The objective of Kera Energy is to help the development of solar cooking and support the success of its ownership in Africa. This is a job that requires significant partnerships with local stakeholders in raising awareness, support, and manufacturing.

Kera Energy belives that solar cookers should be tailored to the energy needs of users, but also their culinary habits. To accomplish this, it's necessary to identify the needs, customs, and traditions of the areas where solar cookers are being deployed. Each situation requires a different approach depending on the issues and energy alternatives available on site.
