Using Regression Discontinuity Models to Understand Market Transformation (Abstract Only)

Date Published: January 1, 2003     Document Type: Conference publication

During the past ten years, China has become one of the largest consumers as well as the largest exporter of lighting products. The efficiency of lighting products made in China thus has significant implications for lighting efficiency, electricity consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and sustainable development. The China Green Lights program invested some 300 million yuan to transform the domestic lighting market by increasing the supply of and demand for efficient lighting products. This study uses regression discontinuity models combined with engineering algorithms to evaluate the impact of the China Green Lights program. (Abstract only)

Interim Process Evaluation of the Efficient Lighting Initiative: 1999-2001 (Abstract Only)

Date Published: January 1, 2003     Document Type: Conference publication

This paper presents the interim process evaluation results of the Efficient Lighting Initiative (ELI), as presented in a report to the International Finance Corp, a division of the World Bank, in 2002. The paper describes how the ELI program is being implemented in seven countries (Argentina, Peru, South Africa, Czech Republic, Latvia, Hungary, and the Philippines) and summarizes key evaluation findings from program start-up and first-year activities. The purpose of this evaluation is to provide ELI management with feedback as to the operation of the program and how the various groups involved with implementation perceive ELI. (Abstract only)
