Efficiency for Access has awarded nine clean energy innovators grants to accelerate efficient appliance development and Sure Chill is one of the successful awardees.
This is the first round of funding from E4A’s new R&D grant which is funded by UK Aid. The UK Minister for Africa Harriet Baldwin said: “As climate extremes worsen, it is the world’s poorest countries and communities that will be most affected. If we are serious about tackling climate change, we need to change the way we do business.”
“UK aid is investing in research and development projects like this to make power more accessible, but also cleaner and more efficient, for those in need,” she added.
Nigel Saunders, Chief Executive Officer at Sure Chill, said:
“Our award-winning technology has the ability to remain perfectly cool for long periods without power, so is perfectly suited to places where there is no power or intermittent power. This award allows us to continue to develop applications of our technology with an even greater impact on everyday lives.”
These projects aim to accelerate the affordability, availability, efficiency and performance of a range of low energy inclusive appliances that are suited to developing country markets and promote social inclusion and achievement of the Sustainable Development Global Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
