In 2022, the transport system of India accounts for 18% of the total energy. It is estimated that by the calendar year 2030, if the industry keeps following current trends, then the country would require as much as 200 MTOE of energy.
Currently, the country relies on crude oil imported from mainly Iraq and Saudi Arabia, which eventually makes India helpless to the unsettled inflammatory crude oil prices. A major share of the energy is required by the Electric Vehicle Industry. Electric vehicles use energy that is stored in batteries.
Established in March 2002 by the Government Of India, The Bureau Of Energy Efficiency aims to form several schemes and programs that result in conservation and efficient use of energy in India. Star Rating Program is one of the major subcomponents that resides under the Bureau Of Energy Efficiency.

What are Star Labeling Schemes For Lithium-ion Packs and Systems?
The Star Rating Program rates the energy systems and the battery packs based upon their life cycle, energy consumption, battery efficiency as per the Basic Matrix Group. These are divided further on a scale of 1 to 5, each implying the minimum and maximum battery pack efficiency.
|Star Level||Min Battery Pack Efficiency (%)||Max Battery Pack Efficiency (%)|
