Serving more than 5,000 customers and operating from 37 sales points in five regions of Ethiopia including Somali, Amhara, Gambella, Oromia and Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR) and with a plan to expand in two more regions, Hello solar, a solar energy solutions distributor in Ethiopia operating on a Pay-as-you-go model using HelloCash mobile money service provider as the payment solution, has shared the learning experience in its March 2020 report.

 

Key report highlights,

 

  • Although the global sales of solar lighting products, on a PayGo model, reached 1 million units, accounting for 24% of solar lighting products sales worldwide in 2019, the Ethiopian market was characterized by a few factors that have limited the success of such a model thus far,
  • In addition to the very low level of rural mobile penetration rate (35% while African average is 73%) (2017), all mobile money wallets must be linked to an account with a traditional financial institution which brings in systems integration issues and a heavier load of operations as more parties and platforms needed to be integrated together in Ethiopian market, (eepBp noted that the regulation is under reform)
  • The conservative regulations around foreign investment and lack of foreign currency for imports made Ethiopia a complex business environment

Ongoing innovation in technology and distribution models continues to be a hallmark of the off-grid solar sector. Having already led to hundreds of millions of people benefitting from off-grid solar products ranging from lanterns to solar home systems (SHS), products are now developing along the sector’s newest frontier – productive uses leveraging solar energy (PULSE). These can provide livelihoods for off-grid households and micro-enterprises across the agricultural, industrial, commercial, and public sectors.

A market for these new applications is emerging, and is explored in our new report, “The Market Opportunity for Productive Use Leveraging Solar Energy (PULSE) in Sub-Saharan Africa.” This report provides an overview of the market for PULSE micro-applications, which can be powered by standalone solar systems of one kilowatt or less. We narrowed the scope to products that largely overlap in size with the off-grid household solar sector in order to explore the opportunity to catalyse growth in the PULSE market and produce similar results to those achieved by Lighting Global’s country programs. The micro-PULSE segment represents a natural extension for off-grid manufacturers and suppliers that have achieved great success in expanding energy access in rural areas. Geographically, the focus of the report is on sub-Saharan Africa with a deeper dive on Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Cote d’Ivoire. It seeks to inform the strategy of industry, government, and development actors and to catalyze the market for PULSE solutions across Africa.

The World Bank Group and the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF), based at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, have published a joint report that examines a wide range of financing solutions for delivering Off Grid Solar (OGS) electricity to more than 840 million people still living without access to reliable power.

The report, Funding the Sun – New Paradigms for Financing Off-Grid Solar Companies, explores an array of innovative as well as traditional financing solutions for providing electricity access to hundreds of millions of people, predominantly in sub-Saharan Africa. It also offers guidance for companies seeking to deploy their OGS solutions by outlining which financing option best suits their specific approach, the preconditions for each financing option, and the associated opportunities and challenges.

The recent Off-Grid Solar Market Trends Report 2020 by the World Bank Group and GOGLA (the OGS industry association) highlighted that, in order to achieve universal access to electricity by 2030, the OGS sector would need between $6.6 billion and $11 billion in additional funding.
