Africa Solar Impact Cases Report

The aim of this document is to zoom in on individual solar projects and cases, highlighting the involvement of the different types of actors in the creation of resounding impact on local communities and individuals. To go beyond the numbers and - through the stories and experiences of lesser-heard voices - showcase the significance of solar energy development. To do that, we have selected a small number of cases across the three segments to paint a human picture of the evolving solar energy markets of Africa.

The report includes 6 cases, touching upon the off-grid, microgrid, mini-grid and utility-scale solar segments. Read about the conception of the projects, the execution and maintenance of the solar systems, and the future outlook and scalability of the projects. Download the Impact Cases Report.



Africa is quickly becoming one of the most significant regions in the global expansion of the solar PV industry. The high levels of solar irradiation and increasing amount of renewable energy-related commitments by governments in the region are just some of the factors that are sparking growing interest from local businesses and international stakeholders alike.
