Establishing a Monitoring, Verification and Enforcement system (MV&E) to promote Efficient Lighting products
As part of their role in the UNDP/GEF funded Market Transformation Program in Russia, our staff are developing a pilot programme for state procurement of lighting products.

We have provided an overview of efficient lighting MV&E programmes in various countries. For these, we have provided a critical evaluation for our Russian colleagues to enable them to identify the most cost effective methods for monitoring their market, verifying the levels of compliance and for enforcing the applicable energy efficiency regulations.

This had led to identifying the key elements of the structure of a would-be national MVE regime for state procurement, including justified choices of voluntary and mandatory components of the MV&E system, identification of the main stakeholders in Russia, their responsibilities and the possible interactions with each other.
