Solar home systems: Growth, diversification, and push back

Solar home systems: Growth, diversification, and push back

22 March 2023 to 22 March 2023


The solar home system market is showing signs of increasing maturity, with the largest companies raising more and more funds. Business models and supply chains are becoming more established and have proven resilient during the economic challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, and companies are increasingly diversifying to maximise sales to their existing customer base.

There has also been some push back. Consumer finance-based business models continue to attract controversy, with recent high profile critical press coverage of customers accruing high levels of debt.

Join African Energy for a roundtable discussion of  this fast-moving sector. Held under the Chatham House Rule, topics to be covered include:

  • Trends in financing for solar home system companies, including emerging financial structures and local currency.
  • Ensuring portfolio quality and safeguarding against indebtedness.
  • Diversification into new areas.
  • Market trends in policy regulation and global supply chain challenges.

Part of African Energy’s monthly AIX membership programme of online meetings.

The meeting is free for all AIX members and African Energy subscribers
