The off-grid solar industry is showing early signs of a slow but uneven recovery from the adverse economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to GOGLA’s off-grid solar market report (H2 2020). However, the report notes that “targeted support remains critical for safeguarding the industry and its vital contribution to energy access and other development goals.” Software solutions like Angaza, which are designed to streamline last-mile distribution of affordable solar energy products, alongside investors and stakeholders in the off-grid solar community, are well-situated to help bolster the industry as it continues to recover from unprecedented economic challenges.
