Contribute to energy security and emission reductions through energy efficient lighting.

Activities: (2012

  • Development of a National Energy Efficient Lighting Strategy, national energy codes, standards for appliances, labeling, energy reporting, and development/enforcement of Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS).
  • Development of a Measurable, Reportable and Verifiable (MRV) system for GHG emission reductions resulting from deployment of Energy Efficient (EE) lighting projects/programmes.
  • Design and deployment of an integrated waste management system for destruction of Incandescent Lamps (ICLs) and recycling of Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) bulbs.
  • Establishment of a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) and its linkage with the active Energy Conservation Fund of the National Energy Conservation Centre (ENERCON) to develop EE lighting projects/programmes
  • National launch of a public awareness campaign on transitioning to EE lighting to educate people from all walks of life regarding the benefits of adopting timely actions relating to energy conservation and efficiency.

Social: The expected two-fold increase in the use of CFLs by low-income and lifeline consumers will lower monthly electricity bills over the 10-year lamp lifetime, reduce peak demand for electricity and create jobs.
Economic: The implementation of the actions proposed will produce energy savings equal to 5.5% of total national electricity consumption or 35.1% of electricity consumption from the lighting sector per year. This in turn will create annual savings of approximately US$ 408 million. Over 10 years, this equals approximately US$ 4 billion, corresponding to 3% of GDP. The realization of the energy savings potential in the economy will result in a 14% decrease in the projected energy deficit by year 2019. Increasing access to EE lighting will promote sustainable development by transforming the lighting sector and helping to shift Pakistan onto a low-carbon trajectory.
