Off-Grid Appliance B2B Networking Event
Hosted by: Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP),
Power Africa, and Energising Development (EnDev).
Solar distributors are encouraged to attend an invitation-only event to network and discuss business opportunities in the fast-growing off-grid appliance market.
This event will showcase suppliers of Winning and Finalist TVs and Fans from the 2015-16 and 2016-17 Global LEAP Awards, as well as preliminary finalists in the inaugural Global LEAP Awards Off-Grid Refrigerator Competition. This event will provide a forum for interested participants in the Global LEAP Procurement Incentives Program to meet the eligible suppliers.
Through face-to-face meetings with off-grid appliance market leaders, attendees will be exposed to best-in-class appliance technology and get a jump start on participation in the incentive window for TVs and Fans, which will open on 16 October 2017.
The global market for off-grid appliances is poised for rapid, significant growth. By 2020, the market for three of the most promising off-grid appliances - fans, televisions, and refrigerators - has the potential to reach $4.7B per year.
The Global LEAP Off-Grid Appliance Procurement Incentives program accelerates the global off-grid appliance market by incentivizing appliance manufacturers and off-grid solar distributors to partner to distribute large quantities of winning and finalist products from the Global LEAP Outstanding Off-Grid Appliance Awards (Global LEAP Awards).
The program’s second round will be open to companies in Bangladesh, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda that distribute winning and finalist products from the 2015-16 and 2016-17 Global LEAP Awards for outstanding off-grid refrigerators, televisions (TVs), and fans.
Global LEAP, Power Africa, and EnDev invite you to join the world’s leading SHS and off-grid appliance companies to network, share best practices, and conduct business.
