The Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (“Global LEAP”) Outstanding Off-Grid Appliance Awards Competition & Innovation Prize seeks to transform the global market for off-grid appliances by recognizing and rewarding the most energy-efficient, highest quality off-grid refrigerator products. 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, and featured off-grid LED luminaries and televisions. The second Global LEAP Awards were announced in June 2016 at the 7th Clean Energy Ministerial in San Francisco, USA, and featured off-grid televisions and fans. This Global LEAP Awards Competition focused on super-efficient off-grid refrigerators, and recognized commercially-available products that demonstrate a strong balance of energy efficiency, quality,affordability, and off-grid appropriateness. The Innovation Prize, a component of the Competition, consisted of a cash reward that will be awarded to commercially-available OR late-stage prototype products that demonstrate market-leading technical and/or design innovation in energy efficiency, off-grid appropriateness, and overall value.
