Energy Efficient LightingAQuick, Practical and cost-effective way to save energyAn introduction to the European Lighting Industry’s Roll Out Member States (ROMS) Programme
Our agenda today • About us • Setting the scene • Overcoming the obstacles - What can be done? • How can we help you?
European Lamp Companies Federation (ELC) • 7 Member companies HID HID • collectively employ over 50,000 people in Europe • account for 5 billion Euro European turnover • www.elcfed.org
European Luminaires and Gear Industry (CELMA) • 18 National Manufacturers Associations for Luminaires and Electrotechnical Components for Luminaires • Represents around 1200 companies (majority of small and medium-sized companies) • In 14 EU countries • Directly employ more than 60 000 people • Generate around 10 billion Euro annually • http://www.celma.org
The lighting industry ROMS (Roll Out Member State) Programme The first joint lighting industry national outreach programme on energy efficiency • Currently, one of few such joint industry programmes in Europe • Currently operating actively in 12 countries and soon operating in 27 (+2) European countries
Working together to • Support European governments to develop policy and other measures that deliver significant CO2 emission reductions through increasing the uptake of energy efficient lighting. • Help governments to meet their National and European targets in a quick, practical and cost effective way. • Help to identify the barriers to change and assist end users to overcome these barriers. • Work with a range of stakeholders (our value chain, NGOs, retailers etc) to develop and communicate user friendly information to end consumers on how to achieve savings through energy efficient lighting technology.
The EU’s new climate goals Not just hot air… Background • Political changes in the EU and outside are making aggressive climate policy a reality • High energy prices and political concerns over energy producing states has made energy a “Head of State” issue • As Europe looks for a new vocation, energy policy is the leading contender, making it a Presidential issue New targets • 20% Emission Reduction by 2020 • 30% if others make similar pledges • 60-80% emission reduction by 2050 • 20% Energy Efficiency by 2020

Lighting – a significant consumer of electricity • Lighting consumes 14% of all electricity consumption within the EU and 19% of global electricity consumption International Energy Agency • “Lighting requires as much electricity as is produced by all gas-fired generation and 15% more than produced by either hydro or nuclear power”. Light’s Labour’s Lost – Policies for Energy-efficient Lighting. IEA
The current pictureOver 60% of all Europe’s lighting = inefficient • 1/3 of street lighting in Europe still based on old, outdated and inefficient technology • current switch over rate is 3% per year - meaning it will take another generation to upgrade • average life-time of lighting installation = 40 years • new technology available, more energy efficient and better quality light • More than 75% of office lighting systems still inefficient • current switch over rate is 7% per year • average life-time of lighting installation = 25 years • huge differences in efficiency between old and new systems (energy saving potential 30-80%) • Approximately 85% of lamps currently in EU homes are energy inefficient.

The factsEstimated savings * Figure is based on the latest (conservative) industry estimates for the a total switch to energy efficient street, office, industry and domestic lighting in the EU (27). Detailed savings potential figures from each EU member states are in the process of being calculated by the ROMS programme. ** Figure courtesy of EUROSTAT - Statistics in Focus: "Electricity prices for EU households and industrial consumers on 1 January 2007“ *** Figure courtesy of the International Energy Agency - 0.37kg CO2/kWh - CO2 EMISSIONS FROM FUEL COMBUSTION (2006 Edition) - II. 61
A triple win! • WIN for the environment through achieving significant reductions in emissions of CO2 . • WIN forsocietythrough improved and innovative energy efficient light sources in the work place and at home. • WIN for the economy through delivering more jobs and growth from innovation, financial savings to government, businesses and individual citizens from lower energy costs.
Budgets • Budgets geared towards short term costs rather than long term savings • Who pays? Many private and commercial users (people in rented accommodation, offices, small companies) do not pay directly for the buildings’ energy use therefore no sense of responsibility • Lack of awareness of the cost-effective savings potential of energy efficient lighting technology
Free riders Poor market surveillance systems mean that sub standard products enter onto Europe’s lighting market This undermines consumer confidence in energy efficient lighting technology.
Overcoming the obstacles What can be done?
MOST EFFICIENT LIGHTING PRODUCTS AND SYSTEMS LEAST EFFICIENT LIGHTING PRODUCTS AND SYSTEMS The Lighting Industry Strategy Stimulate DEMAND of most efficient products 1.Public awareness/ education 2.Building regulations and codes 3.Green Procurement 4.Financial incentives (e.g. VAT) 5.Financial discincentives (e.g. Green Taxes) Objective Increase the uptake of energy efficient lampsin the EU 1. Minimum Energy Performance Standards for lamps 2. Amended CE Label for energy efficient lamps 3. International standards and voluntary agreements (e.g. CFLi quality charter) Restrict AVAILABILITY of least efficient products
MOST EFFICIENT LIGHTING PRODUCTS AND SYSTEMS LEAST EFFICIENT LIGHTING PRODUCTS AND SYSTEMS European legislative tools to support strategy • End Use Energy Services Directive (ESD) • Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) Stimulate DEMAND of most efficient products Objective Increase the uptake of energy efficient lampsin the EU Restrict AVAILABILITY of least efficient products • Eco-Design Directive (EUP) • Implementing measures on Street, Office and Domestic Lighting • Labelling Directive
The Opportunities (1) • EU Member States are required to establish 3 national energy efficiency action plans (NEEAPs) under theEnergy End-Use Efficiency and Energy Services Directive (ESD). • The European Commission and national policy makers are currently formulating minimum energy performance standards for Street, Office and Domestic lighting products. These will eventually becomeimplementing measures under theEUP Directive
The Opportunities (2) • The Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD) – that aims to ensure that building standards across Europe placed a high emphasis on minimising energy consumption will be revised in 2009. • It is widely recognised that “market-based instruments” such as green taxes or reductions on value added tax (VAT) can help get the prices of ‘green goods’ - like energy efficient lighting - right. • In 2007, the European Commission will propose further guidance to strengthen Green Public Procurement (GPP) in the EU. They will also be debating whether GPP should be compulsory for public procurement or remain indicative.
How can we help you? • Help you develop policies and initiatives to support the market transformation to more energy efficient lighting and deliver significant CO2 emission reductions in a quick, practical and cost effective way • Provide technical information about energy efficient lighting - alternatives, savings potentials, procurement guidelines etc • Help to identify the barriers to change • Work with a range of stakeholders (our value chain, NGOs, retailers etc) to develop and communicate user friendly information to assist end users to overcome these barriers. • Provide information and best practice examples from our colleagues in Europe and share information on key developments
Some questions • What market transformation programmes/ measures/ policies initiatives are currently in place for lighting? • In homes • In businesses • In the public sector • How recent European initiatives (ESD and national action plans, EUP, EPBD) being developed at a national level? • Is lighting a key element of your national action plan on energy efficiency? • Are you currently working on your national position on the EUP implementing measures for lighting? • Will you be representing your member state on the EUP regulatory committee? • What kind of information would you find useful from our industry? • Are you interested in initiatives from elsewhere in Europe? • How do you prefer to receive information?
