Countries with the greatest solar cooking potential

Solar Cookers International has compiled a list of twenty countries with the highest potential for solar cooking. Criteria for this ranking include annual average sunlight, cooking fuel scarcity and population size. Of the estimated 500 million people who have abundant sunshine and suffer from fuel scarcity, 85% of them live in just 10 countries.

Latitudes between the equator and 40º are usually best, though solar cooking at high latitudes is possible, even in the winter. The darker regions on the following map tend to have longer cooking seasons.
