Lytefire - Fire from Sunlight

Make clean energy affordable for all with solar thermal concentration.
For a fair and liveable future.

 

 

 

We are on a journey to make concentrated solar energy the new normal.

Join us to be a dynamic part of a sustainable and decentralized future, and make a long lasting impact with us.

It’s as simple as that: spreading Lytefire units built locally with local materials together with powerful educational material can empower millions and have an amazing impact. Start now.

In 2019, IPCC scientists stated that we have 12 years to miminize climate change caused by humans activities.
We have to hurry. That’s the reason of this campaign. We are in a major CRISIS but now entrepreneurs have a powerful energy to reshape society.

Order your Lytefire 5

For your business or your backyard, Lytefire 5 is availabe in 3 different flavours.

Lytefire 5 Oven

Bake at the same temperatures, speed and quantity of a commercial oven!

  • Can bake up to 40 kilograms of bread per day
  • Perfect for cakes, cookies, scones
  • Up to 300°C baking temperature
  • Even heat distribution for high quality bakes
  • Immune to blackouts and brownouts
  • No fuel costs

Lytefire 5 Roaster

Because there is no actual fire, there are no hot spots that char the nuts! There are no combustion residues either, just pure roasted flavour.

  • Can roast Peanut, Coffee, Cocoa / Cacao, Cashew and more.
  • No more burnt taste
  • Regulated temperature
  • Roasts up to 50kg per day of peanuts
  • No fuel costs

The dedicated roaster has a higher roasting capacity than the multi, so it is worthwhile if there are no baking needs.

Lytefire Multi

The Lytefire Multi is the best options for entrepreneurs and enthusiasts who want mainly to bake, but also want to pop in the roaster drum and roast some tasty roastables.

  • Get the best of both functions: Roaster & Oven
  • Bakes up to 35 kilograms of bread per day
  • Roasts up to 35 kilograms of peanuts per day
  • Roasts gently and evenly (no more scorching)

We are on a mission to solve climate change and energy poverty
while accelerating the adoption of clean and decentralized energy for all.

 

We are a Finnish social and impact family company based in Finland. Our international and passionate team is working in the field in 10+ countries since a decade to refine a powerful and locally built solar thermal device.

Lytefire is an initiative to maximize the impact of solar thermal energy. It was initiated by the GoSol Team in 2020, after fully developing and piloting our solar technology on 4 continents. With Lytefire, we are now offering our products on pre-order and we are releasing construction guides and tutorials to support the global adoption of our technology.

Lytefire and GoSol are run by Solar Fire Concentration Oy, a Finnish social and impact company created in 2012 in Tampere, Finland.
