A refrigerator as a social, economic and ecological project
About 2 billion people have no access to a power grid, or if they do, then only to an unstable power grid with blackouts that can last for days. That is why 30 to 50 million generators are in use worldwide, which corresponds to the energy production of 700 to 1000 medium-sized coal-fired power plants.
According to recent studies by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 35% of all food on earth spoils due to lack of refrigeration. Worldwide, more than 1.3 billion people currently live in households without any electricity supply - 600 million of them in Africa alone.
When operating cooling units with solar power supply that have been offered on the market so far, the additional use of an inverter as well as a battery storage system is required. The use of this operating system is severely limited by both the high costs and the limited service life of the batteries.
The patented ice storage technology used by GLOBAL ICE TEC AG enables operation even without a permanent power supply. The UNOCOOL® 165 DC is supplied with electrical energy via a photovoltaic system (direct current/10-40 V) and does not need a battery storage unit at all!
