Primary tabs

This toolkit includes key implementation/operational aspects, such as economic analysis and financial analysis (including carbon financing), elements of program design, methodologies and survey instruments for market assessment and potential, procurement guidelines, technical specifications, bidding documents, consumer surveys, awareness campaign information, environmental and safety issues related to CFLs.

As operational experience in designing and implementing large-scale, energy-efficient lighting programs using CFLs is being gained through projects sponsored by the World Bank and others in various countries, the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) of the World Bank initiated an activity in 2008 to help practitioners benefit from these experiences.
The objective is to develop good-practice operational models and templates or toolkits to help scale up the replication of large-scale, energy-efficient lighting programs. The overall goal of this toolkit is to review and synthesize the critical operational (design, financing and implementation) elements, including those related to carbon finance and GEF synergies from the experience of the Bank and other organizations, together in a user-friendly web-based format. The project is addressing CFL based programs primarily for the residential or small commercial markets.
This web-based Toolkit is supported by the Report - Designing and Implementing Large Scale Compact Fluorescent (CFL)-Based Residential Energy Efficiency Programs: Approaches, Design Issues, and Lessons Learned.
