Championing Solar Electric Cooking and Beyond

This concept note argues that research should be conducted now, with the intention of an affordable solar electric cooking product to be rolled out at scale in Africa by 2020.

The purpose of this note is to stimulate debate among actors working in policy and practice in sustainable energy. It draws attention to the 3 Billion people who continue to use solid fuel (biomass, coal or dung) for their cooking needs, and suggests that this on-going need for clean energy might now be filled by a solar electric system. It argues that the price of solar panels, batteries and simple electric hob equipment has come down significantly over the last 18 months, and a tipping point has been reached.
