This wiki-based site, which allows Network participants to edit articles, provides a platform for members to share information and to collaborate on projects and research. Solar cooking is an important part of [[Integrated Cooking]], which also includes the use of [[fuel-efficient woodstove]]s and [[heat-retention cooker]]s. If you are a solar cooking promoter, designer, or manufacturer, and you would like '''to be included in the Network''', fill out this [http://solarcooking.org/join/joinSCInet.htm online form].

*'''Solar cooking receives a new platform to speak from''' - The second edition of Sun Focus, a quarterly magazine on concentrated solar heat has just been released. The new publication from [[India]] was founded by Dr Farooq Addullah. Dr Abdullah said that the magazine will focus on off-grid applications of concentrated solar technologies (CSTs) for the purpose of saving fuel oil, firewood, and LPG in industrial and commercial establishments using heat between 80 °C and 250 °C. Solar cooking plays a major role in the content. This latest edition's cover article is devoted to the latest developments of the [[Scheffler Community Kitchen]], written by noted solar cooking designer and advocate for solar cooking taught in public schools, [[Ajay Chandak]]. Read his article on page 11. [https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3LcTeALQ3GJNXlDR01EMjRWcEk/edit?pli=1 Scheffler Solar Concentrators in India] - ''Sun Focus''

*'''Only solar cooking makes something like this possible''' - In 2009 several hundred women from [[Chad|Darfur refugee camps]] gathered together, each carrying a pot of raw food and a folded 12" x 12" cardboard and aluminum foil [[CooKit]]. They were preparing a farewell dinner for an international team that had been evaluating their solar cooker project. The women opened their CooKits and left their pots of food to cook unattended for 90 minutes while they sat in the shade. The result was a banquet for hundreds of people. If each of these woman had been required to haul a fuel-efficient stove and a bundle of wood to this location along with her pot of food, she would have had to stay out in the sun, along with the other women, to tend her fire through the cooking process. Imagine hundreds of fires burning in the desert sun to cook what the ladies in this photo cooked with no fuel and no fire at all.
