Energy Tip
of the Day!

Energy star rated compact fluorescent Lamp (CFL) should be the choice in household lighting applications From the extraordinary Gazette notification No. 1611/10 of July 22,2099, the display of the Energy Label  on every CFL was made mandatory. The energy label consists of star rating which varies from  1 star   to 5star higher the number of the star greater the energy efficiency of the CFL. Accordingly CFLs having an energy label with 5 star are  most energy efficient compared to the  CFLs having 1star to  4star rating. By repacking a 1star CFL with 5star CFL with 5-7 watts lower in wattage the same light out put can be gained. Purchasing a CFL with 5 star rating about 5-7 watts  can be cut down At present LED Lamp technology has improved rapidly end in parallel the price of LED lamps have come down to  an affordable Scale for the domestic consumer. Sri Lanka has already introduced performance stety and Minimum Energy performance  standers (MEPS) for LED Lamps introduce for which satisfy MEPS.

Geographic Information System

Geographic Information System

Geographic Information System (GIS) is a rapidly growing technological field that integrates geographical features with tabular data in order to assess real-world problems and make intelligent decisions.

Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority GIS (SEAGIS) is facilitates stakeholders to identify potential of energy sources such as Hydro, Wind, Solar, Biomass etc.

In addition, site verification, processing of Applications, Screening & Granting Approvals including Project Evaluation & Progress Monitoring has been now more efficient with the use of SEAGIS.

GIS is serve four stakeholder groups

               (a) Prospective Developers

               (b) Officers of the SLSEA

               (c) Project Approving Committee and

               (d) Other Stakeholder Agencies

On Line Services offered to Prospective Developers

The SEA Web Geographic Information System was launched on 24th September,2009 in order to facilitate prospective developers to find a suitable location for new renewable energy projects as well as existing developers to know their present status of their projects .

Project Profile

Project profile is presented to developers of renewable energy projects who have gained exclusive rights to develop a particular renewable energy resource through the resource allocation process. This project brief is organized into several sections, each section providing information useful to cover certain aspects of the project. On the developer’s request, SEA provides a complete project profile booklet including following layers and information at a cost of Rs 15,000.
