A new report from the World Bank sees a ten-fold explosion in mini-grid systems of solar-plus-storage to electrify millions worldwide.
According to the institution, there are currently 19,000 mini-grids that power 47 million people around the world but this number could reach up-to 490 million by 2030 with a boom of 210,000 systems, that could potentially benefit WA microgrids with renewable energy for WA agribusiness, land and project developments.
“Mini-grids are now one of the core solutions for closing the energy access gap…we are working with countries to actively mobilise public and private investment.”
– Riccardo Puliti, senior director of Energy and Extractives at the World Bank
