Uganda Off-Grid Lighting Assessment12 December 2014 Market Intelligence & Trends Uganda
This market assessment was based on a demand survey of 845 households; a supply survey of 103 retailers; and interviews with main importers/distributors and with institutions and market influencers in all four regions in Uganda.
Key findings in the report indicated that solar product end users are more aware of solar energy products and their benefits than market players, institutions and NGOs/donors realise. These users are particularly interested in mobile phone charging, and demand is predominantly for SHS. It also indicates that the solar market in Uganda is immature and dispersed, consisting of a multitude of relatively small companies, with hardly any large (multinational) corporations active in the sector.
