Objective and rationale, including the nature of urgent problems where applicable: The main objective of the phase-out plan for inefficient lighting in Barbados is to contribute towards reducing the cost of energy in Barbados, increasing energy security and mitigating the negative effects of energy consumption on macro economic environment in Barbados. A study conducted on the Sustainable Energy Framework for Barbados estimates that energy efficient lighting could represent about a third of the potential savings of electricity for residential, commercial and public customers. The study also revealed that energy efficient lighting technologies are among the most viable energy efficiency interventions available and also among those with the shortest payback. Although energy efficient lighting is both technically and economically viable, its uptake has been lower than expected. The phase-out plan for inefficient lighting therefore seeks to ensure that only energy efficient equipment is available on the market, while energy inefficient lighting equipment is eliminated.; Protection of the environment; Quality requirements; Cost saving and productivity enhancement
