Developing Energy Efficiency Technology Manuals for the Residential Lighting, Street Lighting and Agriculture Pumping
In May 2014, the International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC) was awarded a project on “Energy Efficient Lighting and Pumping: Implementation and Financing Solutions”.
The project is part of the partnership between the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) with funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and co-funding from the governments of Japan, Republic of Korea, Denmark, and Finland, and VITO-Flemish Institute for Technological Research NV, to pilot a climate technology finance center in Manila, managed by ADB, and a climate technology network secretariat in Bangkok, managed by UNEP. These pilot institutions directly address key barriers to climate technology transfer and deployment in Asia and the Pacific.
IIEC is tasked to develop financing and policy models to facilitate wider dissemination and large scale adoption of energy efficient technologies in the residential lighting, commercial/street lighting and agriculture water pumping sectors. The three areas covered under the project include:
- Energy Efficient Street Lighting
- Energy Efficient Residential Lighting
- Energy Efficient Agricultural Pump
IIEC is responsible for developing operational toolkits which will be useful for assessing options and drafting practical solutions for scaling up implementation. The toolkits are expected to support stakeholders including industry players (equipment suppliers and energy service providers), electricity utilities, regulators, financing institutions and policy makers in design and implementation of effective solutions for street lighting, residential lighting and agriculture pumping technologies.
