Household adoption of energy-efficient lamps in Sri Lanka

Household adoption of energy-efficient lamps in Sri Lanka

Pacific and Asian Journal of Energy 9(1): 93-102

The paper tests the statistical validity of various hypotheses on consumer-level barriers to the adoption of FLs (fluorescent lamps) and CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) in Sri Lanka. The adoption of CFLs is affected by inadequate information and risks and uncertainties associated with its use. The lack of cognitive skills is an additional hindrance in the case of CFLs.
