PATH and the Solar Electric Light Fund are pleased to announce upcoming field evaluations of cold chain equipment with energy harvesting control (EHC) features. EHC appliance features allow solar direct drive refrigerators to power devices such as lights and cell phones while keeping vaccines at appropriate temperatures. EHC must use only excess energy to power devices other than the refrigerator—energy the refrigerator does not need to keep vaccines at appropriate temperatures.
Manufacturers that want to participate in the field evaluation are invited to contact PATH if their product meets World Health Organization Performance, Quality and Safety specifications (PQS_E007_EHC1.1).
