Electricite du Laos (EdL) is moving forward with their first ever nationwide energy efficient lighting program for the residential sector through which inefficient incandescent light bulbs will be replaced with high quality energy efficient Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs). The residential energy efficient lighting program is a component of the Demand-Side Management/Energy Efficiency (DSM/EE) Phase II Project,funded by the World Bank. EdL is also planning to retrofit 50 large public sector buildings in Vientiane Capital with energy efficient lighting and air-conditioning technologies.

The DSM/EE Project in Lao PDR aims to reduce domestic electricity consumptions and the primary targets include the public and residential sector. These savings also enable Lao PDR to generate more revenue from electricity exports to neighbouring countries. A conservative estimation shows that EdL could save more than 10 GWh annually through the implementation of the abovementioned DSM/EE activities. IIEC has played an active role in supporting EdL to design their DSM/EE activities and also provide technical assistance in bulk purchasing of CFLs and procurement of energy efficient equipment for public sector buildings.
