Build Market Intelligence/Data for Mini-grids development and SHS Deployment
Companies, investors and policy makers face challenges making informed decisions in the off-grid sector due to insufficient market data. Existing data sets are limited in scope, outdated and often unreliable. NoMAP will support the sector with data on off-grid communities that are viable for mini-grid development and deployment of solar home systems. Data needs of stakeholders will be obtained; geospatial analysis complemented with community level field survey will also be undertaken. This will help market actors understand demand and market dynamics. NoMAP will also support the Rural Energy Agency with two market audits as part of its Energizing Economies Program.
