High-quality, energy-efficient appliances are essential to the growth of off-grid energy markets—they create demand for off-grid energy while reducing energy costs. However, too many off-grid solar companies struggle to design, identify, and source outstanding off-grid appliances, and many appliance manufacturers are unaware of the off-grid market’s commercial opportunities.
The Global LEAP Awards provide clear and actionable signals about the quality and energy performance of off-grid appliances. Global LEAP identifies winners and finalists through a combination of expert evaluation and energy- and cost-based quantitative assessments. All Global LEAP Awards Winners and Finalists undergo testing by accredited laboratories for their energy performance, quality, and reliability, and an evaluation by a panel of off-grid market experts.
Past Global LEAP Awards have provided cash prizes for products that demonstrate innovation, efficiency, and overall value in addition to results-based financing incentives to appliance manufacturers and off-grid solar distributors that partner to distribute large quantities of LEAP recognized best-in-class appliances.
