SolBook: Preparing the Next Generation
of Solar Builders and Entrepreneurs

Posted Tuesday 2 August 2016 by Urs Riggenbach.

The SolBook is a resource for integrating GoSol.org’s empowering knowledge into school’s curricula. It will contain lessons on the physics, ecology, economics and entrepreneurial aspects of thermal solar energy. This book will take on the energy problem of today and makes it approachable for teachers and educational institutions that want to empower their students.

Breakthrough in Kenya with Weconomy / World Vision: GoSol's solar concentrators save money, time and energy.

What is the SolBook?

We want to create an educational textbook containing all the information needed for anyone to start using the power of the sun to save money, reduce pollution and to create a more sustainable planet.

The SolBook, available as Ebook, Paperback and Hardcover for pre-order is our approach for a rapid and massive distribution of knowledge on solar entrepreneurship. People who pre-order their SolBook help funding the creation of this book. The raised funds go directly into the production of the books as well as help fund our ongoing project in Kenya. Find out more on the SolBook page.

Education to solar energy is key

Education has the potential to equip the young generation with the vital tools they’ll need to fix the planet. At GoSol.org we are already sharing our DIY construction guides for 2 solar concentrators though membership.

Our partnership with Weconomy and World Vision allows us to potentially spread our knowledge in the over 90 countries where they work. We are getting many requests from educational institutions that want to teach solar. Now is the time to respond and create the educational material needed to empower the next generation of solar entrepreneurs. And we want to do this with you.

Why Now?

After reaching the technological breakthrough in baking, roasting and cooking, GoSol’s natural next step is to work with educational institutions to build up the capacity globally for solar entrepreneurship.

Even though there are many great tools out there for humanity to mitigate the globe’s ever increasing problems, it is still possible for young adults to grow up in today’s world not learning about centralized energy and how it’s affecting our planet.

Now enters the SolBook, an educational textbook containing all the information needed for anyone to start using the power of the sun to save money, reduce pollution and to create a more sustainable planet.

“Once the technological breakthrough is achieved, the real work only begins: the work of raising awareness and integrating an innovation into today’s society.”

Urs Riggenbach, Project Manager at GoSol.org
