Off-Grid Lighting Needs And Opportunities Emphasized At UNEP en.lighten Forum

GOGLA participated in the UNEP en.lighten Global Efficient Lighting Forum (GELF) on 10 and 11 November in Beijing. The event brought together some 200 government, donor and industry representatives to discuss progress in promoting efficient lighting. As strategic partner of UNEP en.lighten on off-grid policy development, GOGLA briefed the audience, on the one hand about the 1,3 billion people that still lack access to modern lighting today, on the other about the solutions that markets are offering to address this need in efficient and effective ways. Recognizing the potential of market based off-grid solutions in national energy policies in a balanced way, is important to help develop good market environments and to create a level playing field for the off-grid lighting industry.
