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), Pakistan) and Hadley Taylor (MicroEnergy International (MEI), Germany)


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 micro-financing 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 dis-aggregated, 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 micro-financed SHS program in rural off-grid communities is highly demanded by the rural, poor, off-grid residents.[1]
