Survey of Lighting Systems in Rural Household 2009
The major objective of the survey was to obtain reliable data to develop a detailed design and implementation program for a demand side management (DSM) program based on bulk procurement and subsequent large-scale deployment of energy efficient lighting measures, primarily targeted to replace incandescent (filament ) lamps (ILs) with efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). The program is aimed to achieve the following key objectives:
i) reducing peak demand (MW) and energy demand (MWh) to address current power shortages on a cost - effective manner, and
ii) facilitating the generation of additional revenues through the associated carbon credits to be obtained through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) process.
In order to meet the above objectives, survey on lighting systems in rural area in Bangladesh with focus on use of incandescent lamps and compact fluorescent lamps have been carried out

Selection of Survey Area:
As per TOR, the survey was carried out by Atlanta Enterprise Ltd. in 36 Palli Biddut Samities (PBSs).These 36 PBSs have been selected at random throughout Bangladesh so that they become representative of the target rural population and result in a statistically robust and relevant.
The list of PBSs selected for the survey is attached in Annexure -2 of volume 1 report.
Selection of Households:
As per TOR, a total of 68 Households were surveyed in each PBS. Accordingly, 68 households were selected in each PBS so that they represent the target rural population and they also represent all the Upozillas / Thanas under the PBS. This was done in consultation with REB/PBS.

Design Pre-test and Finalization of Survey Instruments (Questionnaires)
As we know, the success of data and information collection largely depends on proper designing of the questionnaire. Keeping this view in mind, appropriate questionnaires for Household consumers were designed through proper utilization of skills and experiences especially on power sector. For preparing the study instruments, terms of reference set by GTZ, objectives of the survey and the scope of the study were also considered. Similar studies were reviewed and arranged consultative meetings in order to design the most appropriate questionnaire for survey. After designing the instruments, those were shared with GTZ and all comments from GTZ end have been incorporated in finalizing the survey instruments. The instruments were pre-tested and after due consideration of feed back from pre-test, those were finalized.
