  • April 25-26, 2015: (Altötting) - 21. Internationale Solarkocherkonferenz, EG-Solar e.V., Altötting, Deutschland, in der Staatlichen Berufsschule. Konferenzsprache: deutsch. Weitere Informationen...


  • Sunday, March 1, 2015 (Deadline for comments): India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) is inviting comments on its Draft Solar Policy. The ten-page document, available here, outlines some of the government department’s thinking. “The Nodal Agency shall take necessary action to proliferate its application in feasible sectors including residential (solar water heaters, solar cookers, indoor air heating etc.), commercial & industrial sector (solar cooling, solar air dryers, large scale solar water heaters, large scale solar cooking utilizing solar concentrator technology, process heating etc.).” Read more...
  • April 24 - 26, 2015: (Lucknow) The North India Solar Summit (NISS) is a major exhibition and conference for the solar industry within India. This will be the second edition of this conference. The conference appears primarily directed at the PV industry, but promoters of solar thermal technologies are also encouraged to exhibit. However, suggested solar thermal applications emphasize building technology. More information...


  • April 26-28, 2015: (Petra) Jordan will be hosting their first solar cooking forum and competition in cooperation with the Arabian Green energy company in Petra, Jordan. Cash prizes will be awarded for best solar cooker design, best research in solar cooking, and best cultural interaction.

  • Saturday, July 18, 2015: (Sacramento) The 2nd annual Sacramento Solar Cooking Festival will be held once again in William Land Park from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Solar chefs interested in cooking at the festival are required to pre-register, which will begin in May, 2015. Attend mini solar-cooking classes, learn how solar cooking helps families around the world, and learn how to make a solar cooker yourself. Video of the 2014 festival can be seen at: Sacramento Solar Cooking Festival 2014


  • March 28-29, 2015: (New Haven) - The twelfth annual Global Health & Innovation Conference will be held at Yale University. The conference convenes 2,200 leaders, changemakers, students, and professionals from all fields of global health, international development, and social entrepreneurship. With attendance from members of many fields of interest, this may be a good opportunity to network solar cooking technology. Unfortunately, by the time we received invitation information, the deadline had passed for abstract submittals. More information...



  • April 2015: (Dodgeville) An exhibition of Solar Energy Architectonics by Joel Goodman is scheduled at the Iowa County Courthouse (both floor levels), in Dodgeville, Wisconsin, USA for the month of April. Drawings and model photographs will be presented including: the BIETR (building interior evacuated tubes and reflectors) project, building integrated nonimaging reflector troughs (interior and exterior), thru-wall solar cookers, heliostats (2-axis tracking and 1-axis tracking linear Fresnel systems), spherical reflector segment bowls, and thermal storage.
