WHO ARE WE?
We work with leaders from governments
and corporates in three ways:
We convene key decision makers to
inspire leadership and innovation;
• We provide evidence of low carbon
success that enables ambitious action;
• We develop practical projects to scale
up and replicate transformational low
carbon solutions.
•
We operate from offices in North America,
Greater China, India and Europe.

LEDs for lighting
Saving money
• Compared to HPSV luminaires, LED luminaires can save at least 50-55% of
electricity consumption
• Long life (atleast12 years, with 70% of initial lumen output) resulting in little
replacement
expenses
incurred currently in the form of replacing the HPSV

• White light resulting in better vision
• A survey conducted in Kolkata by TCG found that drivers and pedestrians
experience brighter and clearer vision under LEDs; ladies and senior citizen feel
safer to walk under them as compared to HPSV luminaires

Interim report - WEF,
Consultation: Regional and Local Barriers
Learned very early on:
— There are already lots of LED reports, documents, and guidance notes
— Key decision in the global consultation process – ‘not to be another survey on LEDs’
— Recognition of need and approach to help address the local issues
— A goal of contacting and discussing participant’s immediate barriers to adoption
— Finding and linking end users with adopters and solution providers.
Facility to bring into the open key issues that may not be commonly raised.
The Climate Group is aiming to help ‘accelerate the decision making process’
Consultation: Common Barriers
• Recognition that every city/municipality has unique history, lighting stock, service
agreements
— Resistance to change – ie. In core lighting operations – concern of job
security
— How to make the change ? Building capacity / confidence to move forward
— Policy barriers (cf. Los Angeles / Nova Scotia / NYC / London – ‘project
champions’)
— How to develop the business case and explore finance options
— Procurement checklist  What are the Quality Thresholds 
Undertaking Trials
— Standards and warranties - what is realistic for ‘complete luminaire not just
The India Program – LED Lighting
• In 2007, HSBC supported pilot project in Kolkata by converting 273 street
lights into LED systems
• Two years of municipality-led monitoring, Evidence indicates upto 60 %
reduction in energy consumption, improved security and earning
opportunities, reduction in maintenance – saving tonnes of fossil fuel,
improving energy efficiency
• KMC has asked us to prepare a report to convert all the existing street lights
in Kolkata into LED systems (close to 300,000)
growth
• Public lighting is one amongst
various services provided by
ULBs
• ULBs are complex in their
roles and responsibilities and
structure
• Application of LED for energy
efficient lighting poses several
challenges to these ULBs
• There is a need to develop
public lighting policies and
innovative business models to
enable ULBs realize the
benefits of LED
