Amir Komarizade

Amir Komarizade lives in Tehran, Iran, and has been designing and building a variety of solar cookers since 2007. They include the Solar Picnic, solar cooker mounting approaches, and solar PV thermal cooking.


  • November 2017: Amir has been testing a solar cooker mounting system, similar to the gimbal mounts used on Donsonian style telescopes, and using PV power to generate enough energy to boil water in a small vessel.
  • September 2017: Amir hopes to create an "Energy Café" at the institute where he works where food would be cooked in solar cookers.

  • December 2015: Amir reports that he taught solar cooking at the Nioofar Solar House, and has now returned to lab management at Sharif University.
