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.
With support from the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) as part of the Sustainable Energy and Emissions Planning (SUEEP) Program, IIEC conducted a feasibility study for a pilot demonstration using LED retrofits in Surabaya to demonstrate the energy savings, emissions reduction and financial benefits that could be realized by the City Government of Surabaya (CGS). The study looked at the viability of energy efficiency (EE) lighting technologies, evaluated implementation approaches, and developed an EE implementation plan with proposed financial arrangements for street and outdoor lighting, consistent with Indonesia’s PPP framework.
In partnership with The Carbon Trust, UK and the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), IIEC-India helped design a national level EE fund for India’s industrial sector.
