There's a global scramble to drive down emissions of carbon dioxide across the various sectors around the world.
The use of renewable energy sources is nothing new and vastly applied to propel the things in our life. One such Innovative green product, a solar-powered refrigerator, which can be very useful in far off remote places where there is no continuous supply of electricity.
These portable solar refrigerators may be most commonly used in the developing world to help mitigate poverty, emergency application during natural disasters and climate change.

A number of solar refrigerators have been developed, and they are being used successfully. In Maruata village, located on Mexican Pacific Coast, the fishermen use the solar refrigerator for keeping the fishes fresh.
Also, Innovators at NASA's Johnson Space Center have patented a proven, solar-powered refrigeration system that eliminates reliance on an electric grid, requires no batteries, and stores thermal energy for efficient use when sunlight is absent.
