cleanstart blue green

This event is targeted at those interested in learning more about off-grid energy customers, and the ‘demand side’ of energy access. UNCDF will present planned research into the ‘energy ladder’ – the journey customers go on after they buy their first solar product or service – and seek input on how to make this as useful and relevant as possible to stakeholders. Participants will have the chance to briefly share their own plans for customer research over the coming year. Together with partners, UNCDF wants to wants to explore ways to improve collaboration and sharing of research findings. Ideas for consideration include a monthly customer research webinar; an online resource hub/web portal, and a joint plan for presentation of findings at key events. We hope the event will lead to more collaboration amongst research organisations in 2016, whilst making it easier for other stakeholders to hear about the latest findings so that they can make better-informed decisions.
