Example text

There have also been many positive experiences with energy efficient lighting policy in less developed countries. CFL subsidy programmes in Brazil, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Martinique and the Philippines, among others, have had major impacts on the average efficiency of residential lighting and have contributed to the reduction of system peak-power loads. Programmes to improve the energy efficiency of LFLs have been successfully implemented in countries such as Thailand, Mexico and China. In general, there has been less activity in the commercial sector and most developing countries do not have building energy codes.

Performance requirements should be updated regularly (at 3- to 5-year intervals) to reflect changes in life-cycle costs. 2. Adoption of mandatory building codes, or other regulations, that set maximum lighting power density limits for all building types. e. g. through excessive lighting density. In the majority of IEA countries specific lighting requirements are either not yet in place or only apply to indoor lighting of newly constructed non-residential buildings. Policy-makers should consider the establishment of requirements where none exist, the broadening of current requirements to encompass all building types including residential buildings and major retrofits of existing buildings, and the establishment of requirements for outdoor lighting.

Although there are similar cost-effective energy-savings potentials in all the world regions examined5, the per-capita benefits are highest in OECD countries, where lighting consumption is greatest (reaching USD 219 in North America, for example). By contrast, the magnitude of cost-effective savings as a proportion of per-capita income will be greater in non-OECD countries. Since by definition implementing LLCC lighting saves end-users money, the global average cost of avoiding CO2 emissions through these measures is estimated to be negative, at USD –161 per tonne of CO2.
