From left to right Gatien, Guillaume, Gilles, the 3G of solar cooking.
We are a young start-up but with a long history.
In a nutshell, we start from scratch but with a huge, huge « motivation »!
From the young camper who starts his first wood fire with a solar lighter, to the industrial which operates solar thermal megawatts, by way of the foodie who do solar cooking, the principle is simple:
The sunrays are reflected on a mirror surface in order to be concentrated and focused on a precise point, enabling to heat or ignite.
If the principle is old like the world, or at least old as Archimedes, the technology is innovative and is at the heart of the activity.
La version "cool" - Solar-Brother
We are a young start-up but with a long history. We have been through many slog.
When he was 30 years old, Gilles was looking for a purpose in his work and to be in accord with his humanistic values.
He went to Tombouctou to find inspiration. From this meeting with Africa, he came back with the willingness of developping thermal solar and especially the solar cooking to ease life in Africa, and in particular solar cooking to make life easier for people and to fight lung problems directly related to wood burning in confined spaces, against deforestation and soil erosion. Returning from his end of the world, Gilles brings back all the Sun "Solar Brother" needed in his suitcases.
Gilles Gallo is an old hand in solar cooking.
Since 12 years, Gilles has accumulated a substantial field experience. Today he is well-known as a key actor in the concentrated solar technology in Europe.
Relentless, he started on the street market in Toulon selling solar lighters (the ancestor of the Suncase).
Gilles has rapidly become an inventor and a conceptor of solutions.
In 2011 he buys a factory in Meaux to produce his own mirror, the engine in all our conceptions, the S-Reflect mirror, used today by many popes of the solar cooking worldwide.
Corinne, the creator who is full of ideas. Specialized in brand identity, Corinne is behind all the graphic creations as well as the patent of the Suncase.
Gatien, an engineer, had already joined Gilles in 2011. He manages the entire Research & Development and Supply. He accompanied the CEA in tests of solar power stations based on our technology.
2 months ago we won 3 prices at the
We just won the
contest of Nature & Découvertes:
and we also started a new brand "Solar-Brother" which is more in accordance with our principles, we want to tell everybody that the "Solar energy works" with it!
Don't hesitate to spread the word: The solar energy works!
With its whole range of products and its strategy in 3 axes, Solar Brother is now developing the knowledge and use of concentrated solar in the world in order to facilitate its access and make it one of the energies of the 3rd millennium.
From the young boy who lights his first campfire, to the Africans who build their own solar ovens in specialized workshops, by way of the fine gourmets who use our barbecues.
1. Development of a solar range of demonstration and experimentation products of concentrated solar energy.
2. The design and sale of solar mirror for do-it-yourselfers and Africa.
We sell OUR solar mirrors in small quantities, for DIY customers who wish to create their own designs (free plans are available on our website) and in larger quantities for associations in Africa who wish to carry out solar cooking workshops (we help organize and finance these workshops)
We currently have three tests underway in Madagascar, Togo and Senegal.
3. Our future (still secret defense)
It's time to put Sun in your plates. And we'll do it!
Our products are innovative, powerful but still largely unknown.
So we would most delighted if you could share the solar experience with YOUR friends, YOUR community or YOUR readers.
We are a french compagny, innovative, pioneer. We invent and design products. We also sell those of others that are beautiful, efficient as well as effective.
Buying from us can clearly help us going further, designing new products... Of the four partners, only Gilles is paid.
Gilles, Corinne, Guillaume, Cécile, Gatien, Guillaume and Charles & Marie : Solar Brother !
The sunniest start-up in Paris.
Did you know? 8 billion disposable lighters are consumed PER YEAR.
