In September 2013, the IIEC was awarded the Demand Side Management and Energy Efficiency Phase 2 (DSM/EE II) Project by the Electricite Du Laos (EDL). This project is part of a grant from the World Bank to the Government of Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR).

Based on the successful design and implementation of pilot DSM activities and projects as well as the action plan developed in Phase 1 by IIEC, EDL requested support from World Bank for Phase 2 in order to scale up the DSM activities and projects at a country level.

Therefore, under DSM/EE II, IIEC will be tasked with:

  • Implementation of a comprehensive Public Sector EE Program,

  • Capacity Building of New DSM Cell Staff and Energy Coordinators
  • Design and Implementation of Consumer Awareness and Behavioral Program
  • Design and Implementation of EE Appliance Standards and Labeling Program
  • Assessment and Implementation of Pilot DSM Program Options for Agriculture, Commercial and Industrial Sector
  • Upgrading of the Energy Use Database

The large scale distribution of CFLs nationwide is due to commence in October 2013 in the Southern provinces and in November 2013 in the Northern part of Lao PDR.
