Catalyzing the uptake of high quality, life-transforming, energy efficient appliances for the world’s poorest people
CLASP focuses on interventions in these impact areas:
60% of off-grid solar customers undertake more economic activity within just three months of purchasing a solar home system.
Farmers with fewer than five acres can increase their yield by 30% with just one piece of modern processing equipment.
Women & Gender
Studies show that women reinvest 90% of their income in their families and communities, while men reinvest only 30 to 40%.
33% of health facilities across sub-Saharan Africa have unreliable access to electricity.
CLASP supports progress on Sustainable Development Goal 7 - affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
CLASP helps build healthy markets for off-grid solar products by driving innovation and sales in early-stage product markets, surfacing data and research on product performance, market trends, and consumer preferences, establishing technical foundations for consumer protection, and aligning sector stakeholders across the value-chain.
CLASP’s energy access programs include the Efficiency for Access Coalition, the Global LEAP Awards, and VeraSol Quality Assurance, among other initiatives.
