Globally, 1.2 billion people live without access to electricity, and another billion have unreliable access. A vibrant market has emerged for off-grid lighting products and clean energy systems, providing modern energy services to underserved communities around the world. Appliances like fans, televisions, and refrigerators represent the next phase of this market and have the potential to unlock significant additional growth. Off-grid appliances – if appropriately designed and priced – can unlock a wide range of energy services, providing off-grid households and businesses access to modern communications, cooling, and more for the first time. Highly energy-efficient off-grid appliances also create and sustain demand for off-grid clean energy systems by offering higher levels of modern energy services while minimizing the cost of supplying off-grid energy. New research supported by the Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP), a U.S. Department of Energy-led initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial, provides critical insights into this dynamic emerging market.
