IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-1-300111
LEIA is a unique £20m FCDO research and innovation programme focused on improving the efficiency, performance, and availability of a range of super-efficient electrical appliances and solar powered technologies suited to off- and weak-grid settings, while lowering their cost for consumers in developing countries (especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and the Indo-Pacific region), with particular benefits for women and girls upon whom the burden of manual labour and drudgery otherwise falls hardest. This includes electrical appliances that deliver critical energy services such as refrigeration, cooling, and communications (e.g., fridges, fans, TVs, solar water pumps), and technological innovations in areas such as advanced refrigeration, agricultural processing, electric cooking, and electric motors. LEIA is delivered through two leading specialist non-profits, the UK-based Energy Saving Trust (EST) and the US-based Collaborative Labelling and Appliance Standard Program (CLASP).
