Off-grid electricity production from renewables, although largely unrecorded in most countries, is believed to be expanding rapidly.

This Roadmap provides recommendations for mobilizing a massive and more equitable scale-up of investment in solar energy by 2030.

The off-grid solar (OGS) sector has the potential to increase universal access to energy, alleviate poverty, support economic development, and increase gender equality.

This report aims to survey the outlook for the off-grid solar market and interventions needed for the sector to achieve its full potential impact.

For more than a decade, the biennial Off-Grid Solar (OGS) Market Trends Report (MTR) has been the anchor of the World Bank Lighting Global/GOGLA franchise of reports. They are the go-to source of OGS sector information for investors, industry members, policymakers, and other stakeholders.

This report, the third in IRENA’s gender perspective series, examines the participation of women in the solar PV sector.

The paper studies the design and performance of three schemes Suryashakti Kisan Yojana (SKY) in Gujarat, Surya Raitha Scheme in Karnataka, and the Solar BLDC Pump Pilot in Andhra Pradesh—that predated the launch of KUSUM’s Component C in Tamil Nadu.

Rapid growth of distributed photovoltaics (DPV) has upended the paradigm of one-way power from the grid. Solar electricity systems located close to consumers empower them to self-supply and feed into the grid. For utilities, the impacts—positive or negative—depend on how DPV is deployed.

Off-grid electricity production from renewables, although largely unrecorded in most countries, is believed to be expanding rapidly.

The report provides insights into the relationship between cooling and already-agreed-upon climate and development goals; presents the barriers, critical step-changes, and solutions needed to accelerate innovation and transformation; proposes aspirational targets and actions for each decade with the aim of achieving net-zero GHG emissions from c
