The LEIA team is partnering with industry players to support the uptake of energy efficient, off-grid agricultural appliances
Negligible data currently exists regarding off- and weak-grid refrigerator cost and performance. To help fill this gap and accelerate the off-grid appliance market, Efficiency for Access procured and tested commercially available refrigerators to establish a performance baseline.
The two-day workshop took place in Amsterdam ahead of the 2018 GOGLA annual general meeting. This setting provided an opportunity to engage a variety of industry leaders including product designers, manufacturers of both on- and off-grid appliances, distributors, pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) solar home system providers, and other development and technology specialists. More than 45 participants took part in a wide-ranging discussion that covered eight categories of typical market barriers. Participants collectively identified and prioritised actions in each area for the Coalition to consider and take forward, which are detailed in this report.
