Your inconspicuous refrigerator, running 24/7 days a week, is the source of 20-40% of your electricity bill. When added to commercial and industrial refrigerators and freezers, refrigeration is one of the largest uses of electricity globally – over 1.8 trillion kWh per year. Kazi’s team developed the first commercial technology of its sort: a rapid, pulsed de-icing system that nearly eliminates the energy intensive defrost process all refrigeration units suffer, thereby increasing their efficiency by up to 30%. In partnership with several global OEMs, Betterfrost has commercialized this technology for residential and light-commercial refrigerators, and is currently working to apply this technology to industrial refrigeration solutions.
