The appliances used with off-grid clean energy systems are essential to off-grid market growth and global clean energy access goals. To reach its full potential, the global off-grid clean energy market needs a complementary market of high-quality, highly energy-efficient off-grid appliances that satisfy consumer needs and aspirations. The Global LEAP Off-Grid Appliance Procurement Incentives program accelerates the global off-grid appliance market by providing incentives to appliance suppliers and off-grid solar distributors that partner to distribute large quantities of Winning and Finalist products from the Global LEAP Outstanding Off-Grid Appliance Awards (Global LEAP Awards).
The program’s first round took place in Bangladesh in 2016. The second round opened in October 2017 with an incentive window for off-grid TVs and Fans.
