Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

The power sector in many World Bank Group (WBG) client countries is under severe stress as a result of increasing demand, and an inability to increase supply due to financial, environmental and technical barriers. Therefore energy efficiency remains as important as ever to the World Bank and its client countries, especially in view of universal concerns over global energy security, competitiveness, and environmental protection. Although energy efficiency can alleviate pressures in all these areas, realizing large-scale energy savings is a significant challenge for the WBG’s client countries.

 

The WBG has been particularly active in responding to the growing demand for residential lighting programs as a means of reducing energy use, easing peak demands, mitigating environmental impacts, and easing the energy cost burdens to consumers. Since 1994, the World Bank and its Energy Sector Management Assistance Program have supported the design and implementation of energy efficient residential lighting programs to improve demand-side efficiency in developing countries. The CFL Experience is a toolkit that captures these experiences.
