Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report Semi-Annual Sales and Impact Data from July- December 2019

This report includes sales and impact data for off-grid solar lighting products and appliances sold by GOGLA and Lighting Global affiliates between July and December 2019.

The off-grid solar industry is growing and servicing an increasingly diverse demand. This report highlights how the off-grid solar industry is currently providing energy to over 100 million people around the world, with sales of 4.4 million off-grid solar lighting products and 460,000 appliances in the last six months of 2019 alone.

This high demand for larger systems reflects their popularity with customers who are diversifying the way they use solar in their homes and businesses with energy-efficient appliances. In ensuring that these larger off-grid solar products are as accessible as possible, there has been a surge in the number of customers choosing the PAYGo model to purchase a solar home system.

This report is the third of its kind to include data for both lighting products and off-grid solar-powered appliances. For the first time, the report shows regional insights on the impact of off-grid solar lighting products.

The Global Off-grid Solar Market report was produced by GOGLA, Lighting Global, Efficiency for Access Coalition, and Berenschot.
