CLASP serves as the leading international voice and resource for appliance efficiency policies and market acceleration initiatives. Since 1999, CLASP has worked in nearly 100 countries, collaborating with key stakeholders to design and implement high-impact policies and programs that catalyze markets for efficient on and off-grid products that deliver a higher global standard of living for everyone. From international collaborations to local markets, we draw on best practices and leading technical and policy expertise to help decision makers identify and implement the most appropriate and cost-effective policies and market interventions. CLASP is based in Washington DC, and has offices and teams in India, Kenya, Europe, and are establishing a permanent presence in Indonesia to serve our growing portfolio of projects and programs in Africa, Europe, Latin America, and South and Southeast Asia.
CLASP works at the national level in multiple countries in Southeast Asia to support the design and implementation of energy-efficient policies and programs and related market transformation activities. CLASP operates at the regional level to convene policymakers and other key stakeholders in ASEAN to leverage best practices, catalyze markets, and harmonize test standards, policies, and compliance frameworks.
The Government of Indonesia, through the Direktorat Jenderal Energi Baru Terbarukan dan Konservasi Energi (EBTKE Kementerian ESDM) is eager to expand its energy efficiency standards and labelling (S&L) programme. Currently there are two minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for compact fluorescent lamps and room air conditioners, respectively. MEPS for refrigerators, rice cookers, fans, and electric motors are pending final approval before they can enter into force. MEPS for washing machines, water pumps, and LEDs are currently under development.
The prioritization of products for MEPS and labelling in Indonesia is challenging because data and information on the appliance market is limited or non-existent, and therefore accurate savings estimates cannot be derived and used as the basis for product selection, MEPS levels, and compliance effort.
A market study for lighting products is critical to provide quality data to support appropriate and robust standards and assess the potential impacts of S&L. Currently, energy savings from existing and proposed MEPS for lighting products and many common household appliances and equipment in Indonesia cannot be estimated accurately. This study will provide this information, enabling informed decision making and realistic energy saving calculations.
CLASP is seeking a contractor to conduct a comprehensive market study on lighting products in Indonesia.
Scope of Work
The Contractor will be responsible for successfully executing the following activities and tasks as part of the study. Execution of all activities and tasks must be conducted in close consultation with EBTKE ESDM and CLASP.
Task 1: Comprehensive market assessment
Indonesia’s national annual sales volumes for the set of lighting products listed shall be assessed for a period of 8 years, from 2010 to 2018. These data shall be used to develop an estimate of the product stock in 2018. The consultant shall research the rates of new growth, refurbishment and replacement as proportions of sales. The consultant shall discuss market trends including the shift to more efficient technologies. A practical data set shall also be provided with information on lamp prices, electricity tariffs, the consumer price index and the discount rate.
The Contractor will collect the following data from stakeholders engaged in the Indonesian lighting market, including manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers and other experts such as utility DSM program managers and government officials. These data should be collected through desk research, interviews and retailer visits. The data to be collected should look at the overall lighting market of Indonesia and assess the following:
- Total size of the market in terms of volume and value;
- stock in 2018
- sales for 2010 through 2018
- Characterize the supply chain, visualizing the flow of product into and within Indonesia and identifying the key institutions and players at the key nodes in the flow diagram such as government, suppliers, retailers, designers/architects, etc.
- Lamp categories shall include (but are not limited to) the following:
- CFL – integrally ballasted
- CFL – non-integrally ballasted
- LED – non-directional
- LED – directional
- T12 linear fluorescent
- T8 linear fluorescent
- T5 linear fluorescent
- LED linear tube
- LED planar fixture
- HID – mercury vapor
- HID – high pressure sodium
- HID – metal halide
- LED – street / area lighting
- LED – other (describe)
- Projected sales for the coming three years, with a percentage breakdown of new growth, refurbishment and replacements
- Percentage of product imported for each of the lamp categories in most recent year available
- Review of lighting manufacturing in Indonesia, including company names, location, product produced and company history / technology development
- Data for an LCC calculation gathered on a common (representative) lamp for each of the lamp categories, including:
- common application
- operating hours in that application
Key Milestones and Deliverables
- Inception report, detailing the approach and methodology for the data collection market assessment.
- Interim report, detailing progress on the data collection
- Excel spreadsheet, including the data collected in Task 1
- Draft final report, encompassing all of the data analysis, recommendations, and qualitative observations from Task 1
- Final comprehensive report, responding to the comments provided by CLASP on the draft final report
The project is expected to commence in March 2019 and be concluded by July 2019.
