A Solar Fuelled Cold Chain
Global Cold Chain Alliance has noted that the Cold Chain is positioned to take full advantage of solar energy and is even starting to emerge as a key player in this space.
In regards to this resource which can be used to lower power bills, carbon footprints and combat increasing energy prices on a macro scale, the group noted online that: “While most sectors can benefit from solar energy, the cold chain is uniquely positioned to take full advantage – and is emerging as a leader in the adoption of this technology”.
The presence of solar tech is indeed prevalent in parts of today’s cold chain for example in a collaboration with WHO (World Health Organisation) and PATH, Optimize explored the development of battery free solar direct-drive refrigerators for vaccines within the cold chain.
