Equip Data is the legacy of tried-and-true data collection and test method development efforts – beginning with the inaugural 2014 Global LEAP Awards. The Awards generated market intelligence and product performance data on an emerging set of off-grid appropriate appliances for the first time in the energy access sector.
In 2015, CLASP created the “Off-Grid Appliance Data Platform,” a product testing and data-sharing program to compare the performance, quality, and price of select products. Support from Good Energies Foundation and UK aid has allowed the program to scale over time in both size and scope. Today, Equip Data builds on five years of data collection to chart a path for knowledge sharing and impartial assessments in the off-grid appliance industry.
