Off-grid opportunities in Africa's energy sector

The off-grid solar energy industry is generating thousands of jobs across East, West and Central Africa as well as South Asia. GOGLA's latest report Off-Grid Solar. A Growth Engine for Jobs estimates the sector currently supports 370,000 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs across these four regions. The research was realized with support from GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) and vivideconomics.

Key Findings

1. Out of the estimated 370,000 FTE jobs the off-grid solar industry has generated, 56% are currently based in rural areas.

2. With investments and the right policies, the off-grid solar sector could create 1.3 million FTE jobs across East, West and Central Africa as well as South Asia by 2022.

3. Out of the estimated 1.3 million FTE jobs to be generated by the off-grid solar sector, women will account for 350,000 jobs by 2022.
