SOLAREF, 100% autonomous solar ice fridge
International interest

The diffusion of SOLAREF’s autonomous solar ice refrigerators in developing countries is based on the co-operative trade. The goal is to help under developed countries creating new jobs with the service needed by this innovation.

Thus, local units to the countries of sale are installed. These units, which form and employ local labor, have responsibility of the assembly, the installation and after sale of autonomous solar ice fridges, on the field sites. This way of diffusion, generator of employment, allows to widen the services suggested by companies and/or organizations already present on the field.

Since the beginning of developments, Swiss NGO CEAS is integrated in the plan of cooperative trade. One service center will be created very soon in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) in CEAS’s delegation in that place. 2 new centers will be created in 2009-2010 in Senegal and MADAGASCAR, still in CEAS’s delegations.

SOLAREF won several international prizes, as mentioned in the presentation.
