Solar Powered Vaccine refrigerators are designed to store vaccines and other medical products at a stable temperature to ensure they do not degrade. In developing countries with a sunny climate, solar-powered vaccine refrigerators are common. Many vaccines must be stored at low temperatures, some below -15 °C, and others between 2 and 8 °C. If vaccines are not stored correctly, they can lose their effectiveness. The ideal temperature for storing vaccines in the ILR is +2 degrees to + 8 degrees According to the Centre for Disease Control, failure to adhere to recommended specifications for storage and handling of immunobiology’s can reduce or destroy their potency, resulting in inadequate or no immune response in the recipient. Maintenance of vaccine quality is the shared responsibility of all handlers of vaccines from the time a vaccine is manufactured until administration. According to the Immunization Action Coalition, all vaccines should be stored in a refrigerator or freezer that is designed specifically for the storage of biologics or, alternatively, in a separate dedicated unit. A dorm-style combination refrigerator-freezer unit with just one exterior door has been shown to be unacceptable no matter where the vaccine was placed inside the unit. Stand-alone refrigerator or freezer units are best for storage needs. With retail pharmacies now playing a major role in pneumonia, influenza and shingles immunization programs, the value of critical vaccines being stored in pharmacy refrigerators has reached a new high. In fact, it is not uncommon for many pharmacies to now have over $100,000 of product in a single refrigerator during peak seasons.


COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The COVID pandemic, and now finally, the vaccination push across the world against the disease has put the spotlight firmly on the role distributed solar products, particularly Solar refrigeration could play
  • Rockwell Industries Ltd, a commercial cold chain appliances manufacture, Thursday launched its new product called 'Chillermill' here. The product is both a freezer and chiller useful to store COVID-19 vaccine at the required temperatures.
  • The Vaccine Alliance – began buying and installing solar-powered fridges to store vaccines throughout the region. The idea would be a gamechanger for regional and district health workers who often struggle to carry out routine immunizations for children in places with unreliable electricity and cold storage facilities.

Top Impacting Factors

Solar refrigeration was an encouraging development in the early 1980s, providing a substitute for the absorption technology to meet cold chain requirements in remote areas with finite or no electric power. At present, various solar refrigeration models prequalified by the World Health Organization (WHO) are in use. A fresh approach in solar-based refrigeration has emerged, wherein the newly designed solar refrigerator has gotten rid of the need for high priced energy storage batteries employed to power solar refrigerators. This technology called solar direct drive technology uses solar energy to directly freeze water or other cold storage material (for instance, refrigerant) and then, uses the energy stored in the frozen bank to keep the refrigerator cold during nights and rainy days when the upcoming solar energy is not within easy reach.

Market Trends

  • Solar-powered vaccine refrigerators, also called off-grid photovoltaic (PV) systems, are put to use to maintain a continues temperature suitable for storing vaccines in clinics
  • In solar-powered vaccine refrigerators, photovoltaic modules transmute the solar energy directly into electricity, which is further employed to power the compressor of the vaccine refrigerator. On the other hand, rechargeable batteries are also used to store electric energy. The charge controller regulates the flow of electricity to protect batteries from over-discharging and overcharging.
  • Use of solar-based refrigeration for vaccine storage is a major development in the global health care industry. It is useful for remote areas, where electricity is not available in sufficient amounts. The global health care industry has witnessed rapid growth in the recent years. Growing elderly population worldwide, high prevalence of chronic diseases, and advancements in innovative digital technologies are some of the major factors driving the global health care industry.
  • Electricity rates are inherently turbulent. They fluctuate seasonally, monthly, and annually. Over the last decade, electricity prices had increased enormously and they are poised to increase even more during the forecast period. This, in turn, is projected to rise the demand for use of the solar technology for storage of vaccines in the near future.
  • There exists high demand for exploration of sustainable and clean sources for energy, as the world tries to limit emissions and targets to reach net zero carbon emissions
  • Government support in the form of favorable initiatives has driven usage of the solar technology over the last few years. This is estimated to be a major factor driving the global solar-powered vaccine refrigerator market during the forecast period. For instance, the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has passed a tender, wherein the government would be offering 30% subsidy to the social sector, the residential sector, private and not-for-profit organizations in the field of education, and health care institutions.
