Global LEAP to Host Off-Grid PlugFest at CEM5

A first-of-its-kind off-grid appliance and clean energy system “PlugFest” will be held at the fifth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM5) in Seoul on 13 May 2014. Organized by the Clean Energy Ministerial in partnership with the Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy (MOTIE), the event will bring together low-voltage DC appliance manufacturers, off-grid solar home system (SHS) companies, and other energy access professionals to share best practices, and test appliance-system interoperability—a key challenge facing the off-grid clean energy access market.
