University of Edinburgh logoCome and join the launch of an exciting initiative scoring off-grid solar products according to their repairability and recyclability. The Off-Grid Solar Scorecard aims to improve the design of solar products to make them easier to disassemble and fix or dispose of their component materials in a safe and responsible manner. This side event will unveil the first version of an open-source website that already includes 60+ products available in India and Kenya. You are invited to come and share your feedback on the future of this initiative, its impact and ways the sector can work together to improve the design of its products.

Lead by Dr Jamie Cross and Declan Murray of the University of Edinburgh, this is a great event for distributors, manufacturers, investors and designers of off-grid solar products.
