Matthew Rollins announced in March 2013 the formation of a new company, Applied Green Technology, which will include solar cooking and electrical innovators, plastic specialists, and business management advisors. They are interested in providing low cost cooking and electrical lighting solutions for developing countries, and up–market “Green” products for quality retail markets. One goal is to find a replacement for the typical cooking bag and metal cook pot used with solar panel cookers, by creating healthy heat resistant plastic alternatives. They are also examining new ideas for wind driven electrical generation.
Recent news and developments
- November 2013: Matthew Rollins continues to be quite active encouraging sales of his solar cooker in both established and emerging global markets - A.G. Karim, chairman of The Lady Fatemah Trust, based in the United Kingdom, has agreed to finance several thousand solar cookers designed by Matthew Rollins of Applied Green Technology, to be delivered to Africa, Iraq, and Lebanon. Matthew has also arranged for Andreas Fasoulides, living in Cyprus, to visit Pakistan to lay the ground work for future solar cooking training workshops, to enable them to supply 100,000 solar cookers currently on provisional order. He also wants to explore sales possibilities in Latin America. Matthew is close to releasing his new solar cooker design developed from the basic CooKit solar panel cooker. It will feature the ability to be able to be adjusted to suit sun orientation at any latitude location on the globe. He states that with the ability to better gather and focus the light, it can often be used without the need for a cooking bag, subject to weather conditions.
