About SCI's testing process
Responding to requests from cooks, agencies, and manufacturers, SCI created an objective, scientific process to measure solar cooker performance specifications: the Performance Evaluation Process (PEP). Solar cooks and purchasing agencies around the world need these valuable performance specifications to select the solar cooker that best fits their needs.
SCI's PEP is standards-based, replicable, and based on the internationally accepted ASAE S580.1 protocol for Testing and Reporting Solar Cooker Performance.
SCI's PEP is aligned with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) test protocols for clean cookstoves and clean cooking solutions.
SCI prioritizes PEP tested solar cookers.
SCI is a solar cooker testing center recognized by the
Clean Cooking Alliance.
Evaluations are arranged by SCI and conducted at Regional Testing and Knowledge Centers (RTKCs) in Nairobi, Kenya; Lalitpur, Nepal; California, USA; and New York, USA.
Official Results from the Solar Cookers International (SCI) Performance Evaluation Process (PEP)
Solar cookers are listed alphabetically below and color-coded by type: reflective-panel cookers (orange); box ovens (green); and evacuated tubes (purple).
SCI provides this information to benefit solar cooks and future solar cooks, agencies, and manufacturers; but this information is proprietary, so please do not publish it further without written permission from SCI.
