Expert speakers will show examples of how solar food processing can be a profitable business venture. The panelist speakers will present case studies where individuals and companies use solar cooking techniques to earn their living and have made a successful and professional business.
Solar food processing is an innovative and multi-faceted technique capable of addressing various problems faced by people in the developing world. The implementation of technologies for food processing and conservation using solar energy can indirectly help to reduce poverty, improve health conditions, create sustainable local economic opportunities, and limit environmental damage by promoting the use of clean and renewable energy sources.

Recording: Webinar on Solar Cooking
You have missed the ISES Webinar? Solar Cooking Around the World: Challenges, Solutions and Best Practices
No problem. The video recording can be viewed here.
This webinar focused on current examples of the use of solar cookers and on recent technical advances in this technology. The speakers presented a comparative analysis of the development of solar cooking technology in different latitudes with various cultural parameters and energy situations.
Moderator, Speakers & Presentations
The moderator of the webinar is Celestino Rodrigues Ruivo, Professor of Mechanical Engineering (Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, Air-Conditioning) at ISE of University of Algarve, Portugal and advocate of solar cooking since July 2006.
Presentations & Speakers
- Solar Cookers for Community Cooking by Prof. Ajay Chandak, Founder and chairperson of voluntary group PRINCE (Promoters, Researchers, Innovators in New & Clean Energy) of India and Member of the ISES Board of Directors.
- Solar Cookers in Chile: Technical, Political and Socio-cultural Issues by Pedro Serrano, Director, Extreme Unit Architecture, Technical University Federico Santa Maria, Chile
- Solar Cooking: Current Best Practices, Commercial and Humanitarian by Patricia McArdle, Editor of "Solar Cooker Review", USA
The presentations was followed by an interactive Q&A with the moderator and the speakers.
Solar Food Processing Network India founded
As a result of the 1st Solar Food Processing Network Workshop an Indian Solar Food Network was established in order to accelerate the utilisation of renewable energy in food processing.

Welcome to Solar Food Processing Network
The aim of the Solar Food Processing Network is to establish a global network of interested parties (NGOs, politicians, farmers, and experts) in order to develop and promote efficient methods of solar food processing and conservation.
The implementation of solar-based technologies for food processing and conservation can help to reduce poverty, improve local economic opportunities and health conditions, and reduce environmental damage. Particularly, in countries with a high solar radiation potential, proper solar technologies can contribute to the sustainable development of small rural communities.
The Solar Food Processing Network is managed by the German NGO “Solare Zukunft” which means “Solar Future” in English (http://www.solarezukunft.org). It is financially supported by WISIONS (http://www.wisions.net) an initiative of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy to foster practical sustainable energy projects. The network was developed and is still managed by Rolf Behringer.
