The Border Green Energy Team (BGET) has been working along the Thailand/Burma border since 2005 with the mission to implement renewable energy and sustainable technologies and also demonstrate how these technologies are integral and economically viable aspects of improving livelihoods.
Technologies utilized by BGET have included solar electricity, micro-hydro, bio-digesters, solar cooking, water pumping, and water purification methods. These solutions have been provided to beneficiaries in ethnic Karen villages, refugee camps, Burmese migrant schools, children's homes, medical clinics, and for other emergency relief organizations working along both sides of the Thailand/Burma border.

Solar cooking has played a role in helping refugees learn new trades and utilize renewable technologies. BGET has sponsored solar cooker construction workshops in the past.
