The Department of Energy (DOE) together with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) will conduct Mid-Term Review Mission of DOE’s CFL Distribution under the Philippine Energy Efficiency Project’s (PEEP) National Residential Lighting Program (NRLP).
The Mission will review progress of project implementation; identify actions needed to ensure that the implementation proceeds smoothly; and review current issues. This will be led by Renalyn Padilla, Florian Steinberg, Urban Development Specialist, together with Marites Ortega, Associate Project Analyst/ Mission Member, and Sohail Hasnie, Gene Peralta, Carmen Ricerra from ADB
Allan G. Bacudo, Senior Science Research Specialist, and Michelle Angela Q. Vita, Science Research Specialist I, have been designated by the PEEP-Project Management Unit (PMU) Director, Undersecretary Loreta G. Ayson, to represent the PMU in the conduct of inspection and appraisal of the CFL distribution in Cagayan de Oro, Davao City , and Zamboanga City from March 2 to 5.
The CFL Distribution Program is part of the NRLP, an ADB-supported government project which initially allocated 5 million CFLs to residential consumers in Metro Manila, CALABARZON, Bulacan, Cebu City , Davao City , and Cagayan de Oro City. The project intends to save about 1300 MW of the peak demand by replacing high power-consuming incandescent bulbs (IBs) with energy efficient CFLs. The ordinary IB uses more electricity to produce light compared to CFL. A 60-Watt IB could be replaced by 15-Watt CFL with the same light output. CFLs also last up to10,000 hours, which is 10 times longer than IBs. (DOE/PIA-ZC)
