*'''February: 2013:''' With help from [[Fundación EcoAndina]] and [[WISIONS Initiative]], there has been a successful launch of solar powered food carts in operation in northern [[Argentina]]. During the celebrations of Carnival of Puna, which spans almost all of February, the intrepid promoters of the sun's energy walked a few new solar kiosks through the streets in Tilcara, Humahuaca, La Quiaca, Purmamarca and Uquía, tourist sites the northern province of Jujuy. Each [[Kiosco SOLAR]] consists of a wheeled trolley, waterproof roof, and a [[parabolic solar cooker]]. "People are incredulous and astonished when the cart is in operation," says Marta Rojas, responsible for opening a kiosk this month in Tilcara. As a safety concern, there has been a need to begin replace food carts, where typically food is cooked directly over gas canisters or open fires.
   
For cooking we had a specific look at biomass and biogas stoves, presenting projects examples from Laos, China, India and Kenya. Next to that the different solar appliances for food processing, like solar cookers, solar ovens and solar dryers have been analyzed in detail. The technology descriptions are illustrated with case studies, like solar cookers in Argentina and Burkina Faso, solar ovens applied in Cameroon and Gambia as well as solar dryers tested in Afghanistan.
