An international competition that identifies the world's best, most energy-efficient off-grid appliances
High-quality, energy-efficient appliances are essential to the growth of off-grid energy markets—they create demand for off-grid energy while reducing energy costs. The Global LEAP Awards provide clear and actionable signals about the quality and energy performance of off-grid appliances.
Global LEAP identifies Winners and Finalists through a combination of expert evaluation and energy- and cost-based quantitative assessments. All Global LEAP Awards Winners and Finalists undergo testing by accredited laboratories for their energy performance, quality, and reliability, and an evaluation by a panel of off-grid market experts.
