A new type of energy meter used in concentrating solar cookers on the Argentinean Altiplano is described. The meters are used to quantify CO2 savings and the user acceptance. The installed meters measure the amount of energy that enters the solar cooker within a certain angle of acceptance. Only the direct fraction of the incoming sun light is measured. The acceptance angle of the metering device is adapted to the type of solar cooker and size of the cooking pot. The use of the energy meters gives valuable data on the particular use of each solar cooker. - text taken from paper
