VEEPL 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.
