Mini-grids are considered to be a crucial solution for bringing power to the 761 million people around the world currently lacking access to safe, clean, and reliable energy. Especially in areas lacking central grid infrastructure, renewable energy-powered mini-grids could make a major contribution towards bridging the electrification gap.
