Solar electric cooking in Africa: Where will the transition happen first? – ScienceDirect

The speed and degree to which this concept is taken up is expected to vary widely across this culturally and physically diverse continent, however its potential impact is considerable. eCook systems could play a major role in meeting SDG 7; largely by facilitating access to affordable, reliable, sustainable modern energy for all in relation to cooking.
