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.

Sector Specific Programs

Sector Specific Programs

Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority is striving to accomplish its objective through two thrust areas, namely renewable energy development and energy efficiency improvement. These two thrust areas were further divided into number of programmes and projects, in which the energy efficiency in industrial and commercial sectors will be addressed in the Sector Specific Energy Management Programme (SSEMP). Under this programme, Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority foresee to assemble capacity building programmes in target industrial and commercial sectors where such interventions are utmost necessity.

The identified target sectors are region specific, means that Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority would set priority to a specific sector which has the highest socio-economic yield in the considered region (Ex. Tea Industries in Central and Uva Provinces). Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority will then implement capacity building programmes, and if necessary, will follow-up the same with an impact assessment programme. For the year 2015, Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority expects to develop such capacity development programmes focusing the Central, Southern and Uva provinces in the sectors of Tea, Garment, Hotels, Fisheries / Ice making industries and Agriculture Sector.
