Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

Pakistan faces multiple challenges to its economic and social growth, which are increased by its worsening energy crisis.Thus this project aims 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 innovative and 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.

Services Provided:

  • Designing the development of a National Efficient Lighting Strategy
  • Developing monitoring, verification and enforcement (MVE) capacities in Pakistan to ensure an effective transition to efficient lighting
  • Designing a “Lighting Funding Window” in Pakistan’s Revolving Loan Fund (RLF)
  • Assessing the feasibility and option to accelerate the use of high efficiency lighting and controls
  • Assessing innovativeness, sustainability, and potential for scaling up the National Efficient Lighting Strategy
