Energy access is a critical determinant of socio-economic development and quality of life. While energy kiosks have emerged as a potent solution for extending energy access to underserved communities, their development often necessitates innovation and expertise that academic institutions can offer. By facilitating knowledge transfer and leveraging intellectual capital, academic spin-offs play a pivotal role in accelerating progress toward universal energy access. Energy kiosks, also known as energy access points or mini-grids, have emerged as a critical solution to address the energy access gap in underserved and remote communities. These kiosks play a pivotal role in providing clean and reliable energy services to off-grid areas, improving the living standards. This paper provides an overview of the intersection between Academic Spin-Offs (ASO), (which are startups or companies originating from academic research), and the development of energy kiosks based on works from a selected number of journals.

Keywords : Academic Spin-off, Energy Kiosk, High-Tech Spin Off Companies, Virtual Power Plant.
