International Solar Energy Society
The implementation of technologies for food processing and conservation through solar energy can help to reduce poverty, improve local economic opportunities and health conditions, and reduce environmental damage. In particular in those countries with a high solar radiation potential proper solar technologies can assist sustainable development in small rural communities. However, the full potential still needs to be explored. In this project the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) intends to establish a global network of interested parties (NGO’s, politicians, farmers, and experts), that will aim to gather, further develop and promote efficient methods of solar food processing and conservation.
