To develop the off-grid industry, investment will need to flow to different parts of this expanding and increasingly diversified value chain. The industry is made up of a myriad of players situated at different stages of development – each with a different financing need.
Both investors and companies are highly interested in the flow of investment as well as to track whether investor appetite is changing due to the crisis. To track investments into the space, GOGLA initiated the GOGLA Deal Database. In two rounds, investments into the sector that were shared by industry respondents in interviews and/or were publicly announced in social media were collected recorded in the database. This was an important first step, informing among others the financial chapter in the last edition of the Off-grid Solar Market Trends report.
GOGLA is looking for a Consultant to help update and strengthen the 2020 deals database. Read the full Terms of Reference here.
