Our Approach

Where We Are...

The SUNSPOT™ team is a dedicated group of individuals who have banded together to solve one of the great remaining problems in the world:  how to replace biomass cooking in developing countries with clean, efficient solar electric cooking.  The team includes experience in solar and power electronics engineering, business, rural economic development (two of us are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers).  We have been working on this concept for nearly two years, performing testing of induction cooking, designing solar electric cooking systems, talking to people around the world about solar electric cooking, and thinking up innovative business plans.  And now we are ready to take SUNSPOT™ to the next level.

Our Story

Where We're Going...

We are currently building prototype solar electric cooking systems, working on designs for advanced technical solutions, and planning field survey and pilot projects to get more experience with the application, and to show that this technology works and can provide benefits to rural users around the world.  Look for some exciting announcements in the near future.

We are also looking for visionary partners and funders who can help us take this to the next level.
