1 1 Presentation to Electrical Leaders Forum 21 May 2009 Bryan Douglas Chief Executive Officer Lighting Council Australia

2 2 Presentation A few words about Lighting Council Relentless drive for energy efficiency Phase-out of inefficient lamps Greenlight Australia LEDs and proposed SSL Quality Scheme Other topical issues Waste, mercury Education

3 3 A few words about Lighting Council… Peak body for Australias lighting industry 60 member companies - luminaire manufacturers/suppliers - lamp suppliers - control gear manufacturers/suppliers - retailers Formed in 2001 (part of AEEMA) Incorporated as separate industry association November 2007 Recently instituted a Code of Conduct binding on all members - emphasis on supply of energy efficient, safe product that conforms to Australias regulatory requirements

4 4 Equipment and building energy efficiency firmly on Governments agenda Draft National Strategy for Energy Efficiency: This Strategy encompasses early action in the commercial and residential sectors to significantly improve the energy efficiency of new buildings from 2010 and also to phase-in mandatory disclosure commencing in This early action will be followed by major reforms to the building standard setting and rating system in 2011… Phase-out inefficient lighting products in the Australian market, commencing with incandescent globes

5 5 Lamp phase-out in Australia Government on track to ban inefficient incandescent lamps Ban on importation 1 February 2009 Ban on sale November 2009

6 6 Scope of phase-out Phase-out of inefficient lighting will apply to most lamp types: Tungsten filament incandescent lamps (including GLS) Tungsten halogen – low voltage and mains voltage Reflector & non-reflector Candle lamps, fancy round lamps and other decorative lamps

7 7 Phase 1 – Governments expectations Conventional GLS lamps effectively eliminated from Australian marketplace Lower efficiency low voltage halogen lamps to be removed from market place High quality CFLs dominate Some halogen lamps remain

12 12 Greenlight Australia Lighting Council preparing new draft Seeking ambitious target of 25% savings in first five years, 20% in second five years Proposing new measures in following areas/technologies: Lighting design Lighting controls Lamps Ballasts New rating tools to assist lighting designers, installers, consumers SSL Quality Scheme

13 13 Proposed luminaire labelling scheme (Indicative)

14 14 LEDs Will have significant impact on area lighting in next 2-5 years Great promise of efficiency and longevity Already substitutes on market for MR16s and linear fluorescent luminaires Ongoing issues - high cost, technical problems Many extravagant claims about LED performance – threaten to undermine consumer confidence and impede uptake International standards being developed but remain immature

15 15 SSL Quality Scheme Lighting Council planning industry-led, voluntary scheme backed by government Intended to provide confidence to the market that a luminaire carrying the Schemes label matches performance claims made by supplier: Luminaire efficacy Light output Measured input power Correlated colour temperature Colour rendering index Rated life

17 17 Waste issues Will impact on electrical industry Spate of announcements in recent months – SA, Victoria, Commonwealth SA announcement of concern - ban on all electrical product in landfill in 3 years - no consultation with industry on need for ban

18 18 Other issues for lighting industry Mercury Significant media attention – fuelled by - phase-out programs internationally Concerns centre on: broken CFLs in homes lamps entering landfill poisoning of Chinese miners and factory workers Anticipate Australian Government announcement this week on mercury- containing lamps
