Digitalisation & solar in emerging markets

On 6th November at Digital Solar & Storage 2019, SolarPower Europe’s Emerging Markets Task Force and Digitalisation & Solar Task Force launched a joint report, ‘Digitalisation & Solar in Emerging Markets’, which focuses on the convergence of digital technology and solar in the context of emerging markets globally.

This report explores the importance of digital solar with a special focus on new and emerging markets outside of Europe. It shows that digital solar is indeed a key pillar of the global energy transition in all segments of economy and society. The report includes off-grid digital solar technologies and business models such as solar-based microgrids and pay-as-you-go for solar, which enable access to energy in off-grid contexts or regions with unreliable power supply. Additionally, it includes on-grid technologies and business models that are interesting for new and emerging solar markets with stable power grids, such as smart data analytics or digital asset management for utility-scale solar power plants.

The report was produced jointly by SolarPower Europe’s Emerging Markets Task Force and Digitalisation & Solar Task Force, with valuable support from the Alliance of Rural Electrification (ARE), GOGLA and the Energy Web Foundation.
