He was joined by a panel of other experts, and discussed the challenges and opportunities for cooling in off-grid villages, with an eye on environmental, health and development issues.

Promethean’s work focuses on India’s rural dairy industry, where their products have enabled the reliable preservation and storage of perishable food items in off-grid and partially electrified areas, without the need for diesel generators.
