A key objective of the en.lighten initiative is to assist interested developing and emerging countries to initiate and effectively implement their own market transformation programs towards efficient lighting. Country support activities focus on overcoming the technical and policy barriers related to national, regional and international efficient lighting market development.
The Global Efficient Lighting Partnership Program
is an unparalleled voluntary opportunity to work with en.lighten and other countries within a specific region to achieve a coordinated transition to efficient lighting. Participation in a strategic program that sets shared objectives and provides technical support will assist in identifying mutual barriers and may result in more aggressive goals for a country, while still remaining a cost-efficient exercise.
Interested countries make a dedicated pledge signaling the intent to work with en.lighten to design and implement a set of policies and approaches that will enable the transition to energy-efficient lighting quickly and cost-effectively. Emphasis is placed on an integrated approach for designing policy measures so that the transition can be sustained by the domestic market without continued external support or resources. The Center of Excellence comprised of en.lighten expert Task Forces representing over 30 organizations, provides targeted technical expertise to support the development of these policies in a manner that maximizes the time and resources required to implement viable National Lighting Strategies and coordinated regional activities.
An Efficient Lighting Toolkit will also be made available to countries and interested stakeholders by the end of this year. The Toolkit will provide comprehensive technical guidance to countries on how to transform their markets to efficient lighting. For more information click here
