Our Experience And Interest In The Four PCIA Central Focus Areas

Social/Cultural barriers to using traditional fuels and stoves:

Solar power is a new technology to most in rural Peru. Providing quality products made locally and teaching people how to properly use them will help overcome the natural apprehension of something new.

Market development for improved cooking technologies:

We are planning a promotional campaign to show the products, how they are used, and how they can save families money on fuel and go into business selling the devices or raising chickens.

Technology standardization for cooking, heating and ventilation:

Designing in parts that are available in Peru at low cost.

Indoor air pollution exposure and health monitoring:

Eliminating indoor air pollution is a major goal.
