The U.S. Trade and Development Agency has signed a grant aimed at increasing electricity access in Zambia.

This grant follows a partnership between USTDA and Zambian company Standard Microgrid Initiatives Limited on a study that supports the deployment of containerized minigrid units in rural and peri-urban districts in Zambia.

The project is anticipated to be the first large-scale deployment of solar with battery storage mini-grids in the country that utilizes U.S. technology solutions.
