SEforALL Report on State of Global Mini-Grid Markets 2020

The Mini-Grids Partnership (MGP) report is a culmination of combined effort and true collaboration between different organizations. This report was commissioned by Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL), on behalf of the MGP, a consortium of over 300 stakeholders with representation from funders/financiers, government, private sector/industry and other enablers. It aims to raise awareness about mini-grids, mobilizing investments in the mini-grid sector, and serving 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.

This research has three primary goals. The first is to provide stakeholders in the mini-grid sector with the most up-to date information and analysis of the market status and trends in the sector. The second is to propose recommendations for key stakeholders to address the challenges identified in the research in developing the mini-grid market. The third is to build an open-source mini-grid asset database.
