Sustainable growth in the off-grid energy access market can only be achieved by ensuring that quality products and services are not jeopardized by low quality and counterfeit products.

The technology working group aims to work on enhancing product quality assurance to support market development and increase the access of quality products in the marketplace. International testing procedures, standardization of performance definitions and elimination of counterfeiting practices are priority areas. Currently, the main focus is on working with the Lighting Global program on a future structure for quality assurance, as these are being transferred out of the Lighting Global program by mid-2017.

Future roles for the technology working group include promotion of research and innovation and protection of intellectual property rights as well as an extension of activities into larger Solar Home Systems and DC Appliances.

GOGLA members can access member-only documents, including workplans and meeting summaries, on this page in our member section.
