Case study: Koolboks helping to enhance access to affordable refrigeration

In 2020, the for-profit company, Koolboks, launched an innovative cooling-as-a-service (CaaS) model that allows customers to access cooling services at an affordable cost. In contrast to other service providers that offer CaaS models based on centralised cooling hubs, Koolboks’ CaaS model focuses on decentralised cooling solutions that can be used by individuals or small groups of customers.
