Shirin Gadhia was a Malaysian of Indian origin settled in India. She did her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Malaysia and Ph.D. in Germany in Genetic Engineering. On her return to India realizing that developing countries need appropriate technology for sustainable development, she and her husband, Deepak Gadhia, formed an NGO, Eco Center ICNEER. To become economically independent they set up a company, Gadhia Solar which manufactures and sells solar cookers to support the environmental awareness and ecological activities of ICNEER.

News and recent developments

  • August 2006: Deepak and Shirin Gadhia, of Gadhia Solar Energy Systems, were awarded the "Business Leadership Award 2005 for Solar Thermal" at the annual International Congress on Renewable Energy (ICORE) in Hyderabad last February. The award was received from the Solar Energy Society of India (SESI), a member of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). "Like all pioneering work, initially the path had been a slow, up-hill process," said the Gadhias. "But now, due to ever increasing energy costs and environmental catastrophes like global warming, it makes mankind realize that clean, renewable, sustainable technologies are the best possible option." Upon winning the award, the Gadhias acknowledged Dr. Dieter Seifert and Wolfgang Scheffler, whose solar concentrator cooking technologies are promoted by Gadhia Solar.
