IIEC is working with The World Bank and Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) in India to develop an Energy Efficient Street Lighting Guidance - Financing and Implementation Manual.

The aim of this project is to support the preparation and implementation of energy efficient street lighting projects in India and elsewhere, using performance contracting and other Public Private Partnership (PPP)-based delivery approaches. This project is a crucial part of an ongoing World Bank-sponsored project on Energy Efficient Urban Street Lighting (under the India Urban Cluster AAA Program) being implemented in collaboration with EESL.

The project is part of an effort to streamline and mainstream the Energy Efficient street lighting process for Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) in India. IIEC will prepare the manual and will draw upon global best practices, including practices that have been tried and proposed within India and South Asia – drawing from their failures and successes to document the major lessons learned. The activity will result in an operational toolkit which will be useful for assessing options and developing practical solutions for scaling up the implementation of large street lighting programs in cities and municipalities.The Implementation Manual is expected to be a valuable and practical resource that will support industry players (such as equipment suppliers and energy service providers) and government authorities to implement energy efficiency projects in urban street lighting.
