Mr Iyer,

The article succinctly highlights the massive strides the WBG has made in energy efficiency. As the Bank invests further, it is worth considering the life cycle assessment (cradle to grave analysis of carbon footprint) of products manufactured in the energy sector. For example, when 'millions of people turned in incandescent light bulbs in return' for CFLs, how do you deal with such sub optimal/inefficient products that are already in the ecosystem (thereby influencing the carbon footprint)?

The propagation of energy efficiency should also be in tune with the manufacture of energy efficient/look carbon products. I would like to know how the WBG influences such policies in areas where such norms are not legally enforceable.

But above all, thank you for making a difference to the energy and environment dynamic of our planet. Cheers!
