In January 2019, PATH and the Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF) partnered with the government of Senegal to evaluate a smart energy management device attached to certain solar vaccine refrigerators that would enable health workers to use electric devices in areas with limited or unreliable power. Called an energy harvest control (EHC), the device consists of a smart switch that takes excess power generated from solar panels already powering the refrigerators and safely allows the energy to be used for devices such as lights, fans, mobile phones, and some medical devices.
