  • The University of Birmingham is a research partner on the ISA Solar Cooling Initiative (I-SCI)
  • The collaboration will help spread the use of solar and solar-hybrid energy linked cold-chains and cooling systems for agricultural use
  • 28 countries have joined this program to install 270,000 solar water pumps
  • ISA has launched a global aggregation and price discovery tender for the program

The University of Birmingham has launched a new project to build on its research partnership with the India-led International Solar Alliance (ISA) and help farmers in “sun-rich” countries make the most of chilled food distribution systems powered by solar and solar-hybrid solutions, reported PTI.

The University of Birmingham is a research partner on the ISA Solar Cooling Initiative (I-SCI), which will help spread the use of solar and solar-hybrid energy linked cold-chains and cooling systems for agricultural use in countries in the Tropics, such as India, Egypt and Brazil. 

The goal
The university, in collaboration with India’s National Centre for Cold-chain Development (NCCD), will explore opportunities to drive forward ISA’s agenda. The agenda is to research, plan and deliver such technologies in ISA member countries, located between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. 

Upendra Tripathy, the director-general of ISA informed PTI that this project will align with the ISA’s first program ‘Scaling Solar for Applications in the Agricultural Use’. He further mentioned that it is noteworthy that 28 countries have joined this program to install 270,000 solar water pumps. For this ISA has launched a global aggregation and price discovery tender.
