Schultz, Christoph / Doluweera, Ganesh / 2010. Best practices for developing a solar home lighting system market.
Journal of African Business, 12: 330-346.

Access to electricity and home lighting are considered essential for a higher quality of life. Approximately 1.4 billion people rely on fuel-based lighting for home illumination. Thus, it has been argued, a substantial market exists for affordable home lighting products. Solid state lighting is a technology that can be employed for sustainable home lighting. In this article the authors present experiences and lessons learned from projects that ‘‘Light Up The World’’ has supported to deliver solid state home lighting products to rural households in developing countries. Best practices for business developments to serve the home lighting market in Africa are also proposed.
