- NEW: June 2016: Prof. Rodrigo Carpio reports that Fundación Inti Uma Ecuador continues to organize solar cooking workshops for community groups, schools, and universities. They began in earnest in 1990 and are going strong. He feels because the government of Ecuador subsidizes traditional fuels, it makes it more difficult to make the case for solar cooking, but he is seeing a shift in this thinking of "living behind reality". The April 2016 earthquake in Pederanales, Ecuador brought tragedy, but it also showed how off-grid technologies can play a role in meeting the future energy needs of the country.
