This manual has been developed to present a concise set of options and policy suggestions for countries and interested stakeholders on promoting more efficient lighting. It provides best practices and case studies from programmes throughout the world and addresses technology, policy, consumer and environmental protection issues as well as climate change. This toolkit has been conceived as a means to promote an integrated policy approach. This ensures that areas sometimes overlooked in national phase-out programmes are considered and implemented to support a national efficient lighting strategy. An integrated policy approach encompasses: minimum energy performance standards; supporting policies; monitoring, verification and enforcement; and environmentally sound management.
