Greenpeace solar-powered fridge

The UK’s fridge mountain is already too big to climb, even if you’re Sir Ranulph Fiennes with a tent-load of crampons. Humankind needs to figure out a new way to keep our cheese cool, and Greenpeace may have the answer. Its SolarChill fridge – which was developed together with six other organisations – recently scooped the Environmental Pioneer in Refridgeration award in the 2006 Cooling Industry awards.

It operates using solar energy, uses environmentally safe refrigerants, and doesn’t need lead batteries. Greenpeace hopes it will eventually replace the nasty old kerosene fridges that produce between 73 and 91 million kilograms of CO2 every year. More importantly, you could have one in your garden to ensure there’s always a cold beer to hand. We have our priorities straight, you understand…
