The Government of the Philippines has embarked on an energy independence and savings reform agenda, aiming at a 60% self-sufficiency level by 2010, of which a strong efficiency and conservation is a key program. As a policy direction, the Government promotes the judicious conservation and efficient utilization of energy resources through adoption of the cost-effective options taking into consideration minimizing environmental impact. The use of energy efficient lighting (EEL) is one of the programs by the government and the private sector in promoting energy efficiency. EEL lamps, such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs, replacing incandescent bulbs) or slim linear fluorescent lamps (T8 LFLs, replacing T12 LFLs), low-loss ballasts, better luminaires and high-intensity discharge lamps systems are easy to install and retrofit in commercial, industrial, government and residential buildings.
