The ENERGY STAR® program was established in 1992 by EPA to provide simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions about energy efficiency. Since 2009, EPA and the Department of Energy have been working together to implement the program.
Since 1992, ENERGY STAR® and its partners helped American families and businesses save more than 4 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity and achieve over 3.5 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions, equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 750 million cars. In 2018 alone, ENERGY STAR® and its partners helped Americans avoid $35 billion in energy costs.
EPA and DOE determine the criteria for energy efficiency in a wide range of products. The products that meet these criteria can display ENERGY STAR® symbol. Moreover, every year the best-in-class products that meet a tighter set of criteria are recognized as that year’s ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient products. Read on below for details of these two symbols.
What is the significance of an ENERGY STAR® symbol on a refrigerator?
If all refrigerators sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR® certified, the energy cost savings would grow to nearly $700 million each year and 9 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from more than 870,000 vehicles.
With best in industry features and the ProSmart Inverter Compressor, all Beko refrigerators are ENERGY STAR® certified so you can be sure that you’ll be caring for your wallet and the environment at the same time.

What does “ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient” mean?
Products that meet a tighter set of criteria are recognized as the Most Efficient of ENERGY STAR® for that year. ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2020 recognition criteria for the refrigerators are:
- The product must be ENERGY STAR® certified.
- The product must have an Annual Energy Consumption of less than or equal to 637 kWh per year.
- The product (With the exception of top-freezer models) must be at least 20% more efficient than federal energy efficiency requirements.
This means, ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient refrigerators are approximately twice as energy efficient than ENERGY STAR® certified models. It does not get better than that!
Several of Beko refrigerators are recognized as the Most Efficient of ENERGY STAR® 2020. Click here to see ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2020 Beko refrigerators.
