2016 China will phase out the incandescent lamp road map October
A few days ago, the National Development and Reform Commission announced the 'China's road map for the elimination of incandescent lamps (Draft for comments) ', It is planned to completely eliminate incandescent lamps for general lighting in China by 2016. This means that incandescent lamps with a history of more than 130 years will slowly fade out of people's vision. Chen Yansheng, president of the China Lighting Appliances Association, said that the road map for the elimination of incandescent lamps is the overall plan for when to completely eliminate incandescent lamps and how to eliminate them. The final draft of China's roadmap for the elimination of incandescent lamps will be officially released on October 1 this year. The reporter learned that the draft proposed: from October 1, 2012, it is forbidden to sell and import incandescent lamps for general lighting of 100 watts or more; From October 1, 2014, it is forbidden to sell and import incandescent lamps for general lighting with 60 watts or more; According to the energy efficiency standards, it is forbidden to produce, sell and import low-efficiency halogen tungsten lamps whose light efficiency is lower than the energy efficiency limit value; From October 1, 2016, it is forbidden to sell and import incandescent lamps for general lighting of 15 watts and above. Among them, other types of incandescent lamps such as reflective incandescent lamps, spotlights, decorative lamps, and special-purpose incandescent lamps are not included in the elimination range. China is a major producer and consumer of incandescent lamps. The output and domestic sales of incandescent lamps in 2010 were 38. 5% respectively. 0. 5 billion and 10. 0. 7 billion. According to estimates, China's lighting electricity consumption accounts for about 12 of the whole society's electricity consumption. If all the incandescent lamps in use are replaced with energy-saving lamps, it can save 48 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, equivalent to reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 48 million tons. Phasing out incandescent lamps is not only conducive to accelerating the technological progress of China's lighting appliance industry and promoting the structural upgrading and optimization of the lighting appliance industry, it will also make positive contributions to achieving the 12th Five-year energy conservation and emission reduction targets and responding to climate change. According to Li Kewei, engineer of Fangyuan mark certification group product certification Co. , Ltd. , in order to cope with climate change, many countries have introduced action plans to eliminate inefficient lighting products. For example, Japan and Canada plan to ban the sale of incandescent lamps by 2012; The United States gradually banned the sale of inefficient incandescent lamps from January 2012 to January 2014; 2009- In 2012, the European Union phased out 100 W, 75 W, 60 W, 40 W and 25 W incandescent lamps respectively in five phases, and banned the sale of September 2009 W traditional bulbs since 100, since 2012, traditional bulbs with all wattage are disabled. In response to the trend of eliminating inefficient lighting products in the international community and further promoting China's green lighting project, the National Development and Reform Commission, the United Nations Development Programme and the Environment Fund jointly launched China's project of phasing out incandescent lamps and accelerating the promotion of energy-saving lamps in 2009. However, some experts in the industry said that there are still many difficulties in gradually replacing incandescent lamps with efficient energy-saving lamps. Such as energy-saving lamps products quality still uneven; Some lighting fixtures are not suitable for energy-saving lamps; At the same time, incandescent lamps are still attractive in the vast rural areas at low prices. The draft for comment shows that there is not much time left for the transformation and upgrading of incandescent lamp enterprises. The reporter learned that many incandescent lamp enterprises have realized the necessity of developing efficient lighting projects and explored the way of enterprise transformation on the basis of sticking to the original city, however, most enterprises are still in the early stage of high-efficiency lighting. The transformation training program for incandescent lamp manufacturers has also been launched. The project is a sub-project of phasing out incandescent lamps and accelerating the promotion of energy-saving lamps in China. It is led by Fangyuan mark certification group product certification Co. , Ltd. and jointly implemented by China Standardization Association, it is mainly aimed at compiling training materials for managers, technical backbones and production workers of incandescent lamp production enterprises, and carrying out different forms of technical training activities, it will also organize efficient lighting enterprises to help incandescent lamp production enterprises and conduct on-site operation training to promote the smooth transformation of incandescent lamp production enterprises.
