In the face of an escalating electricity demand, Peru faces a shortage ofcapital to invest in the necessary increase in power generating capacity. Meanwhile, a substantial and cheaper resource exists in terms of improvements in the existing and future use of electricity. The title study illustrates this with the proposed replacement in Peru of one million incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). The volume evaluates the conservation potential of one million CFLs for managing the rapidly increasing electric energy and peak demand in Peru. The analysis is undertaken from the viewpoint of the national economy, the consumers and the utilities. The studies indicate that the potential benefits are indeed very large, but can only be realized when CFL programmes are carefully formulated and backed at high level by all actors involved. 10 figs., 17 tabs., 11 refs., 3 annexes
