Super-Efficient Appliances Can Enable Expanded Off-Grid Energy Service Using Small Solar Power Systems

Analysis commissioned by the Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP) initiative reveals that highly efficient direct current (DC) appliances have the potential to dramatically increase the affordability of off-grid solar power systems used for rural electrification in developing countries by reducing the size of the systems required. When super-efficient appliances are used in off-grid solar power systems, the total cost of providing off-grid electricity services can be reduced by as much as 50%.

Promoting Energy Access through a Quality Assurance Framework for Isolated Mini-Grids

The Global LEAP initiative is supporting the development of a quality assurance framework for isolated mini-grids that will address both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) mini-grids and be applicable to renewable, fossil-fuel, and hybrid systems. It will define standard technical categories and uniform operational elements for mini-grids, and it will preserve flexibility by accounting for the different levels of service that are appropriate for different tiers of end-user needs.
