Global LEAP and Partners Launch Innovative Off-Grid Market Acceleration Program
The Clean Energy Ministerial’s Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP) is partnering with Energising Development (EnDev), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), and CLASP to launch an innovative energy access program. The market acceleration program will provide results-based financing incentives to support bulk purchases of off-grid appliances that have won or been named a finalist in Global LEAP Awards competitions. By helping to make these high-quality, highly energy-efficient appliances more accessible to consumers, the program will improve access to clean energy services and strengthen off-grid renewable energy markets.
The new partnership will galvanize off-grid appliance markets in two ways. First, the Global LEAP Outstanding Off-Grid Appliance Awards will identify the world’s highest-quality and most energy-efficient off-grid appliances. Then the partnership will provide results-based incentives to off-grid energy companies that sell these efficient appliances with their small-scale solar energy systems.
