Project Description and Summary of Services






To address barriers to the widespread use of energy efficient lighting (EEL) systems in the country, the Philippine Government, through the Department of Energy (DOE), is implementing the Philippine Efficient Lighting Market Transformation Project (PELMATP). The project has five components designed to address policy, institutional, information and financial barriers. It also addresses the appropriate waste management of used or discarded lamps that could result from the increased adoption of EEL lighting systems. The project which is being implemented over five years is supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

Component 2 EEL Applications Institutional and Technical Capacity Development Program is designed to address institutional barriers. The International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC) has been subcontracted to handle the Formulation and Implementation of EEL Leasing Model which is a sub-component of Component 2. This sub-component seeks to develop an EEL leasing scheme that could serve as a template and assist electric utilities and rural electric cooperatives (RECs) to develop and implement their own customer service programs.

IIEC’s tasks in this assignment include:

  • Study and draw lessons learned from the  implementation of the  CFL Paylight Program  of CEPALCO
  • Study the business development and marketing strategies of electric utilities and RECs
  • Design an EEL Leasing Model appropriate to the operation of electric utilities and RECs
  • In collaboration with PELMATP PMO identify an electric utility and an REC on which to test or implement the model
  • Monitor the first month operation of the leasing scheme and refine the model.
