In contrast to PV eCook, higher levels of access to grids with frequent blackouts and more favourable enabling environments make South and Southeast Asia, Southern Africa and Latin America more viable contexts for Grid-eCook (Figure ).  Grid-eCook uses an AC battery charger to create distributed HH storage for unreliable or unbalanced grids and is expected to best meet the needs of people living in urban slums or peri-urban areas at the fringes of the grid (or on a mini-grid) where blackouts are common.
