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%.

Global LEAP Off-Grid Appliance Market Survey

Global LEAP Off-Grid Appliance Market Survey

This document presents the results of a Global LEAP survey of energy access professionals, reporting on the appliance products that they think are likely to inspire the greatest off-grid consumer demand over the next 3 to 5 years, and the appliances that they think are likely to drive the greatest energy access (e.g., socioeconomic or environmental) benefits. Survey respondents ranked LED room lighting appliances as the top appliance driving off-grid consumer demand, and the top product driving the energy access benefits.
