We are excited to extend our invites for two events that will happen in Switzerland this September.

Since a few days we have an additional Team Member with us here in Solothurn, Switzerland, and we’re busy completing a SOL5 solar concentrator .

After recent projects started up in East Africa, the Philippines and Brazil, we now also want to start in Switzerland roasting, drying, cooking and baking with direct solar energy!

Join us:

  • Saturday, 14. September for a live demo event at the Rosegghof Farm, starting at 14:00.
  • Tuesday, 24. September we are holding an evening event in the city of Solothurn, presenting on how direct solar energy can pave the way into a climate neutral future. With us will be Beto Borges of Forest Trends to present our work in the Amazon, as well as Lorin Symington from our team sharing on his experience in the Philippines and East Africa.

We look forward to starting many good discussions at our events. The events will be partly German, partly English. Please see the individual event infos below.
