Home >> Impact


The impact working group has developed a set of metrics that allow for sector wide harmonized calculation and thus aggregation of impact for solar lights. The impact framework also forms part of the official IRIS catalogue. Going forward, the group seeks to strengthen the framework and add metrics that cover the impacts generated by larger systems, such as solar kit and solar home systems. To ensure the work of the group is relevant to the entire sector, it invites all stakeholders to participate in the group – from impact investors, to distributors, manufacturers, donors and academia.
