    BEE - Bureau of Energy Efficiency Entrance Exam

    BEE Entrance Exam 2014 - Bureau of Energy Efficiency Entrance Exam for

    the post of Energy Managers and Energy Auditors is taken by the National

    Productivity Council (NPC) on behalf Bureau of Energy Efficiency, a

    statutory body- under the Ministry of Power, Government of India. It is

    one of the most known Engineering Entrance Exams in India.

    The Bureau was established in order to produce high cadre Energy

    Managers along with Auditors that hold incredible expertise within the

    energy management, implementation and financing of the energy projects, along with

    different kind of policy analysis.

    In this national level certificate examination candidates have to get a minimum of 50% marks

    in all the papers they appear for in the certificate examination.

    Note: Only candidates with experience involving usage of energy can apply for it.

    BEE Entrance Exam importance: The passing of the National level certification examination

    is the qualification for an energy manager to be appointed or designated as Certified Energy

    Manager. For accreditation of energy auditors, certification of energy auditor may be one of

    the prerequisites besides other criterions before an energy auditor is considered for

    accreditation. It will be the accredited energy auditor who will be allowed to undertake the

    mandatory energy audit under the Energy Conservation Act 2001 and not the certified

    energy auditor.

    BEE Entrance Exam EligibilityThe eligibilty for taking these Entrance Exams for Engineering
