Promotion of solar powered kitchens (Botswana)


Titre : Promotion of solar powered kitchens (Botswana)

Pays : Botswana

Numéro projet : BOT/95/G52/004

Domaine : Multifocal Area

Durée : 12/1997 — 12/1999

Bénéficiaire : Rural Industries Innovation Centre

Rural Industries Innovation Centre (RIIC) is the national hardware centre for research and development for appropriate technology ; notably promoting use of renewable energy to improve the lives of Batswana, particularly the rural population.
The Solar Kitchen for Canteens was developed by Mr. Wolfang Scheffler who is a member of the Swiss ULOG working group. Some units have been installed in East Africa and there are plans to build some in Namibia. The project utilises light from the sun by concentrating the rays using a parabolic mirror to heat a large pot.
RIIC would like to adapt and support the Solar Kitchen Project in Botswana. The project will target schools, canteens, prisons, hospitals and related institutions. A total of six units are planned. Three units shall be constructed around Kanye village while the other three units will be constructed in Kgalagadi, Kgatleng and Central districts.
This project has a potential to reduce pressures on the global environment in the following ; * reducing greenhouse gas emissions * protecting biodiversity saving fuelwood *reducing ozone layer depletion
