potential for off grid pv
Potential for Off-Grid PV
  • Four out of Five people without access to electricity live in dispersed rural communities.
  • Off-grid PV can:
    • Be less costly
    • Be deployed rapidly
    • Build on existing public and private institutional capacity
  • Numerous opportunities for PV industry in developing world – For example…
    • Africa Access Plan
    • China Township & Village Electrification Programs
    • India Rajiv Gandhi Rural Electrification Program
    • Philippines Missionary Electrification Development Plan
limitations of current approaches
Limitations of Current Approaches
  • High cost of non-competitive awards
  • Limited leverage of donor resources
  • Give away systems - No ownership
  • Parachute-in technology – inadequate attention to long term sustainability
  • Inadequate community consultation
  • Pilot projects too small to be sustainable
recommendations 1
Recommendations (1)
  • Convince decision-makers of value of PV for development
  • Build trust - Improve dialogue among key players, government, community, private sector
  • Build partnerships – local firms and financial institutions
  • Move from a project-oriented to market/ programmatic approach
recommendations 2
Recommendations (2)
  • Leverage funding
  • Adhere to quality standards for both products and services
  • Avoid technology dumping and ensure long term financial sustainability of investments
  • Arrange for long term operation
  • Take advantage of local capacities
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Many opportunities for PV industry in developing world to contribute to MDGs and increase business and profitably
  • Will require thinking beyond boundaries and timeframes of an individual project.
