Compact fluorescent and light emitting diode lamp sampling and testing exercise

In 2014, the UNEP-GEF en.lighten initiative collaborated with six Southeast Asian countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam) on a lamp sampling and testing exercise. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light emitting diode (LED) lamps were sampled from the national markets, under the coordination of International Institute for Energy Conservation, and shipped to the Global Efficient Lighting Centre (GELC) in Beijing, China for testing.


The exercise was undertaken as part of the Southeast Asia and Pacific Monitoring Verification and Enforcement Project, with funding from the Australian government, and a total of 80 models of CFLs and 20 models of LED lamps were sampled from the national markets and tested by GELC.


The objective of the exercise was to help stakeholders become familiar with the process of evaluating the efficiency of lamps and learn more about using product sampling and test results to improve their compliance programmes.


The results of the exercise are summarised in three separate reports, which can be downloaded by clicking on the links below:
