Albedo solar cooker prototype, 2-20-13

The Albedo solar cooker being developed by Dytecna and Oxford University

The Albedo (which means ‘reflective index’) solar cooker, is still in the prototype stage in 2013. It is being developed by Dytecna, located in Worcestershire, UK and Isis Innovation Ltd, the technology transfer company of the University of Oxford.

the parabolic solar cooker, which focuses light from below, contains no electronics, is purely mechanical, cheap and robust, and is easy to assemble and operate, according to the designers. The Albedo will provide heating in excess of 200°C (392°F) in a small oven mounted on a portable work surface at a comfortable height. The Albedo oven and reflectors are supplied in a flat-pack system making it easy to transport, a critical and unique attribute. The reflectors are made flat, but form perfectly curved surfaces when assembled without the need for skilled labor. It appears the oven may remain stationary, while the reflector will rotate to maintain orientation to the sun.
