C-Quest Capital Malaysia Limited wanted to conduct a monitoring survey to establish the number of CFLs installed and operating under Kapurthala & Jalandhar CPA BLY project.

The Government of India has announced the ‘Bachat Lamp Yojana’ (“BLY”) on May 28, 2007 to reduce the electricity consumption by households during peak hours by promoting the use of CFLs. To increase use of CFLs in households, BLY seeks to utilize Clean Development Mechanism (“CDM”) revenues under the Kyoto Protocol to reduce the price of CFLs to a price comparable to that of ICLs. The BLY is developed under the UNFCCC’s Programme of Activities (“PoA”) framework, with the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (“BEE”), a statutory body formed under the Indian Energy Conservation Act, 2001 for promoting energy conservation and efficiency in India as the coordinating/managing entity. Under the PoA Design Document of BEE, CFLs are to be distributed in exchange for INR 15 and old, working and used ICLs.

C-Quest Capital Malaysia Limited wanted to conduct a monitoring survey to establish the number of CFLs installed and operating under Kapurthala & Jalandhar CPA BLY project and thus contracted New Concept for monitoring survey:

  • To determine the quantity of CFLs installed and operating - 60W and 100W ICLs exchanged with 11W and 18W CFLs respectively
  • To assess CFL failure rate
