Based on the situation of the Lithuanian energy sector in 1997, the idea emerged to raise awareness of energy saving issues in the residential sector in Lithuania. The main idea was to implement an advertisement campaign, revealing the benefits of energy and water reservoir saving. A five-year campaign and strategy to raise awareness of energy efficiency was set up. For the implementation of these strategy measures the ‘Taupukas’ programme was created (in English - ‘little saver’).

 ‘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.
