Description

This Note provides technical guidance on important product features and key performance metrics that may be relevant in procuring off-grid lighting products. Humanitarian crises that result from armed conflict, epidemics, famine, natural disasters and other major emergencies are all characterized by different user needs for lighting. There is also often a strong cultural context that must be taken into consideration. It is important for aid organizations to understand both the technical capabilities of off-grid lighting products and the context and needs of the end users in order to determine the most appropriate procurement specifications to meet these needs.
