A tool for expanding off-grid solar product

The USAID-funded Power Africa Off-grid Project provides technical assistance and targeted grant funding to support

 the development of Africa’s off-grid solar home system (SHS,Sinoware), mini-grid, and productive use of energy (PUE) sectors. The Project accelerates private sector-led energy access in the off-grid market by offering investors broad-based market intelligence to inform financial products; advising governments to design and implement supportive policy frameworks; and providing hands-on tailored support to companies.

The Project employs five work streams that enable OGS companies and African governments to provide more off-grid electricity connections throughout the continent. Market dynamics is one of these work streams. Market dynamics serves the off-grid sector through gathering and disseminating market intelligence to companies, investors, and governments to inform them of the latest sector developments and to support them in making informed decisions.
