as airconditioners now do - indicating the level of efficiency of their cars.Stickers will brandish a 1-5 star rating, that will be determined by the BEE.
Ajay Mathur who heads the bureau said that this was part of larger scheme to make a range of goods more energy efficienct.
Next would be a scheme to improve the efficiency of ceiling fans as well as separate corpuses of Rs 200 crore to fund and encourage companies that developed energy efficiency technologies.
