  • Developing Effective Off-Grid Lighting Policy

    Developing Effective Off-Grid Lighting Policy

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 2015

    This report explains how the need for lighting products in places like Africa remains critical, as a large portion of households still have no access to electrical services. The report argues there is strong evidence of the significant benefits of even low levels of electricity access, such as its impact on the effective length of working days, education, safety and access to information. The report offers strategic advice to policymakers within governments and regulatory agencies to accelerate the penetration of efficient off-grid lighting products.
