Off-Grid Solar

The Challenge

The Off-Grid Solar Scale-Up initiative aims to increase access to clean, reliable, and sustainable electricity provided by modern off-grid solar solutions by leveraging World Bank lending to the public sector while also bolstering private sector participation.

Solutions include, but are not limited to, portable solar lanterns, solar home systems, and productive use applications.

As COVID-19 has focused attention on these issues, the initiative will pay particular attention to increasing access to stand-alone solar systems for health and educational facilities, in addition to other essential institutions.
