Component 2: SSL LED Panel Lighting System Market Transformation Policies and Mechanisms
This project component will address the barriers related to SSL LED Panel Light market transformation policies and mechanisms for SSL LED Panel Light sustainable development. It will also address the lack of institutional mechanisms to implement SSL LED Panel Light industry and market supportive policies and regulations. The expected outcome from the outputs that will be delivered under this component is the facilitation of support and incentives to accredited SSL LED Panel Light manufacturers in the local production of quality SSL LED Panel Light products, and to LED Panel Lighting system professionals and SSL LED Panel Light product distributors/retailers in the application of SSL LED Panel Light products that are compliant with established quality and energy performance standards. To realize this outcome, this project component will comprise of the following indicative activities.
Research on Energy Saving Lamp Policies and Regulations – This will involve a comprehensive research on applicable policies and regulations in support of the local manufacturing and applications of ESLs, in general, and SSL LED Panel Light products, in particular, in the country and in other countries . While the focus will be on policies that will specifically address the policy/regulatory-issues concerning the SSL LED Panel Light industry in China, careful considerations shall be provided to the ongoing ESL-related projects in China, particularly the GEF-supported ESL projects such as PILESLAMP, and EnLighten, to avoid duplication of efforts and suggested actions, but also to enhance potential synergies and complementarity..
Development of SSL LED Panel Light Industry Development Plans – This will involve the formulation of a roadmap for the local SSL LED Panel Light industry and market that will focus on achieving the planned 20% penetration rate of SSL LED Panel Light products (particularly in the residential sector) by the end of the 12th Five-Year Plan. A medium term and a long term plan will be developed to implement the necessary actions to realize the set 20% target, and develop quality and standards-compliant SSL LED Panel Light products for both the domestic and foreign markets, respectively.
Establishment of Policy and Regulatory Frameworks for Supporting the SSL LED Panel Light Industry– This will build on the policy researches and SSL LED Panel Light industry development planning works that will be carried out in coming up with the applicable mechanisms and incentives that will be in turn be supported by appropriate policies that will be formulated. The policy framework will among others focus on the establishment and enforcement of approved policies and implementing rules and regulations on the quality and energy performance standards (that meets international acceptance) for locally produced SSL LED Panel Light products. The incentives and support mechanisms that will be considered will be based on the findings from the policy researches but may include: (1) fiscal incentives in the local production and export of locally made SSL LED Panel Light products; (2) incentives for technical innovations in the SSL LED Panel Light industry; and, (3) financing incentives.
Financing Scheme Development –Based on the findings in the policy research studies, this activity will entail the design of applicable financing schemes for SSL LED Panel Light technology innovations (including those in the value chain), financing support applications with banks and financial institutions for SSL LED Panel Light product quality improvements; and for SSL LED Panel Light products promotion .
SSL LED Panel Light Manufacturers Accreditation Scheme Development - This activity will involve the establishment and implementation of an accreditation system for local SSL LED Panel Light manufacturers (as part of the business registration requirements) that capable and eligible to locally produce SSL LED Panel Light products.
