A 2018 Off-Grid Appliance Market Survey found refrigerators to be the fourth most demanded household appliance after lighting, televisions, and cell phones, and the second most demanded productive use appliance after solar water pumps. Further efficiency gains and cost reductions in refrigerators have the potential to help deliver higher tiers of energy access and make modern energy more accessible and cost-effective for millions of off-grid customers globally.

Over the last year, CLASP—as co-Secretariat of Efficiency for Access—convened industry experts to construct a roadmap for refrigerators. This document identifies a series of technology improvements that, if adopted, could improve the efficiency and performance for a range of refrigerator types. The roadmap also recommends a series of supporting initiatives and research topics to smooth out the development of off-grid refrigeration. Together, these components form a common starting point for further investment and industry collaboration.
