Development of Pacific regional efficient lighting strategy under way PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday 23 September 2014, Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), Suva, Fiji –



Improving energy efficiency offers the Pacific region multiple benefits, including reduced dependence on imported petroleum fuels, increased energy security, lower energy bills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. For this reason, efficient lighting has been identified as one of the main ‘accelerators’ to achieve the sustainable energy for all (SE4All) objectives.


To support the efforts of Pacific Island countries and territories (PICTs) to establish energy efficiency standards, SPC’s Energy Programme, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) en.lighten initiative, supported by the Government of Australia, convened the inception workshop of the Pacific Regional Efficient Lighting Strategy (PELS) project this week (22–23 September) in Nadi, Fiji.


The main objective of the workshop is to determine key priorities and action areas to be included in the regional efficient lighting strategy document. The regional strategy will be further developed through a consultative approach and is expected be completed by the second quarter of 2015 for PICTs' endorsement.
