In 2019, with support from UK aid and Power Africa, the Global LEAP Awards administered a second-round competition for highly energy-efficient, durable, off- and weak-grid appropriate refrigerators.
The Awards identified and recognized innovative early-movers and best-in-class products in the refrigerator market. All nominated off-grid refrigerators underwent evaluation by a panel of off-grid market experts and product testing according to the Global LEAP Off-Grid Refrigerator Test Method by an accredited laboratory for their efficiency, durability, and other aspects of product performance (e.g. cooling capacity, autonomy).
Detailed information about all twenty-one Winners and Finalists—including product performance data and sales contact information—is available in the 2019 Global LEAP Awards Buyer’s Guide for Outstanding Off-Grid Refrigerators.
