Africa Off-Grid Solar Project
In November / December 2016 the YP Team will be in West and East Africa conducting a research study on the off-grid solar market. According to the World Energy Outlook, an estimated 1.2 billion people – 17% of the global population, did not have access to electricity in 2013, 84 million fewer than in the previous year. This is in part due to a growing sector of entrepreneurs who are developing innovative products and financing solutions to bring electricity to “energy poor” communities. In partnership with SunPowerd, we will be engaging a broad group of stakeholders across this ecosystem and publishing a report on the state of the market. Please let us know if you’d like to get involved.
