About the project

UK-registered Partner: King’s College London – Wei He

Fisheries constitute a major source of livelihood in Nigeria. In 2014, 713,036 people were engaged in fisheries with 21% of this total being women. This project aims to improve the partner’s capability in system design using solar energy and cold energy storage and enable their solar-powered products to be economic-viable for fish/meat storage.
