WEBINAR | Expanding the off-grid market

Opportunities for Growth

IFC’s Daniel Shepherd, Head of Energy & Water Advisory Services for Sub-Saharan Africa, leads an exciting online discussions about the opportunities for growth in the off-grid market.

The pay-as-you-go (PAYGo) business model is proving to be an effective approach in delivering electricity access through distributed solar, and the sector has gained significant investment interest and activity. Still, there is considerable untapped opportunity for growth across Sub-Saharan Africa, with various drivers impacting market growth.

In this webinar, we take a deep dive into the use of data in market expansion, with a presentation on the PAYGo Market Attractiveness Index prepared by IFC. The Index is based on various high-quality datasets covering critical aspects of the commercial opportunity and enabling environment conditions for the 14 countries, serving as an analytical tool to support PAYG companies in evaluating and prioritizing market entry opportunities. We will also learn about practical experiences from enterprises in using data for PAYG expansion in new market countries. Press play below to watch a recording of the webinar:
