Agency:Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency - Equipment Energy Efficiency Program

The Equipment Energy Efficiency Program currently has three long term strategies to clearly articulate government policy and to provide a road map for reducing energy use in that area. One of these strategies is the Lighting Strategy 2002-2012. In 2005, Australian governments and the Australian lighting industry committed to a target of reducing the energy consumption of lighting by 20% by 2015. Greenlight Australia provided a framework for reducing energy consumption from Australian lighting over the ten-year period. Greenlight Australia covered the major lighting technologies with the exception of low pressure sodium and induction lighting. Given the size of the Australian lamp market, the plan did not consider options which relied on driving new development in lamp technology and focused instead on lamp substitution and technical development of control equipment and luminaires and improved lighting design. The plan covered lighting in the residential, commercial, industrial and public lighting sectors, and excluded vehicular, indicator and special use lighting.
