Policy Brief: Solar E-waste in Sub-Sahara Africa

Share this


The societal benefits of off-grid solar solutions are undeniable: 120.3 million people now have improved energy access, 18.6 million sources of traditional lighting have been phased out and USD 192 of annual savings achieved, on average, per household. Off-grid solar is a healthier, safer and cheaper alternative to kerosene, batteries and candles. It also has the potential to lead to job creation both within the off-grid solar value chain, and for people using solar home systems in small businesses. At the same time, access to energy enables broader societal benefits including improved education and healthcare.
