Demand Assessment of Solar Electrification in Off-Grid Rural Communities of Pakistan through Microfinancing of Solar Home Systems

Presenters: Warda Ajaz (Partners in Sustainable Development (PSD)) and Hadley Taylor (MicroEnergy International (MEI))


Overview

This paper documents the findings of a Demand Assessment study to facilitate a scale-up of the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund’s off-grid solar electrification program, through microfinancing solar home systems in Pakistan. The project was funded by Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Program of the GIZ Pakistan and was implemented by MicroEnergy International, Germany, with the support of Partners in Sustainable Development, Pakistan, as their local partner. A gender disaggregated, qualitative as well as quantitative demand assessment was conducted in three districts i.e. Chakwal, Khushab and Thatta, through household surveys and focus group discussions. The results depicted that introducing a microfinanced SHS program in rural off-grid communities is highly demanded by the rural, poor, off-grid residents.[1]
