United for Efficiency supports Tunisia’s policymakers and regulators to advance policies, strategies and actions for the phase-out of inefficient lighting. Emphasis is on an integrated policy approach so that a transition can be sustained by the domestic market without continued external support or resources.
LEAPFROGGING TUNISIA’S LIGHTING MARKET TO HIGH EFFICIENCY TECHNOLOGIES
The objective of this GEF-funded project is to promote the rapid transformation of the Tunisian market to energy-efficient lighting technologies, thereby reducing electrical demand and consumption and related greenhouse gases emissions.
- Revision and support in finalizing the national energy efficiency regulations for lighting minimum energy performance standards and labels
- Deliver training and technical proposal of an upgrade plan to local manufacturers on transitioning from incandescent and CFL lamp manufacturing to the production of LED lamps
- Enhancement of testing capacities of the national lamp laboratories, and technical assistance for laboratory international accreditation
- Implementing an operational framework to establish a collection scheme, recycling facilities and/or sound disposal systems, as appropriate, to ensure the sustainable end of life treatment of spent lamps
