Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report Semi-Annual Sales and Impact Data (H2 2018)
Every six months, GOGLA and The World Bank Group’s Lighting Global program publish the Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report, a market intelligence series on sales and impact of off-grid solar lighting products, sold by GOGLA and Lighting Global affiliates. Since 2019, the report also includes sales numbers of off-grid appliances, in partnership with the Efficiency for Access Coalition.
Sales of off-grid solar appliances were reported at 350,000 in H2 2018, with TVs and fans as the most widely sold product types. The report’s expansion to off-grid appliances signals a new frontier for many companies in the sector and underscores the need to enhance sales data collection efforts.
