Gist in zero-carbon refrigeration trial with Sunswap


 

Gist has partnered with an engineering firm to trial a zero-emission, solar and battery powered transport refrigeration unit (TRU) within its temperature controlled fleet. Start-up firm Sunswap has developed the technology, which it said relies on energy prediction software, adaptive battery capacity and a solar energy recovery system to decarbonise refrigerated trailers in the cold chain. Depending on weather conditions, Sunswap’s solar panels on the Endurance TRU can provide 65-80% of the charge needed throughout the year to operate the […]
