About the publication

This working paper details the results of a feasibility study investigating the potential of DC solar-powered cooking with food vendors in Mwanza Region, Tanzania. It was the product of a three-month work placement, sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), that enabled Anthony Perrett from Loughborough University’s Geography Department to lead a research project on behalf of Africa Power Ltd. Three prototypes of DC solar-powered stoves were supplied by KuyereOrg, a Malawian social enterprise specialising in domestic solar electric systems: a water heater (rice/bean cooker), pressure cooker and wok.
