The Regional Status Report on Efficient Lighting in the Pacific Island Countries and Territories was prepared by George Wilkenfeld and Associates, Energy Policy and Planning consultants, Australia for the Pacific Efficient Lighting Strategy (PELS) Project managed by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC).The report covers most of the SPC PICTs and benefitted from surveys and data collected by the Promoting Energy Efficiency in the Pacific – Phase 2 (PEEP 2) Project and the Pacific Appliance Labelling and Standards
This report reviews the status of lighting energy use and programs to increase the energy-efficiency of lighting services in the Pacific Region. It was commissioned by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) as part of a joint project with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) en.lighten initiative. The aim of the report is to examine the:
✴ efficient lighting policies and regulations in place in the region; and
✴ efficient lighting programs and projects under way.
This will be followed by the development of a regional Pacific efficient lighting strategy (PELS) which will detail the priority policies and frameworks to be implemented, identify opportunities for regional or bilateral cooperation and indicate a sustainable financing plan including the potential for public-private partnerships.
