Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report Semi-Annual Sales and Impact Data

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

The off-grid solar industry is growing and servicing an increasingly diverse demand. The industry’s efforts to meet global demand for off-grid solar products and reach new customers have seen a 40% increase in solar home system sales worldwide with PAYGo sales reaching the 1 million mark for the first time in the past six months.

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 second of its kind to include data for both lighting products and off-grid solar-powered appliances. The report highlights greater visibility of products across appliance markets in this second iteration with increased participation from companies leading to more comprehensive data.

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