Title: Working with the World Bank and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to Promote Solar Cooking
Date: July 2006 (Presented at the Solar Cookers and Food Processing International Conference in Granada, Spain)
Abstract: Solar Household Energy Inc., an NGO based in Washington, D.C., has received financial support from the World Bank and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to disseminate solar cooking technology in rural Mexico. The World Bank-funded project, now completed, resulted in the training of hundreds of users and the sale and distribution of approximately 1,000 “HotPot” solar ovens, a new panel oven mass-produced in Mexico. The World Bank deemed the project a success, and has supported Solar Household Energy’s efforts to introduce solar cooking to other parts of the world. Such efforts are in progress. Solar Household Energy also received funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to analyze the beneficial health effects of solar cooking, as a follow-up to the World Bank project in Mexico. That project is ongoing.
Key words: Solar Household Energy Inc., HotPot, World Bank,Development Marketplace, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA
