- November 2017: Amir Komarizade, working in Tehran, 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.
- April 30, 2014 Soheil Salimi, founder of Engineers Without Borders - Iran, conducted a solar cooking workshop at Hafez high school for girls. Other members of the Energy team included Razieh Amini nezhad, Fatemeh Rahimi, Niloufar Nekueian and Maryam Alipour.
- December 2013: Engineers Without Borders - Iran (EWB-Iran) participated in "Research Week" (Dec. 14 - 20, 2013) at Fasa University, highlighting the importance of solar cookers. In this seminar they informed students and professors about the different types of solar cookers and their efficiency. The team included Soheil Salimi (Founder and Lecturer), Razieh Amini nezhad (Food Science and Technology student), Niloufar Nekueian (Mathematics student), and Fatemeh Rahimi (Mechanical engineering student). They tested two types of solar cookers. The Suntastic Panel Cooker, which raised the internal temperature of an empty 4-liter black pot with a clear glass lid to 150° C (302° F) in about 30 minutes, and 3 liters of water heated from 26° C (79°F) to pasteurization point, 70°C (158°F), in about 50 minutes. They also tested the Dual-Setting Panel Cooker (DSPL), which has two different settings to better concentrate sunlight depending on the location of the sun in the sky.
