Low Voltage Smart Power and Appliance (LVSPA) Study

India, though achieved 100% electrification of households, still faces issues of reliability and quality supply in semi-urban, rural, and remote areas. The emerging market for Low Voltage Smart Power & Appliances (LVSPA), that integrate distributed solar and Li-Ion battery storage with weak grid along with modern energy efficient DC appliances, offers a viable pathway for efficient and reliable electricity services in weak grid areas. Our study on LVSPA market in India has indicated positive prospects for the sector in ‘weak grid’ areas. LVSPA has the potential to unite off-grid and weak grid customers in Africa and Asia with a common technology base.
