This paper presents an analysis of the performance of off-grid refrigerators based on data generated via laboratory and field testing processes. The paper includes an introduction of an off-grid refrigerator performance testing methodology developed in support of the Global LEAP program. The test method was used to establish a foundational understanding of the performance of commercially available off-grid refrigerators as well as assess best-in-class products for the first ever Global LEAP Off-Grid Refrigerator competition. The paper then further explores the importance of conducting field-testing as a complement to lab-testing to assess the real-world performance of products tested in the lab using this methodology, and presents the results associated with an Innovation Cash Prize for Appropriate Design and User Experience.
