Delivering The Transition to Energy Efficient Lighting in Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Outdoor Sectors in Pakistan (2015)
Pakistan faces multiple challenges to its economic and social growth, which is made worse by its energy crisis. As such, this project was developed to secure significant global climate change mitigation and environmental benefits by instituting efficient lighting policies and creating a framework for innovative financial mechanisms that promote high efficiency products. The transition to high efficiency lighting, particularly products based on LEDs and controls, would significantly reduce electricity consumption and related GHG emissions, and enable better management of peak power demand. Specifically, IIEC developed a National Efficient Lighting Strategy, including an MVE to ensure effective transition towards energy efficient lighting. A revolving loan fund, known as Lighting Funding Window was also designed as part of the project.
