The SelfChill Team

We are a cooperation of different institutions with the same goal: Promote the use of solar energy for refrigeration. Our focus are agricultural value chains in rural areas of the tropics and subtropics. Our strategy, the distribution of key components to facilitate the local production of solar cooling systems with a modular design. The SelfChill aproach!
