The world’s biggest solar kitchen in Mount Abu, Rajasthan, India runs entirely on huge solar reflectors. In joint efforts of Brahma Kumaris India and Solare-Bruecke, Germany, steam from solar reflectors were created to cook vegetables and rice for up to 18,000 people.
Steam is produced and collected by seizing the heat from the sun, which can reach temperatures of 650 degrees C at the reflector’s focal point. The steam fuels gigantic industrial pots of 200 and 400 litres where the food is cooked.
At 1,300 meters above sea level, the system is setup at the Academy for a Better World and can produce up to 38,500 meals per day when the sun is at full glow.
