The Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP™) Outstanding Off-Grid Appliance Awards Competition (Global LEAP Awards™) seeks to transform the global market for off-grid television products by recognizing and rewarding the most energy-efficient, highest quality off-grid appliances.
As a Clean Energy Ministerial initiative, Global LEAP seeks to advance global clean energy access policy goals by harnessing the power of marketplace competition to drive technical and market innovations in the off-grid appliance sector. The inaugural Global LEAP Awards were announced in May 2014 at the 5th Clean Energy Ministerial in Seoul, Korea.
