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.

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

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.

Making Coal Flexible: Getting From Baseload to Peaking Plant

Making Coal Flexible: Getting From Baseload to Peaking Plant

Power systems in the 21st century will favor resources that have low marginal costs and provide system flexibility, including the ability to cycle on and off and to run at low minimum loads to complement variations in output. This paper uses a case study of a coal-fired generating station (CGS) to evaluate how power plants intended to run at baseload can evolve to serve other system needs. It shows that coal-fired power plants can continue to operate cost-effectively if they cycle routinely. This report is also available in Mandarin.
