Off-Grid Refrigeration Competition

Global LEAP, USAID'S U.S. Global Development Lab and Power Africa are calling all tinkerers, scientists, refrigeration and off-grid energy experts, to give feedback on how they might design and structure their new competition.

The Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (LEAP) has recently launched their Off-Grid Refrigeration Competition. Global LEAP has partnered with USAID's U.S. Global Development Lab and Power Africa to issue a joint call for off-grid refrigeration solutions. Our implementing partner, Energy 4 Impact has been involved in the ongoing design of the prize. 

As part of the first call for innovations under Scaling Off-Grid Energy: A Grand Challenge for Development, the Off-Grid Refrigeration Competition will reward advancements in off-grid refrigeration technology,as well as the most promising commercial models.

LEAP is looking for feedback on how they might design and structure the Competition. If you have insights, please comment in full, or on a section most relevant to your knowledge, on their open Request for Information.
