Solar Cookers International (SCI) is actively advancing the spread of solar cooking around the globe.  The increasing interest in solar cooking makes it necessary for organizations and decision makers to know what solar cooker model will best fit their needs.  Because of you, SCI can now answer this question with the Solar Cooker Performance Evaluation Process (PEP) and give you and other organizations the information necessary for success.   

SCI’s PEP test allows manufacturers and consumers to understand the cooking power of solar cookers without brand bias and to develop a baseline for comparison.  PEP testing demonstrates to solar cooker users and investors the power, in watts, they can expect from a specific model of solar cooker.  You can trust the results because the PEP test is based on an internationally accepted protocol for testing and reporting solar cooker performance.   

SCI is excited to announce that we have recently added a new PEP testing center in Nairobi, Kenya.  We also have centers in Lalitpur, Nepal; New York, USA; and California, USA.  Having global locations for our PEP testing centers is important to advancing the adoption of solar cooking worldwide.  Local testing of solar cookers supports the regional economy, job growth and builds capacity of the solar cooking sector.   

With you and SCI, organizations and users will get the best, unbiased, scientific information, leading to the spread of solar cooking success, knowledge, and sustainability around the world.  If you’re interested in learning more or want to see if your favorite solar cooker has been Performance Evaluation Process tested yet, check out our Research page, here: https://www.solarcookers.org/work/research.   

Solar Cookers International leads with you.  Thank you.
