Quality Assurance Framework for Mini-Grid Power Systems

14 November 2016

Providing clean and affordable energy services to the more than 1 billion people globally who lack access to electricity is a critical driver for poverty reduction, economic development, improved health, and social outcomes. To address some of the challenges to providing safe, quality, and financially viable mini-grid power systems to remote customers, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP) teamed with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to develop a Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) for isolated minigrids.
