Eskom’s (South Africa’s electricity supplier) Efficient Lighting Initiative (ELI) programme seeks to find solutions to link household energy initiatives with other development objectives.

The objectives of the ELI project are as follows:

* The lowering of household energy costs, so that less money needs to be spent on energy, particularly by poor people
* The creation of employment and economic benefits arising from a robust, energy efficient lighting market
* The conservation and preservation of the environment through its ELI programme.
