Through cooperation with the Electricite du Laos (EdL), IIEC is supporting the design and implementation of the ongoing Demand-Side Management and Energy Efficiency Phase 2 (DSM/EE II) Project, funded by the World Bank, to ensure sustainable energy development in Lao PDR.

In Phase II, EdL is currently addressing the residential and small business sectors through the Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) Exchange Program, which is expected to save around 18 gigawatt hours (GWh) over the next year. To raise nationwide awareness of the benefits of energy efficient lighting and household appliances, EdL has launched a campaign on television and radio including travelling roadshows in the Southern and Northern provinces to educate the general public. In the public sector, EdL is working to procure high efficiency lighting and air-conditioning system technologies needed to deliver energy savings changes in Lao's public buildings. In the residential sector, IIEC is supporting the setup of a sub-committee designated to establish the policy framework for the development and adoption of energy efficiency standards and labels for household appliances. In addition to capacity building of EdL’s DSM/EE team, an intensive training course covering energy technologies, energy auditing and Monitoring and Verification (M&V) of Energy Efficiency measures has been conducted.
