Publication - Off- and Weak-Grid Appliance Market: Nigeria
Insufficient data about off-grid appropriate appliances makes it difficult for manufacturers, policymakers, distributors, mini-grid operators, investors, and other market actors to make informed decisions and identify high quality, efficient products sold in their region.To help address this challenge, Efficiency for Access has worked to gather data on the availability of off-grid appropriate appliances in key countries, including Nigeria. The Off- and Weak-Grid Appliance Market Country Profile for Nigeria analyses four types of off-grid appliances surveyed in 2018 and 2020—TVs, fans, refrigerators and SWPs. In 2020, Efficiency for Access expanded the survey to collect data on other off-grid appliances found in the market, and to document the type of connectors or plugs integrated into or sold with the product. The country profile explores the overall market landscape in Nigeria, the common power type, size, price, and warranty of off-grid appliances sold in retail markets, and other findings relevant to sector stakeholders working in Nigeria.
