Supporting Financial Performance Measurement in the Off-Grid Solar Industry

The World Bank Group's Lighting Global Program and GOGLA have been working to enhance data use and harmonization of metrics for financial performance measurement for off-grid energy companies. The objectives of the work are to enable companies to improve their operations, optimize their business models, and facilitate finance into the sector. The work has been ongoing since 2016 and owes substantial credit to contributions from investors, companies, and development partners provided through stakeholder consultations and engagement with GOGLA membership.
