Progress Toward Outcome MoWP proposed in Feb 2016 to hire a PMO adviser under L2553 to help prepare and implement the plan for the program support component, including procurement of the lamp waste management facility (in process).
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs
Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Ongoing.

1. CFLs: Original target date moved due to delayed procurement, pre-shipment CFL inspections, and CFL media campaign; and unavailability of incandescent lamps to be replaced. As of 15 Jan 2015, 87% of CFLs have been distributed to households. In Jan 2016, PEPCO followed up the remaining CFL distribution with four DISCOs.

2. Consumer awareness: CFL media campaign implemented from December 2013 to June 2014. The campaign was completed with reduced scope.

3. Lamp waste management: Target revised to 2018 which is beyond Loan 2553's closing date. Procurement to commence after the new PMO is on board.

Target still feasible but with revised schedule.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Based on the IEE (Supplementary Appendix I of the RRP), the National CFL Project (Loan 2552/L8246) is Category B. A key environmental risk is lamp waste accumulation. To avoid this risk, the Program Management Support Project (Loan 2553) provides for a lamp waste management facility. In general, there are no potential significant adverse environmental impacts that warrant specific environmental monitoring.
Involuntary Resettlement The Tranche 1 projects neither entail land acquisition nor economic or physical resettlement.
Indigenous Peoples The Tranche 1 projects will not affect indigenous peoples.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

To support the investment program preparation and the Roadmap preparation, the Government established the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Consultative Group (EECCG) chaired by the Planning Commission and comprising Secretaries of EAD, Ministries of Finance, Water and Power, Petroleum and Natural Resources, Environment, Industries, the National Energy Conservation Center, PEPCO, power and gas utilities, Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority, Hydrocarbon Development Institute, Pakistan Council for Industrial and Scientific Research, and development partners. EECCG provided strategic guidance into the program design and later in implementation to ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of the project's outcome.

The Pakistan EEIP Baseline Domestic Lighting Survey was conducted to support the design of the National CFL Project. The survey aimed to determine the existing patterns of lighting device use and lighting habits across different electricity consumption tiers in the residential sector of the country, and to ensure the eligibility of the program for Clean Development Mechanism. The survey involved 3,253 domestic customers in 58 major areas (districts, tehsils, 53 town committees, and cities) across the eight distribution companies (DISCOs), and the Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC). The survey sample was distributed using pro-rated domestic customer distribution patterns of the nine utilities across each electricity consumption tier. The details on the survey methodology and results are in the PPTA Consultants' Final Report.

During Project Implementation EECCG will continue its strategic guidance role. The Ministry of Water and Power and PMU are coordinating with other stakeholders during implementation.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services International and national consultants to be recruited following ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants, using the quality- and cost-based selection method. The consultants would (i) manage the Investment Program, (ii) conduct feasibility studies for subsequent tranches, (iii) help with implementation and M&E for the National CFL Project, (iv) help comply with post-PDD CDM requirements, and (v) support capacity development. Three individual consultants (Energy Efficiency Expert, Auditor/Validator, and Logistics Expert) were engaged to help implement the National CFL Project.
Procurement Goods and works to be procured following ADB's Procurement Guidelines, and in consultation with Agence Francaise Developpment (for contracts jointly financed by AFD). The CFLs were procured through ICB (goods) using ADB's one-stage, one-envelope bidding procedure. The CFL communication campaign was procured through NCB (goods). The lamp waste management facility will be procured through ICB (design, supply, and install). Shopping will be used to purchase goods less than $100,000.
