H1 2020 Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report

Every six months, Lighting Global and GOGLA  publish the Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report, a market intelligence series on sales and impact of off-grid solar lighting products, sold by GOGLA and Lighting Global affiliates. 

January – June 2020 Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report

  • The off-grid solar sector is playing an essential role in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Solar home systems and efficient appliances are keeping the lights on in health centers, powering local businesses and helping families stay connected and informed.
  • However, in the first half of 2020, global sales fell 26% compared to the same period in 2019, curbing the sector’s record-breaking growth.
  • The worst affected region was South Asia, which saw a 60% drop compared to the first half of 2019. East Africa reported a dip of 11%, while sales in West and Central Africa remained relatively stable.
  • Efficient appliances were also affected. Sales of fans saw the largest absolute decline while solar water pumps and refrigeration units also saw a halt in growth. Compared with the first half of 2019, TV sales were stable. Companies indicated that this may be due to customers’ demand for entertainment and information during lockdowns.
  • This overall decline in sales led to an estimated 5 million people missing the opportunity to benefit from clean, safe solar electricity in their homes and businesses.
  • Yet, the industry has met this year’s challenges with resilience and innovation and its development partners have united behind relief efforts. Governments have recognized the ‘essential role’ the industry plays in providing energy access, while investors remain optimistic about its impact and potential.
  • With the right regulatory and financial support, the off-grid solar sector can quickly regain the momentum seen in 2019 and play a vital role in the post pandemic recovery – unlocking economic activity, generating green jobs and boosting resilience for millions of people around the world.

2020年1月 – 6月全球离网太阳能市场报告

  • 离网太阳能行业在抗击新冠肺炎疫情中发挥着不可或缺的作用。太阳能家用系统和高效电器为健康中心维持24小时供电,为当地企业提供所需的电力,帮助无数家庭与亲人保持联系和信息通畅。
  • 然而,2020年上半年,全球销售额与2019年同期相比下降26%,抑制了行业创纪录的增长势头。
  • 受影响最严重的地区是南亚,与2019年上半年相比销售额下降60%。据报告,东非地区的销售额下降了11%,而西非和中非地区的销售额则保持相对稳定。
  • 高效电器的销售也受到了影响。其中,风扇销量的下滑幅度最大,太阳能水泵和制冷机组的销售也出现了增长停滞。与2019年上半年相比,电视销量保持稳定。合作方公司表示,这可能要归因于消费者在封城期间对娱乐和获取信息的需求。
  • 销售的整体下滑导致预估大约500万人失去了在家中和企业中使用清洁、安全太阳能电力的机会。
  • 至此,该行业以韧性、创新以及救助回应背后其发展伙伴的团结迎接今年的挑战各国政府已经认识到该行业在确保能源接入方面发挥的“不可或缺作用”,而投资者对行业的影响力和潜力仍持乐观态度
  • 在正确的监管和金融支持下,离网太阳能行业可以迅速恢复2019年的发展势头,并在疫情过后的经济复苏中发挥至关重要的作用——释放经济活力,创造绿色就业机会,并助力全球数以百万计的人们增强韧性。
