Abstract

Artificial lighting is a basic need for human wellbeing and performance when there is no access to daylight. Large populations, mostly in rural areas, depend on traditional biomass-based lighting techniques whereas in developing countries with electricity supply mostly energy inefficient electric lighting is applied. Implementation of energy efficient and smart lighting products and systems could reduce the annually increasing energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries. However, these relatively recent energy efficient and smart lighting solutions are not common in developing countries due to various barriers including a lack of awareness and information, a lack of qualified engineers, and a lack of experience in implementing, testing and maintaining energy efficient and smart lighting design.This article summarizes the education development activities carried out at six universities in Vietnam and Myanmar. In addition to education development, lighting labs were established, teachers and technical staff were adequately trained, and interaction and cooperation between higher education institutions and public bodies and industry were enforced.
