Low Energy Inclusive Appliances (LEIA) Programme

The Low Energy Inclusive Appliances (LEIA) is a research and innovation programme contributing into the Efficiency for Access Coalition. Supported by UK Aid, LEIA aims to double the efficiency and halve the cost of a suite of appliances that are well-suited for energy access contexts. LEIA was designed with extensive industry consultation regarding the specific challenges and opportunities of the off-grid clean energy access appliance market.

LEIA invites experts to participate in, and lead, LEIA Technology Working Groups (TWGs). TWG members will ideally represent multidisciplinary teams of appliance manufacturers, purchasers, researchers and others throughout the supply chain, and will be invited to participate in a series of in-person and virtual discussions.

TWGs will inform and revise ongoing consumer, technical, and market research activities to ensure that the LEIA Technology Roadmaps act as innovation accelerators, are well aligned with market needs, and provide good linkages for investment decisions.

We invite all stakeholders, and in particular, industry representatives, to indicate their interest to participate in one, or more, TWGs by sending an introductory email to [email protected].

LEIA Invitation for Pre-qualification

Interested and qualified private sector parties to engage in various consulting services through the LEIA programme are invited to participate in a competitive procurement process for specific requests for proposals to support various aspects of programme delivery.

Organisations that fill and meet the requirements of the LEIA pre-qualification questionnaire will then receive Requests for Proposals and other calls relevant to their area(s) of expertise.
