Mini Grids

Mini grids are becoming a scalable option for expanding energy services in Sub-Saharan Africa, parts of South Asia, and Small Island Developing States. Aided by new technologies, stronger policies, and innovative business models, mini grids now have the potential to provide quality energy for productive uses to communities that would otherwise wait years for a grid connection. ESMAP’s Global Facility on Mini Grids works to increase World Bank investments in mini grids while generating knowledge on the factors affecting mini grid scale-up.
