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, and reduce costs. By providing the off-grid marketplace clear and actionable signals about the quality and energy performance of off-grid appliances, the Global LEAP Awards accelerate the off-grid market.
All appliances named Winners or Finalists in the Global LEAP Awards have been tested in accredited laboratories for their energy performance, quality, and reliability, and have been evaluated by a panel of off-grid market experts. Winners and Finalists are identified through a combination of expert evaluation and energy- and cost-based quantitative assessments.
