Solar Cold Chain Provides Fresh Cold Storage Solution for Sub-Saharan Region

cold chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of refrigerated production, storage and distribution activities, along with associated equipment and logistics, which maintain quality via a desired low-temperature range. It is used to preserve and to extend and ensure the shelf life of products, such as fresh agricultural produce, seafood, frozen food, photographic film, chemicals, and pharmaceutical products. Such products, during transport and when in transient storage, are sometimes called cool cargo. Unlike other goods or merchandise, cold chain goods are perishable and always en route towards end-user or destination, even when held temporarily in cold stores and hence commonly referred to as “cargo” during its entire logistics cycle.

Modern cold chains manage the temperature of perishable goods from farm to table, maintaining quality and safety in the supply chain, reducing food loss and increasing food supplies. However, the technology is often out of reach in off-grid areas in developing markets due to its cost, a lack of access to reliable electricity, and the wide variety of uncoordinated stakeholders in the broader cold chain.

Solar Run has developed one whole series of solar solutions to keep fresh food and try to help local farmers/ small shop holders to increase income. These solutions will benefit dozens, thousands and even tens of thousands of rural farmers, for those in a world where an estimated 1.1 billion people live without reliable electricity and basic cooling services. Scarcely 4 percent of India’s food moves through cold chains. Roughly half of Nigeria’s 186 million people have little or no access to refrigeration. We estimate that with the cold chain solution, smallholder farmers will be able to increase their annual income by 25% and create more job opportunities for women.

Sometimes When We Light — A Brand New Product from Solar Run

It took some time to give a nice name to this new off-grid solar system product.
Someone thought I torch is a good name, however, it is not a torch, strictly to say.

Someone prefers You Lite, but actually, the one who gives the light should use the first perspective.
And someone chooses I lite instead, but we thought it could not tell the special characters of this new machine.

Then, someone in our team said, why not use We lite? You needn’t tell whose perspective it is, and We Lite can also correctly describe the remote situation of the twin lights.
That is how we named this product.

Check out this We lite, a combination of two separate lighting projects. The largest is a lantern with 4 levels of brightness from 15 to 300 lumens. This design allows the lantern to work for up to 70 hours, while a full charge only takes 4.5 hours. The waterproof function makes the lantern easy to use in different environments.

The surprise came when we moved our eyes to the little flashlight. Yes, it’s a real flashlight, but also a remote control for the lantern. You can use this flashlight to control lanterns within 5 meters. And the remote control flashlight can also be used as a desk lamp if placed on the table. Obviously, multi-functionality is the original intention of the design. Solar Run recommends an all-around lighting product named We lite.

What’s more, We lite has met lighting global quality standards. From now on, it can be found in markets and stores around the world, especially in developing countries supported by the Lighting Global Project.

Many Hard Lessons Ahead in Great Green Economy Gambit

By Wang Wen

A global battle for a green and low-carbon economy is quietly taking place. This is yet another big 2020 event that could not have been anticipated.

The United Nations and relevant countries held the Climate Ambition Summit on Saturday to mark the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement and to further mobilize the international community to strengthen action and promote worldwide cooperation in the fight against climate change.

Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered a speech via video link at the summit, putting forward three proposals regarding global climate governance and making four further commitments to scale up China’s determined contributions. The commitments include lowering its carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP by over 65 percent from the 2005 level, and increasing the share of non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption. They also involve increasing forest stock volume, and enhancing wind and solar power.

China, in September, for the first time, put forward a goal of achieving carbon neutrality before 2060, and peaking carbon dioxide emissions before 2030. It also vowed to launch a new journey of ecological civilization as part of its 14th Five-Year plan (2021-25). The nation has thus entered a green and low-carbon era.

Some other countries have also made efforts in this field. The European Commission in March presented a proposal to enshrine in legislation the EU’s political commitment to be climate neutral by 2050. Japan and South Korea in October set the goal of being carbon neutral by 2050 as well. US president-elect Joe Biden pledged to re-join the Paris Agreement and proposed to have the US achieve net zero carbon emissions by the middle of the century.

The goal of carbon neutrality will enable the global economy to enter a new international pattern with low carbon and sustainable development as the core. It will also promote other small and medium-sized countries to participate in the “battle for a low-carbon economy.” So far, more than 110 countries have committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050.

This means that the green sustainable and low-carbon competition will become the main keynote for the third decade of the 21st century. The establishment of a new pattern of low carbon will bring about a fresh layout of industry, as well as new markets. Among them, the most promising one is the international carbon financial market, which includes various instruments, such as carbon emissions trading, carbon securities and carbon derivatives. This fully meets the financing and risk management requirements for global green development.

The new economic construct and ensuing competition over the goal of carbon neutrality will bring about large demands for investment and capital. Against this backdrop, the carbon market will be promoted into a new market with similar scale and status to existing markets: stock, foreign currency and derivative products. Meanwhile, active efforts of countries are needed to set new rules and new standards that will fit this new market.

During the G20 summit on November 21-22 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, many heads of states discussed green transitions. For example, China put forward talking points regarding clean energy transition and the construction of coastal flood control facilities. Japan brought up solar cell and hydrogen technology ideas. South Korea underlined issues regarding the updating of energy policies, and increasing the status of the green economy.

According to the Climate Transparency Report 2020 that was released in the second half of November, the energy-related carbon emission of the G20 members is expected to be reduced by 7.5 percent in 2020. This was to some extent a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the meantime, this matter should not be overlooked: Many countries have attached importance to clean development while striving to achieve carbon neutral goals.

Surely, the goal of this green and low-carbon economy war is not to destroy a country or group – in contrast to all previous wars. Instead, it aims to save humankind itself. If the global temperatures are to rise again, the human race may face extinction in the next century.

Obviously, this worldwide campaign for low-carbon green economy is not about who can be fiercer, but about who is more determined to grab the opportunities and seek new advantages for the future of humanity so as to push forward win-win norms.

In the new battle, China is forced to become green. During the past five years, China has promoted green finance in an all-round way, almost from scratch. Though China has become the largest green financial market in the world, it still has a lot to learn about global carbon and clean energy markets.

Why Solar Power is the Major Trend in African Market?

In sub-Saharan Africa, nearly 600 million Africans have no electricity at all, so from the satellite images taken at night, the entire area is living in darkness.

Satellite image of Africa at night

Meantime, Africa’s population is expected to be home to over a quarter of the global population by 2050. The growing population is putting increasing stress on energy grids.

The grids are already struggling to keep up with high demand, leaving 600 million people in sub-Saharan Africa without access to grid electricity and this number is keeping growing.

The inability of the grid to serve the remaining over 600 million people is why solar must play a central role in delivering power for everyone and will be the key to a more sustainable and equitable future.


Solar power will bring a brighter and more sustainable future through the ways:


Providing affordable energy

SHS are more affordable than fuel alternatives and made available at lower costs with payment terms matching the affordability of the daily disposable income.

According to a report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), more than half of the renewable capacity added in 2019 achieved lower power costs than new coal plants.

The falling cost of renewable energy will make clean energy affordable to millions of people for the first time.


Reducing pollution and improving health

SHS can replace diesel indoor kerosene lamps and candles to provide cleaner indoor air quality, reduce suffocation of kids and improve fire safety

SHS can kerosene lamps and candles

In Nigeria alone, there are nearly 1,500 deaths every year, caused by the inhaling of generator smoke and carbon monoxide. With the increasing adoption of solar energy, fewer respiratory diseases, heart conditions and a better quality of life will follow.


Promote economic growth and supporting gender equality

SHS (Solar Home System) enables revenue enhancement as it allows businesses to operate longer hours and houses to light longer hours at a lower cost than fuel.

Studies have shown that rural electrification raised female employment in electrified communities by 9.5 percent. Solar will enable an increasing number of women to be able to work and participate in economic, political and social life.


Reducing Carbon Emission

Solar energy helps to reduce CO2 pollution from traditional forms of energy, household kerosene and candle sources for houses, and diesel sources for businesses. Or centralized power grids running on fossil fuels for all.

Solar plays an important role in supporting to build of a new climate economy.

In the future, not only will solar help to minimize sub-Sahara’s greenhouse gas emissions, but also provide reliable and resilient energy networks, helping to support a thriving economy.

Solar Run Energy, with the mission to illuminate every corner in the world with sunshine, with 12 models of the solar home system meet Lighting Global/VeraSol (under World Bank) standards. The quantity ranks first in China and the third in the world.
