L’objectif de cette document est d’identifier les freins au déploiement de l’énergie solaire en Afrique et de proposer des solutions concrètes permettant à cette dernière de se déployer et ainsi de répondre aux défis démographique et climatique du continent africain.
This report examines solar lanterns, solar home systems and multi-light systems with charger that constitute the distributed standalone solar products sector and provides a summary of key government initiatives influencing the market.
Ce document reﬂète les points de vue communs au regard des principales questions de politiques et de réglementations du secteur de l'énergie solaire autonome et hors-réseau.
This report provides insights into the social and economic impact of off-grid solar. It follows the “Powering Opportunity: The Economic Impact of Off-Grid Solar” report which highlighted the domino effect solar home systems (SHS) are having on household economic activity, creating income and improving quality of life. This latest report confirms those findings, sheds new light on how this impact evolves over time, and explores how economic activity equates to full time equivalent (FTE) employment.
This guide touches upon how the off-grid solar sector is defined, what kind of companies operate within as well as their business models, what kinds of investment opportunities are available and some key considerations for new investors in the sector.
This latest Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report presents sales and impact data for July to December 2018, reflecting the performance of 84 companies, which are GOGLA members and companies that sell Lighting Global quality-verified products. This report provides sales data for solar lanterns, multi-light systems and solar home systems (SHS) in 46 countries.
Photovoltaic solar energy (PV) is expected to play a key role in the future global sustainable energy system. It has demonstrated impressive developments in terms of the scale of deployment, cost reduction and performance enhancement, most visibly over the past decade. In this paper it is argued, however, that in view of actual developments in PV over the past few decades there are good reasons to adopt another approach, that does more justice to the role and potential of existing and new PV concepts and technologies.
This paper compares the impact of financial conditions on the cost of electricity generation across six renewable and three fossil-based technologies in 46 African countries. This paper also demonstrates that, once ambitious climate policies are in place, reducing financing costs for renewables could be an efficient way to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Ce rapport explore comment les kits solaires permettent aux foyers en Afrique de l’Ouest de développer leur activité économique, d’augmenter leurs revenus et d’améliorer leur qualité de vie.
This new report finds an overwhelming majority (97%) of people living with a solar home system in West Africa report quality of life improvements as they feel safer, healthier and children have more time to study.
