About the Solstroem programme
The Solstroem programme is enabling the issuing of quantifiable CO2 emissions reductions based on the Solar Home Systems and solar off-grid installations deployed by programme partners in developing and emerging economies. These programme partners (solar companies) are registered business entities in their geographies of activity, whose primary business is to provide clean energy access to rural and otherwise unserved communities. The scope of application of the programme is restricted to geographies where the deploying of off-grid solar (primarily Solar Home Systems) through a lease-to-own or pay-as-you-go (PAYG) model is currently taking place or has the potential to be rolled out. In practical terms this primarily means countries in Latin America, Africa, and South and Southeast Asia.
