How super-efficient appliances can change the face of energy access

Monday, April 3rd: 16:45 - 17:45 - Building 314

HOST: Global LEAP, CLASP, UN Foundation

Appliances are a rapidly increasing focus in sustainable development – particularly the role they play in expanding energy access and delivering the modern energy services that transform lives and livelihoods. This can be seen from emerging policy models in East Africa and South Asia, to interest in innovative off-grid appliance developers by impact investors, to benchmarking energy service levels against appliance usage via the Multi-Tier Framework and to new programmatic and market development investments. Join Global Lighting Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP) partners – including CLASP as the operating agent and the United Nations Foundation – in an interactive discussion of emerging trends in off- and weak-grid appliance markets, progress to date, and what’s to come.
