The flagship State of the Global Mini-grids Market Report 2020, an initiative of the Mini-Grids Partnership and published by BloombergNEF and Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) was launched on July 1.

The aims of this report is to raise awareness about mini-grids, mobilise investments in the mini-grid sector and serve as a benchmark to measure progress in the sector for decision-makers. It provides the latest updates on the global mini-grids market and highlights key trends in the industry that, together, can stand as the definitive source of information for stakeholders. SNV energy experts provided feedback on the report content during the initial review process.

The Mini-Grids Partnership is a consortium of over 320 like-minded mini-grid stakeholders interested in enhancing and complementing each other’s work through collaboration and coordination. SNV forms part of the steering committee for this organisation.

Mini-grids are a practical and cost-effective electricity solution for communities that do not have access to the national grid. They can supply electricity for a localised group of consumers including households, institution and businesses. This technology is part of SNV approach to achieving SDG7 ensuring sustainable energy for all.
