IAE to tie up with India for its global LED programme
11 October 2016 Current Affairs: The International Energy Agency (IAE) is going to partner with India to implement its Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA) initiative globally for energy savings. 

IAE has been impressed with performance of India’s UJALA programme in terms of vastly improving access to LED lighting while reducing their cost drastically.

The UJALA scheme is implemented by the Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a joint venture of PSUs under the Union Ministry of Power. 

The price at which EESL has been purchasing LED lights to distribute under UJALA scheme has been consistently falling over the last couple of years Along with this, production has also been ramped up to about 4 crore per month from the 10 lakh a month in 2014 to support the implementation of scheme.

Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA) scheme  :  UJALA scheme is LED-based Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP) that aims to promote efficient lighting, reducing energy consumption and energy savings.

 It was launched as National LED programme by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in January 2015. It was renamed UJALA in March 2016. Under it, every grid-connected consumer having a metered connection from their respective Electricity Distribution Company will get the LED bulbs at subsidized rates.
