For a significant portion of the estimated 789 million people who currently lack access to electricity, mini-grids can present a least-cost option to close the access gap. Despite this potential and advances in renewable clean energy technology, the mini-grid market remains nascent today.
The Mini-Grids Partnership (MGP)—a consortium of over 300 mini-grid stakeholders from the public and private sector—identified a lack of unified and comprehensive data and sector knowledge as a critical gap for the development of the mini-grids sector, and agreed to produce an authoritative, insightful, and up-to-date market intelligence report.
