Solar Energy-cooking

Problem Statement

Green Energy Mali is the first start up who have a patented Solar induction cooktop powered
by 12V DC Power Station and solar panel , that can provide a sustainable and affordable
cooking solution, lighting, and mobile charging to communities in Sahel country Mali, it can
cook food using clean energy, gives lighting and charging for mobile devices . The market fit
for this solution in Mali is significant, as many communities still rely on traditional fuels , more
than 95% of Malian population uses gas , kerosene , wood charcoal for cooking and have
limited access to reliable electricity. The end-user demographic our solar induction cooktop
powered by Power Station in Mali includes low-income households, small businesses, and
schools. To scale up the deployment of this solution in Mali, we partnerships with
organizations ,government agencies and develop a distribution network to reach underserved
communities, and offer financing options Pay-Us-You-GO to make the solutions

Which do you think are the innovative factors of your idea?

The unique value proposition of solar energy efficiency cooking , the induction cooktop
powered by a 12V DC power station and gives light, charging mobile for off-grid homes in
Sahel countries lies in the ability to provide clean and sustainable energy for cooking and
household electricity needs. Mali one of the sahel countries are located in a region with high
levels of sunshine and limited access to reliable electricity, particularly in rural areas. This
makes solar energy an attractive and practical solution for meeting the energy needs of the
communities. The use of solar energy efficiency for cooking and household electricity needs
can offer several benefits. Cost savings , the solar energy is a free and renewable resource,
the initial investment in the solar induction cooktop fabrication, solar power station is made, the
ongoing cost of energy is negligible. Reduced carbon footprint: Solar energy does not produce
greenhouse gas emissions or contribute to climate change.

Which benefits would your idea bring to the industry?

Solar Energy-cooking connected to a 12V power station brings multiple benefits to the industry, including energy access, sustainability, versatility, economic empowerment, environmental impact, health and safety improvements, and scalability. It addresses critical energy and cooking challenges while fostering socio-economic development and contributing to a more sustainable future.
Energy Access: The combined solution enables communities in remote areas to access reliable and clean energy for cooking, lighting, and charging their mobile devices. It bridges the energy gap and improves the quality of life for individuals who have limited or no access to traditional energy sources.
Sustainable Cooking: By integrating solar energy into the cooking process, the solution reduces the dependence on traditional cooking fuels like wood or charcoal. This helps mitigate deforestation, lowers carbon emissions, and improves air quality by eliminating smoke and indoor pollutants associated.

To which challenges does your idea provide a solution to?

Limited Access to Grid Electricity: Many households in Africa, especially in rural and remote areas, have limited or no access to grid electricity. Solar induction cooktops powered by 12V solar power stations offer a clean and reliable cooking solution independent of grid infrastructure, ensuring access to cooking energy.
Dependence on Traditional Fuels: Traditional cooking methods such as wood, charcoal, and kerosene are commonly used in Africa. These fuels contribute to deforestation, indoor air pollution, and health issues. Solar induction cooktops eliminate the need for traditional fuels, providing a sustainable and clean alternative for cooking.
Solar induction cooktops powered by 12V solar power stations address these challenges by offering a clean, reliable, cost-effective, and sustainable cooking solution to households in Africa. They improve health outcomes, reduce environmental impact, enhance household safety, and empower communities with access to clean energy for cooking.
