Webinar - How to Bridge the Electrification Gap in Asia through Off-Grid PV Systems?


04 Aug. 2017 by

During this webinar we discussed how the development of the Asian solar sector can be accelerated and what solutions off-grid can bring. Joining us are industry experts Laura Sundblad (GOGLA) and Charu Chadha (GSMA Mobile for Development Utilities).



512 million people do not have access to electricity in Asia's developing countries. India accounts for 244 million, South-East Asia for 102 million (primarily Indonesia, Myanmar and Cambodia) and 166 million are situated in the rest of developing Asia (60 million in Bangladesh, 51 million in Pakistan and others)*. Despite this shockingly high number and the great potential of off-grid applications, the off-grid market hasn't grown at the same scale as it has in Africa. During this webinar we will be discussing how the development of the sector can be accelerated and what solutions the off-grid can bring.
