1. Industry contacts databases

1.1 Off-Grid solar Local Actors Database (OGLA base)

This database provides a full list of local contacts of distributors, engineering companies or installers of off-grid systems. It relies on the experience of Infinergia on off-grid market and on its rich network of contacts worldwide.

  • Companies: Africa - around 700 companies, Latin America - around 150 companies
  • Countries coverage in Africa: Algeria, Angola, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia. Country coverage in Latin America: Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru. Other countries upon request.
  • Company data includes: company (name, website, date of creation, employees, typology), product qualification (type of products, applications, brands), contact information (phone number, address, email, contact information (name, job)
  • Benefits: provides the most complete and accurate list of off-grid PV actors at national level, on each step of the value chain. Allows to identify retail network by country and identify local partners (engineering, distributors)
  • Targets: off-grid systems integrators and developers, photovoltaic panel vendors, energy storage vendors, hybrid genset vendors, solar water pumps vendors, inverter & power electronics vendors.

1.2 Telecom infrastructure contacts database (OGTELC base):

This database provides a list of contacts in charge of energy solutions for telecom infrastructure or in charge of network deployment by each operator. It relies on the strong experience of Infinergia on telecom infrastructure and off-grid telecom sites in particular and on its rich network of contacts worldwide.

  • Companies: 40 Mobile Network Operators, 16 Tower companies.
  • Countries coverage (10 countries): Algeria, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa.
  • Company data includes: contact details (name of company, website, company phone number), contact information (full name, job title and email address) and type of contact (CTO, Energy manager, Infrastructure development manager, national roll-out manager, operations director, etc.).
  • Benefits: lead identification (get connected with qualified lead), identify new business opportunities, etc.
  • Targets: off-grid systems integrators and developers, photovoltaic panel vendors, energy storage vendors, hybrid genset vendors, inverter & power electronics vendors.

2. Off-grid PV quantitative database

Off-grid cumulative capacity in MW & units by country & market segment (OGMI base)

We analyzed the off-grid Photovoltaic market by investigating over 100 countries and quantifying main applications by market segment (units & MW by country):

  • Country coverage: Africa: 35 countries, Latin America: 29 countries, Asia: 19 countries, ROW: 34 countries.
  • Applications: residential (Solar Home Systems, solar lighting, etc.), community (schools, health centers, public buildings, solar street lighting, water pumping...), other industries (telecom sites, tourism sites, agriculture, mining, oil & gas, military and defense...).
  • Methodology: desk research, interviews, other information sources (news, tenders).
  • Benefits: estimation of potential revenues by application and country, identify off-grid solar segment and region/country representing the largest market opportunities
  • Targets: off-grid systems integrators and developers, photovoltaic panel vendors, energy storage vendors, hybrid genset vendors, solar water pumps vendors, inverter & power electronics vendors.

3. Macro economical Off-Grid database (MOG model)

This database includes key parameters that contribute or not to the dynamism of a given country with regards to the development of the off-grid PV market. We first selected the parameters, sourced the proper information and computed a country ranking via our MOG model. This ranking of countries helps actors to understand which country has the highest potential on mid to long term for off-grid photovoltaic electricity development.

  • Country coverage: Africa: 36 countries, Latin America: 25 countries, Asia: 19 countries, ROW: 21 countries
  • Methodology: desk research on 30 indicators, crossed-check with our quantitative database and interviews.
  • Benefits: identify the strongest markets for off-grid solar product by application and countries, identify growth opportunity
  • Targets: off-grid systems integrators and developers, photovoltaic panel vendors, energy storage vendors, hybrid genset vendors, solar water pumps vendors, inverter & power electronics vendors.
