Large areas of many developing countries have no grid electricity. According to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) World Energy Outlook (2015) report, 1.2 billion people lacked access to electricity in 2013, which is equivalent to more than 16 percent of the world population. The research reported by IEA (2015) showed that more than 95 percent of those living without electricity live in rural areas, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa and developing Asia where there is no distribution grid for electricity, and there are no prospects of the grid reaching them in the near future see Figure 1. Even in areas with grid power, the demand for electricity has outpaced supply resulting in unreliable electricity availability, insufficient for continuous refrigeration.
