EEP SelfChill Zambia & Tanzania

Project run time:
02/2021 – 12/2022

Partners:
Phaesun GmbH, Solar Cooling Engineering UG, RESCO Ltd Tanzania, ID Solar Solutions Zambia, Fountain Gate Crafts and Trade School Zambia

Our project “SelfChill Zambia and Tanzania” aims to introduce intelligent solar-powered cooling solutions based on the SelfChill concept to improve food safety, reduce waste and increase income among small-scale farmers in Tanzania and Zambia.

The SelfChill concept focuses on the use of key components for scalable solar cooling solutions to facilitate local assembly.  Within the project different system configurations based on a modular cold water chiller will be locally assembled and installed at agricultural cooperatives, farms and schools for demonstration.

Assembly lines for SelfChill cooling systems will be established in the target countries together with the local industry partners. A technical training course will be introduced in cooperation with the local vocational training institution in order to develop technical capacities regarding design, assembling, installation and maintenance of the introduced solar cooling solutions. Awareness building measures will be operated to sensitize stakeholders.

The project “SelfChill Zambia and Tanzania” is supported by the Energy and Environment Partnership Trust Fund (EEP Africa). This is a clean energy financing facility hosted and managed by the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) with funding from Austria, Finland and NDF. It is guided by a vision for a climate-resilient, zero-carbon future with the aim of contributing to the achievement of the Paris Agreement on climate change and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
