Climatescope Off-Grid Market Update

Climatescope tracks the conditions for clean energy investment on and off the grid, and provides a wealth of publicly-available information on 58 emerging markets in Africa, Asia and Latin America & the Caribbean. The site has attracted tens of thousands of visitors since the re-launch in December 2016, tracking the energy transition in emerging markets. We are pleased to announce a series of new enhancements.

What’s new

Quarterly Off-grid Market Outlooks
Discover the latest developments in distributed energy and electrification in emerging or remote markets, gathered every quarter by Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s new Frontier Power team. Find them under Insights > Off-grid Quarterly.

The Off-grid Data Hub
For the first time, the data hub allows users to discover all of the Climatescope dedicated ‘off-grid’ sub-indicators. These include qualitative and quantitative information, such as energy access policies and budgets, mini-grid development regulation, electricity prices, and pico-solar market access conditions. Find it under Resources > Off-grid Data Hub.


In addition to adding new features related to the off-grid market, we made key updates to existing features.

Country profiles
Power sector structures now include country-specific notes for each sub-indicator that can be visualized when hovering over them. Installed capacity charts now allow the user to visualize the full capacity mix split by technology.

Country comparison tool
Use the tool to compare where countries stack up in Climatescope. The tool now includes all the indicators found on country profiles including their price attractiveness for clean energy development, financing levels, policy environments, and more.

Policy library
The library contains well over 800 policies described in simple language, and links to underlying texts such as legislation and regulation. The library now has a new filter that allows you to sort policies by the most important renewable energy policy types, such as auctions or feed-in tariffs.
