Posted by Naveen on April 4th 2017

A Pune based start-up Thermal Energy Service Solutions Private Limited (TESSOL) won the prestigious Startup Energy Transition award instituted by the Deutsche Energie–Agentur, the German Energy Agency. The award was for innovative business ideas in energy transition in the ‘Mobility meets Energy Transition’ category for the cold chain technology, which is based on patented thermal energy storage technology. The company has already customised 200 cold chain vehicles with modular TES units for bakeries, fruit and vegetable vendors, dairy and ice cream manufacturers and e-commerce, food processing, poultry and seafood companies.
The Plug-and-chill system for refrigerated transport of perishables ( mobile refrigeration technology) concept won global attention at the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue in March 2017. It was one of the six winners and the other five winners were from France, Germany, Bangladesh and Nigeria,  who were selected from more than 500 entries from 66 countries  at the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue.
The company - Thermal Energy Service Solutions Private Limited (TESSOL), was founded by Rajat Gupta, an alumnus of IIT-Delhi and Harvard University in 2013. The company’s patented technology permits cold chain vehicles to obviate the use of diesel fuel for refrigeration with an aim to provide energy efficient and fuel saving refrigeration technologies for cold chain storage and logistic. The international jury chose Tessol because cooling systems can have high impact in increasing the efficiency of food supply worldwide. Tessol, according to the jury, was able to clearly demonstrate the benefits of their technology in reducing carbon emissions and fossil fuel consumption.
