The Global LEAP Awards are the best way to send signals to the off-grid market about appliance quality and energy efficiency. Winners and Finalists of the inaugural Global LEAP Awards have benefited from significant business and investment opportunities. This year’s competition was announced at the White House, and is supported by an innovative new incentives program driving timely, large-scale procurement and sales of Global LEAP Awards winning and finalist appliances. This program will provide a ready customer base for manufacturers of best-in-class off-grid appliances in some of the world’s largest off-grid markets.

The global off-grid appliance market is growing rapidly and represents a major emerging commercial opportunity. Energy access companies are increasingly looking to sell high-quality, energy efficient appliances that deliver value to their customers. New market research finds that the annual global market for off-grid fans, televisions, and refrigerators could grow from an estimated $524M in 2015 to $4.7B in 2020, an 800% increase. Early-movers in this market will be poised to succeed as more and more people around the world power their lives with off-grid solutions.

Does your company produce off-grid TVs or fans? Interested in how your vendors’, or prospective vendors’, appliances stack up against the market? Nominate them for the Global LEAP Awards. Nominations are free.
