DescriptionVEEPL is aimed at building both technical and policy support for transition to more energy efficient public lighting in Vietnam. By increasing the energy efficiency of public lighting installed over the next 10 years, the project will significantly reduce electricity consumption by the public lighting sector in Vietnam compared to what it otherwise would have been. Reducing electricity consumption will reduce emissions of GHG from the Vietnamese electricity generation sector. Although VEEPL specifically targets public lighting (street lighting, public spaces and public buildings), the technical capacity and policies established through the project will support lighting efficiency efforts in other sectors as well. In order to remove barriers to the EE of public lighting, VEEPL is organized in 5 components: 1. policy development; 2. technical support; 3. financing; 4. technology demonstration; 5. information dissemination and awareness rising.
Implementation StatusComponent 1 Policy and regulations: i) National workshop on EEPL policy development was organized by project and VULA in August to discuss initial results of policy developments. As a result from the workshop, all policy papers are revised. Component 2 Technical Support: i) as a result from the consultation at the August workshop, 05 MEPS were revised and fed into the standard development plan of MOST in 2008. For the improvement of testing facilities, 01 set of lighting testing equipment was purchased and installed at the Institute of Material Science to serve the testing need of the manufacturers and training on testing ii) Installation of testing equipment in two laboratories were completed. The testing procedures are developed and fine tuned. Component 3 Financial support: 01 training workshop for about 40 personnel from lighting companies and financial institutes was organized to provide knowledge on financial investment in lighting projects. Component 4; Demonstration: i) Demonstration of EE lighting in school was completed successfully by RALACO. Plan to expand the demonstration in new urban areas are being developed. Component 5 Information: i) The PLIC regularly receives energy consumption reports from cities and urban centres. Project 2nd newsletter was prepared. One TV programme to promote EEPL was produced.
