Today, Renetech and its local partner Ecobora has signed a contract with the Kenyan secondary school Gekomoni on an institutional solar heat powered stove system. Gekomoni has over 700 students and cooking is currently carried out using large quantities of firewood.

The project is partially funded by Tillväxtverket, the Swedish Agency for regional and economic growth.
