Digitalisation and Solar in Emerging Markets

Digitalisation and Solar in Emerging Markets image
SolarPower Europe presents case studies that showcase the advantages of digitalisation in the face of the new solar wave
Digital solar is indeed a key pillar of the global energy transition in all segments of economy and society. On the one hand, digital solar technologies and business models such as solar-based microgrids and pay-as-you-go for solar, enable access to energy in off-grid contexts or regions with unreliable power supply. On the other hand, on-grid technologies and business models 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.

This report has been 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. With this report, SolarPower Europe aim to show to policy makers, international institutions, public and private companies and end consumers how agile and versatile digital solar is. It provides answers to the world’s most pressing challenges, including ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all – Sustainable Development Goal 7 of the United Nations.
