 ‘European Efficient Residential Lighting Initiative’ (EnERLIn) was created by Universite Toulouse in France. The University is also one of the programme coordinators. An important objective of the project is to identify all possible reasons of rejecting compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), to develop good answers and then to translate them into clear and understandable statements for the non-specialists. The next step is to develop and validate functional, efficient scenarios for CFL promotion campaigns on European, national and regional levels.
