ASEAN Regional Lighting Market Assessment

In October 2015, IIEC was contracted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to carry out a lighting market assessment to evaluate the opportunity for harmonizing lighting standards and other policies in the ASEAN region. The assessment was conducted as part of the ASEAN SHINE initiative, which promotes higher efficiency lighting equipment in the ASEAN community through a partnership between the UNEP-GEF’s en.lighten initiative and ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE), with financial support from the European Union’s SWITCH-Asia programme and the Australian Government.
The IIEC team assessed current and projected lighting markets in all ASEAN member states, and it is estimated that the total number of lamps installed in various end-use sectors in all ASEAN member states was around 1.9 billion lamps in 2014. The residential sector was the largest end-use sector in the region, accounting for about 69% of total lamp stock. CFLs occupy the largest share in the residential lamp stock, accounting for about 48%, followed by LFLs at 34%. Indonesia had the largest share in terms of number of lamps installed in the region, about 547 million lamps. IIEC also estimated the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction potential for ASEAN that could be achieved through the implementation of efficient lighting policy measures. This assessment is expected to support ASEAN member states in the establishment of harmonized minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and test standards for lighting products, as well as implement coordinated monitoring, verification and enforcement (MVE) schemes to ensure compliance with the standards.

As part of the assessment, a market forecasting tool called “Policy Analysis Model for ASEAN (PAMA)” was developed to project lamp stocks and shipments in each ASEAN member state up to 2030. PAMA also provides a consumer-oriented analysis and a national cost-benefit analysis of lighting policies. The model uses country-specific data and indices (such as population, GDP, per capita income, electrification and distribution rates), in combination with product-specific data (lamp shipment by types, efficacies and lifetimes), to estimate impacts from various energy efficiency policy scenarios.

The results of the regional lighting market assessment and PAMA tool were presented at the Lighting Policy and Technical Working Group Meeting, held on 26 July, 2016 in Jakarta, Indonesia. At the meeting, the Working Group finalized the list of lighting products to be considered for regional harmonization under the ASEAN SHINE initiative.

LED Street Lighting Retrofit Project in Surabaya, Indonesia

With support from the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) as part of the Sustainable Energy and Emissions Planning (SUEEP) Program, IIEC conducted a feasibility study for a pilot demonstration using LED retrofits in Surabaya to demonstrate the energy savings, emissions reduction and financial benefits that could be realized by the City Government of Surabaya (CGS). The study looked at the viability of energy efficiency (EE) lighting technologies, evaluated implementation approaches, and developed an EE implementation plan with proposed financial arrangements for street and outdoor lighting, consistent with Indonesia’s PPP framework.
Surabaya is the second largest city in Indonesia and it has good coverage of street and outdoor lighting services. The City of Surabaya had about 75,000 luminaires in 2014, and the majority of which are high pressure sodium (HPS). The operating costs of street and outdoor lighting including new installation and maintenance in Surabaya nearly doubled over the past five years.
IIEC supported Surabaya to evaluate the pilot tests of LED technologies, seen as short and long term options for energy efficient street lighting in the city. To date, more than 1,500 LED luminaires have been installed along main traffic routes and major parks in the city. The successful implementation of the pilot phase will allow for the CGS to leapfrog to the large-scale implementation phase. The citywide investment to transform all street and outdoor lighting in Surabaya to LEDs will result in annual electricity and maintenance cost savings of about US$5-$7 million after 2020.

Developing an Industrial Energy Efficiency Fund for India

In partnership with The Carbon Trust, UK and the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), IIEC-India helped design a national level EE fund for India’s industrial sector. The new National Industrial Energy Efficiency Fund (NIEEF) is a sub-fund under the National Clean Energy Fund (NCEF). The NIEEF defines how NCEF resources can be deployed to support a range of energy efficiency technologies on their journey from development to deployment. The IIEC-India team has been working with a variety of stakeholders—including government agencies, industry, financiers, technology providers, and energy service companies—to ensure that the new fund will be effective at transforming the Indian energy efficiency market.

The NIEEF is initially focused on industry (both large companies and SMEs) but can be extended to other sectors in the future. The fund also may be combined with other financing sources, such as international climate finance instruments. The draft, high-level design of the NIEEF was completed during the first phase of the project, which ended in April 2016. During Phase 2, the design will be presented to the NCEF Inter Ministerial Group, and the project team will develop more detailed design features for the new fund. In August, the IIEC and the Carbon Trust organized half-day roundtables in Delhi and Mumbai with representatives of industry and financial institutions, respectively, to help finalize the NIEEF design strategy.

Lessons Learned from Energy Assessment and Training Activities in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM)

IIEC was contracted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)’s Multi-Country Office (MCO) to conduct a series of energy audits and a training program in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). The audits, which were carried out in five public and commercial building sites in Pohnpei State, were designed to identify opportunities to improve EE and to help FSM develop long-term strategies for the implementation of EE projects. Activities included: (1) Preliminary energy audits (PEAs) in five buildings; (2) detailed energy audits (DEAs); (3) design and implementation of energy saving schemes; and (4) capacity building of personnel from the Department of Energy, Ministry of Resources and Development (DOE-MRD).
The demonstration of energy saving schemes in the selected sites is expected to be replicated in three other Micronesian States (i.e., Chuuk, Yap, and Kosrae) in the near future.

Evaluation of HSF Water Conservation and Climate Change Training of Trainers Program in Rajasthan

IIEC-India recently completed an evaluation study for the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) on its water conservation project and climate change Training of Trainers (TOT) program for rural Rajasthan. The TOT program was designed and executed in four phases through 2012 to 2015 with particular focus on training elected woman representatives (EWRs) and future women leaders.

The goal of the program evaluation was to appraise the impact and effectiveness of the TOT program in terms of fulfilling the programme objectives. The evaluation also aimed to provide recommendations for ensuring wider replication and grassroots-level impacts of the TOT programme. IIEC concluded the study in May 2016.

The study concluded that though the training programme was relatively successful in enhancing the understanding of water conservation, climate change and gender aspects, continuous follow up mechanism post the completion of the programme is extremely crucial to sustaining impact. Women interviewed during the evaluation, expressed a need for greater handholding in the future as well to maintain the momentum. It was also emphasized that the target audience could also be expanded to include other women in the villages in addition to the elected women representatives. This is very crucial to ensure wider awareness. Establishing the link of the trainings with on-going Government of India schemes and programmes was also found to be missing link for now.
