Abstract

In many developing countries people rely on firewood as a primary energy source which has negative health and environmental consequences. Solar cooking offers a solution to overcome those problems. The promotion of solar cookers has become very popular over the years and a wide range of organizations promote different types of solar cookers around the world. However, it is not clear how many of those cooking systems are still in use. The literature on solar cookers is very limited and has focused mainly on household solar cookers, while solar cookers for institutional applications have been ignored. This study contributes carried by comparing application levels type of solar cooker. This paper presents a short review on different types of solar cookers. Several attempts have been made to introduce solar cookers in different countries and have achieved asymmetrical successes. There are still critical issues so far to be resolved in order to make the technology acceptable for wider propagation. They include getting the most appropriate types of solar cookers for specific locations, optimum size/capacity, types of materials to be used, optimal design and affordable cost. In an attempt to resolve these issues, a comprehensive study involving theoretical review, development work, experimental testing and evaluation of solar cookers is carried.
