The Global LEAP Awards 2014 Outstanding Off-Grid Appliances competition is a Clean Energy Ministerial initiative to identify and promote the world's best, most energy-efficient off-grid compatible televisions and LED room lighting appliances. All Global LEAP Awards Finalists were tested using internationally accepted laboratory test methodologies and were assessed by a panel of off-grid market experts. Winners were announced at the 5th Clean Energy Ministerial in Seoul, Korea, on 12 May 2014.
The products featured in The Global LEAP Awards Outstanding Off-Grid Appliances Buyer’s Guide are among the best off-grid LED room lighting appliances and TVs in the world.

As a result, the products featured here all positively contribute to the clean energy access marketplace: they each offer a strong balance of price, super-efficiency,
