Moving ahead with solar cookers; acceptance and introduction to the market (pp. 33) 1999

Published by GTZ, this book records the progress of a solar cooker pilot programme, including a comparative field test under real-life conditions. This entailed a prolonged period of proof testing by the users themselves. The book deals primarily with the empirical results that have been gleaned from the pilot programme to date. It shows that under good conditions, solar cooking can be successful where the users are convinced that this is the right technology. This is a useful and detailed book showing the positive side of solar cooking as well as the constraints
