Regional progress towards efficient lighting in the semed arab region

  1. 1. Regional Progress Towards Efficient Lighting in the SEMED/Arab region Energy Efficiency Policies for the SEMED/Arab Region 15-16 April, 2013 Amman, Jordan Prof. Ibrahim Abdel Gelil Arabian Gulf University
  2. 2. Country Lighting Assessment• Estimates the savings potential of a country from the phase-in of energy efficient lighting.• These assessments consider savings potentials for • (1) the on-grid lighting market, encompassing the residential, commercial/industrial and outdoor lighting sectors, and • (2) the off-grid lighting market, in countries that have a high number of off- grid end users.• 5% of global electricity consumption could be avoided through a transition to efficient lighting• 490 Mt of CO2 savings per year • Equivalent to the emissions of more than 122 million mid-size cars • Closing over 250 large coal-fired power plants • US $210 billion in avoided investment 2
  3. 3. Benefits of Phasing out ILs in the Arab Region ● Out of the 130 countries analyzed by en.lighten18 are from the Arab region (on-Grid). ● Lighting represents about 34 % of the total electricity consumption in the Arab region ● Saudi Arabia and Egypt are the largest consumers of electricity and has the highest saving potential ● Lighting represents the highest percentage of electricity consumption in Algeria (41.3 % and Sudan (35.5%) ● Phasing out ILs in the region would save: – Nearly 37.8 Twh of electricity (an average of 5.8 % of the total consumption) – Nearly 24.8 Mt of CO2 4/7/2013 3
  4. 4. National Initiatives Govern CFLs Target ment’s replace date for commit d phase ment (million) out ILs (million USD)Egypt 18 17 2020Lebanon 7 3 2012Morocco 46.5 6 NAUAE NA 1 NATunisia NA NA 2013Total 27 4/7/2013 4
  5. 5. National Initiatives towards transition to EL:Regulations http://www.enlighten- initiative.org/portal/CountrySupport/GlobalPolicyMap/tabid/104292/Default.aspx ● Minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) – Used in Egypt for CFLs ● Mandatory labeling and certification – Mandatory labels for CFLs exist only in Algeria and Egypt. – Voluntary labels for CFLs in Lebanon ● Building codes are evolving in the region – EL has not been included 4/7/2013 5
  6. 6. National Initiatives towards transition to EL:Market-based instruments ● Fiscal Instruments and Incentives – Tax incentives offered in many countries for EE and RE projects (could be extended to CFLs) – Most countries with bulk distribution programs of CFLs have used direct subsidies ● Information, Communication and Voluntary Actions – Almost all countries are implementing public awareness campaigns to promote CFLs – Public leadership and reference projects exists in many countries (Egypt, UAE ). – The UAE’s “Make The Switch” campaign is pioneering. 4/7/2013 6
  7. 7. End-of-life treatment of used lamps ● Mercury content of CFLs is a public health concern. ● New models of ENERGY STAR-rated CFLs have mercury content levels of 1-2 mg ● Sound management of used lamps at their end-of-life should be part of the E-Waste regulations ● Initiatives planned in Egypt, Lebanon, and Morocco 4/7/2013 7
  8. 8. Monitoring Verification and Enforcement● Many countries have national standardization bodies who are ISO members.● National accreditation bodies exist in six countries.● 6 countries have national institutions to accredit laboratories● Qualified testing facilities for lamps are rare in the region● MVE capacity needs to be strengthened 4/7/2013 8
  9. 9. Manufacturing of Lamps ● Some production of ILs – need to transform production to CFLs ● The region has a limited capacity for the manufacturing of ELs. ● Mostly these facilities are in collaboration with international Lamps manufacturers 4/7/2013 9
  10. 10. Regional strengths towards transition to EL ● Commitment to energy efficiency ● A number of pioneering initiatives on efficient lighting ● Capacity for standards development, testing, and certification ● Power sector and energy pricing reform policies are underway ● Evolving green building initiatives ● Capacity for local manufacturing of lighting products 4/7/2013 10
  11. 11. Barriers and gaps to the transition to EL ● Limited political awareness about the benefits of EL in some countries. ● Lack of Minimum Energy Performance Standards ● Limited involvement of the private sector and other stakeholders ● Low level of public awareness ● Financial and cost barriers 4/7/2013 11
  12. 12. Conclusions (1/2)● Similar policy packages were used in the region – energy price reform, – a strengthened legislative and institutional framework – provision of fiscal incentives, – development of standards and labeling programs, and – public awareness programs● Five countries in the region have already distributed about 27 million CFLs to consumers● Three countries have announced target dates to phase out ILs.4/7/2013 12
  13. 13. Conclusions (2/2)● Although S&L programs exist in the region, they are missing for CFLs● Though green building initiatives are evolving, they don’t consider EL● The region has some basic capacity for local manufacture of CFLs ( need to be expanded)● The region has some technical capabilities for MVE (need to be strengthened)● Lack of sustainable end of life schemes for spent lamps4/7/2013 13
  14. 14. Policy Interventions : the Role ofGovernments (1/2) Develop integrated strategies to promote transition to EL, through: ● Setting MEPS ● Using financing schemes and fiscal arrangements to lower initial high cost. ● Using labeling schemes to disseminate information and promote efficiency ● Leading by example by using only EL technologies in their own public buildings ● Subsidizing CFLs instead of subsidizing electricity 4/7/2013 14
  15. 15. Policy Interventions : the Role ofGovernments (2/2) ● Development of regional EL mandatory testing and certification schemes ● Integrate sound management of EL products into E-Waste policies including take-back schemes. ● Join en.lighten Partnership Program to phase- out of ILs technologies (11 Arab countries have already joined) 4/7/2013 15
