Data Collection Process
How were these test methods developed?
The Global LEAP Awards collaborates with off-grid energy industry stakeholders, appliance manufacturers, policymakers, and test facilities to develop test methods that evaluate the quality, durability, energy performance, and off-grid market appropriateness of TVs, fans, refrigerators, and solar water pumps. The test methods are developed through a rigorous research, consultation, and review process. Global LEAP Awards leverages other existing, widely adopted test methods (e.g. International Electrotechnical Commission, World Health Organization) with added components to measure off-grid appropriateness (e.g. voltage fluctuation conditions).
