Champaign , USA

Add to:

The "Cooking with Stored Solar Energy in C-U" event will take place in Champaign on Dec. 2, 2016, as part of the MSTE Friday Lunch Series.

Speaker Information:

Samantha Lindgren

The stored solar thermal energy research group in the College of Engineering and at the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) has developed a portable cookstove that stores solar energy. This stove was designed for the energy impoverished areas across the globe, and as a solution to the Global Cooking Problem. Cooking results and lessons learned from our initial test sites in the Navajo Nation, Les Cayes, Haiti, and in kitchens across Champaign-Urbana will be discussed.


Free and open to the public.
