The Solar Cooker Application Group, headed by Professor Herliyani Suharta, was established in 1993, after the Earth Day Summit in 1992, in order to pursue a grant for a solar cooking research project in Indonesia. The Group worked with the Center for Field Research (Massachusetts, USA) from 1994-1998 and continued its own research until 2007, when funding ran out. Currently, the Solar Cooker Application Group is seeking funding to continue its work in developing ecologically-friendly technology and in providing education in the use of green technologies for cooking.
