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.

Sri Lanka National Energy Efficiency Awards

Sri Lanka National Energy Efficiency Awards

Sri Lanka National Energy Efficiency Awards is an annual event conducted by the SEA. This Award scheme is structured to have three components namely, the National Energy Efficiency Award, the Best Energy Services Company (ESCO) Award and Outstanding Energy Manager of the Year Award.

Award Categories

National Energy Efficiency Award scheme was launched by SLSEA .This scheme encompasses all the categories of organizations in the state sector and the private sector. Award winners are selected in large, medium and small categories in manufacturing, services and healthcare categories. The speciality of this scheme is that organizations are registered for the award with their initial information as the baseline data and the data will be compared with the information at the review stage. For that, specific energy consumption details are taken into consideration.

The scope of the above award scheme was enhanced in year 2011 by introducing a new award scheme namely; Best Energy Services Company (ESCO) Award. The aim of this award is to honour the efforts and contribution of ESCOs in promoting energy conservation and clean energy utilization in industrial and commercial establishments. Submissions from the ESCOs registered with SLSEA are entertained for the selection of award winners, who are chosen by considering the projects that exhibit highest annual energy savings, best return on investments (RoI), the most innovative energy-efficiency projects implemented, etc.

From 2013, it has been further broadened by adding Outstanding Energy Manager of the Year Award. The aim of this award is to recognize the energy managers who have demonstrated the outstanding leadership in driving the organization for energy efficiency improvements, conservation and management.
