Lao Public Sector Buildings Go Energy Efficient
Under the Demand Side Management/Energy Efficiency (DSM/EE) Phase I Project funded by the World Bank/GEF, the DSM Cell of Electricite du Laos (EdL) with technical assistance from IIEC has successfully implemented low-cost energy efficiency measures in 4 public sector buildings in Vientiane, capital of Lao PDR. The initial monitoring results show 5-10% saving with less than 3 years payback. The success of these energy efficient measures was proclaimed to all ministries and public sector agencies in Lao PDR through an official launch of the public sector awareness campaign, organized on April 29th, 2008 at Lane Xang Hotel in Vientiane.
The launching event was opened by H.E. Somboun Lachasombat, Deputy Minister of Ministry of Energy and Mines. EdL’s General Manager, Mr. Khammany Inthirath, and the World Bank’s Senior Energy Specialist, Mr. Jie Tang, also gave welcome remarks in the event. The official launch was attended by more than 50 representatives from ministries and public sector agencies in Lao PDR. Following the event, DSM Cell will continue the implementation of low-cost energy efficiency measure and the awareness campaign in close coordination with all ministries and government agencies.
