ECOWAS Status Report - Energy Efficiency in Cooking

| 48 The higher cost of energy-efficient lamps, compared to current less-efficient alternatives, is one of the largest obstacles to full deployment. In addition, technical challenges as well as a lack of information and societal acceptance of efficient lighting technologies have yet to be fully reconciled.22 To overcome these challenges, policies (see Chapter 4) or initiatives to introduce energy efficient lighting are active in the majority of ECOWAS Member States, although implementation varies widely by country. Various Member States have introduced programmes to distribute energy-efficient lamps to overcome the barriers to market uptake.23 (See Table 10.) Most programmes are designed to distribute compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) for residential and/or commercial lighting; however, more-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) lamps are also being introduced in select markets, such as Nigeria.24 Mali has also introduced a pilot, efficient street lighting programme, which aims to install 15,000 demonstration projects.25 FIGURE 15 | Projected Electricity and Cost Savings from Efficient Lighting in ECOWAS Member States TABLE 10 | Energy-Efficient Lighting Initiatives in Selected ECOWAS Member States Source: see endnote 23 for this section.
