In October 2015, IIEC was contracted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to carry out a lighting market assessment to evaluate the opportunity for harmonizing lighting standards and other policies in the ASEAN region. The assessment was conducted as part of the ASEAN SHINE initiative, which promotes higher efficiency lighting equipment in the ASEAN community through a partnership between the UNEP-GEF’s en.lighten initiative and ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE), with financial support from the European Union’s SWITCH-Asia programme and the Australian Government.
|The IIEC team assessed current and projected lighting markets in all ASEAN member states, and it is estimated that the total number of lamps installed in various end-use sectors in all ASEAN member states was around 1.9 billion lamps in 2014. The residential sector was the largest end-use sector in the region, accounting for about 69% of total lamp stock. CFLs occupy the largest share in the residential lamp stock, accounting for about 48%, followed by LFLs at 34%. Indonesia had the largest share in terms of number of lamps installed in the region, about 547 million lamps. IIEC also estimated the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction potential for ASEAN that could be achieved through the implementation of efficient lighting policy measures. This assessment is expected to support ASEAN member states in the establishment of harmonized minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and test standards for lighting products, as well as implement coordinated monitoring, verification and enforcement (MVE) schemes to ensure compliance with the standards.
As part of the assessment, a market forecasting tool called “Policy Analysis Model for ASEAN (PAMA)” was developed to project lamp stocks and shipments in each ASEAN member state up to 2030. PAMA also provides a consumer-oriented analysis and a national cost-benefit analysis of lighting policies. The model uses country-specific data and indices (such as population, GDP, per capita income, electrification and distribution rates), in combination with product-specific data (lamp shipment by types, efficacies and lifetimes), to estimate impacts from various energy efficiency policy scenarios.

The results of the regional lighting market assessment and PAMA tool were presented at the Lighting Policy and Technical Working Group Meeting, held on 26 July, 2016 in Jakarta, Indonesia. At the meeting, the Working Group finalized the list of lighting products to be considered for regional harmonization under the ASEAN SHINE initiative.
