Global LEAP Awards

Promoting Energy Access by Supporting Innovation and Competition in the Off-Grid Appliance Market


Hundreds of millions of families and small businesses in the developing world have little or no access to the electric grid. Energy poverty depresses these people’s economic and educational opportunities, impeding lasting development gains. Electric appliances – often powered by clean low-voltage solar home systems – catalyze economic activity, increase people’s ability meet basic domestic needs, and help lay the foundation for strong commercial markets. Super-efficient appliances optimize these benefits by reducing energy costs and optimizing the value of the limited electricity available to off-grid populations.

The Global LEAP Outstanding Off-Grid Product Awards support self-sustaining commercial markets for off-grid energy products by identifying and promoting the most energy-efficient, affordable, highest quality appliances. Learn more about the Global LEAP Awards.
