The European Lighting Industry Position on How to Maximise the Potential Benefits of European Policy on Energy Efficiency in Lighting January 2008
Page 2 January 2008 A presentation ELC & CELMA, together in RoMS Why we need to achieve energy efficient lighting The ELC & CELMA Joint Position on Lighting
Page 3 January 2008 ELC & CELMA, TOGETHER IN ROMS
Page 4 January 2008 European Lamp Companies Federation (ELC) collectively employ over 50,000 people in Europe annual turnover in Europe of 5 billion www.elcfed.org HID 7 Member companies HID
Page 5 January 2008 European Luminaires and Ballasts Industry (CELMA) 18 National Manufacturers Associations for Luminaires and Electrotechnical Components for Luminaires in 13 EU countries Represents more than 1000 companies (majority of small and medium-sized companies) Directly employs more than 60 000 people in Europe Generate over 12 billion Euro annually http://www.celma.org
Page 6 January 2008 ELC & CELMA, together in RoMS ELC & CELMA work together in RoMS (Roll- Out Member States), 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 more European countries
Page 7 January 2008 Working together to.. Support European governments to develop policy and other measures that deliver significant CO 2 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.
Page 8 January 2008 WHY WE NEED TO ACHIEVE ENERGY EFFICIENT LIGHTING
Page 9 January 2008 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. Lights Labours Lost – Policies for Energy-efficient Lighting. IEA
Page 10 January 2008 The current picture Over 60% of all Europes 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.

Page 12 January 2008 THE ELC & CELMA JOINT POSITION ON LIGHTING
Page 13 January 2008 The ELC & CELMA response 3 key issues: 1. EU-wide Product Standards 2. National measures to encourage renovation of existing lighting installations 3. EU-wide Lighting Design Legislation to improve light quality as well as the energy efficiency of the lighting installation
Page 14 January 2008 Overview Through its joint position, ELC and CELMA aim to ensure a quick and effective follow-up to the EUs public commitments from March 2007 on developing a low carbon economy, in particular through a 20% increase in energy efficiency by 2020. Lighting can contribute via… EU-wide product standards Renovation of existing installations EU-wide lighting installation design criteria
Page 15 January 2008 Issue 1: Product standards (I) Goal: development of Implementing Measures under the EuP Directive Timing: this is the first and quickest way to secure significant energy and CO 2 savings for new lighting products placed in the EU market Labelling: CE-marking, sole means of identification!
Page 16 January 2008 Issue 1: Product standards (II) Scope: formulated independently IMs should be formulated independently for each of the lighting EuPs (lamps, ballasts, optical systems of luminaires and control systems - standby power) technology-based categories application-independent Support for selected product technology-based categories and application-independent generic energy efficiency criteria independent of the application area IMs should contain generic energy efficiency criteria for the specific product categories listed in the Eco-profiles tables provided by ELC and CELMA, independent of the application area the products identified by the Commission will be removed from the total market! should not lead to additional requirements Luminaire optical part tables should not lead to additional requirements for lamp categories for which no Eco-profiles have been defined
Page 17 January 2008 Issue 2: Renovation of existing installations Goal: adoption of complementary national legislation that encourage the renovation of existing low performing installations, starting with street and office lighting nEEAPs under the ESD, a tool to achieve this!
Page 18 January 2008 Issue 3: EU-wide Lighting Design Legislation Goal: development of harmonized EU-wide energy saving and performance criteria for lighting installations, through authority certification of lighting designs, based on European Legislation Such rules: Would ensure the improvement of light quality whilst achieving energy savings Could be part of building codes and public procurement rules in the Member States
Page 19 January 2008 Conclusions ELC & CELMA commit to policy-makers and regulators: To assist the development of workable Implementing Measures under the EuP Directive by providing technical lighting expertise To provide assistance to drive renovation through nEEAPs through our Roll Out Member State (ROMS) network To build awareness for the need of harmonised lighting design criteria to push for larger savings in installations
