Maximizing Impact through Knowledge and Entrepreneurship

Empowering entrepreneurs with Lytefire

The Lytefire 5 units are perfect for entrepreneurs to roast, bake, cook and do other value-adding processes that genrate income and reduce CO2.

Working in the field we encounter entreprenurs that need your help to get started. Help us crowdfund to enable these entrepreneurs transition to solar immediately.

Solar Bakery in Rural Burkina Faso

Support a rural bakery switching from daily firewood burning to clean solar energy.

Freeing the knowledge on how to build the powerful Lytefire 4 solar concentrator!

After developing and proving our technology on 4 continets with real entrepreneurs we are releasing for free the entire knowledge on how to build the Lytefire 4!

We believe in the power of knowledge, and the drive of entrepreneurs around the world. To reduce climate change we need millions of entrepreneurs to go solar. By releaseing for free our technology, we enable entrepreneurs to build, go solar, save money and stop burning fossil fuels and trees.

To keep going we are looking for sponsors to create the next construction guides for the solar oven, roaster, dehydrator, pyrolysis units and beyond! Learn more about guide sponsorship here.

The Lytefire 4 Construction Guide

Sponsor the Construction Guide

To maximize impact, we plan to release all our designs for free, one by one,
so anyone can build them locally.

We envision millions of local artisans around the world all building these devices, working out tricks to do it cheaper in their context, and disrupting the energy market, crashing the price and demand of coal, charcoal and gas as these fossil and biomass fuels are no longer able to compete against free solar fuel.

We’ve launched this campaign with the release of our first guide, the Lytefire 4 Stovetop. We expect this guide to eventually be downloaded and shared millions of times.

Sponsorship is a way to get your business or personal message out there while supporting more of this work. Ovens, Roasters, Dehydrators, Pyrolysis, Water Purifiers, Desalinators, Steam Engines, Recyclers - with your support we’ll be able to move forward and continue developing and releasing more and more of these construction guides!

You sponsor only what you can already see and what is already released (of course, we then update the downloadable guide with your message or logo), there are no promises we can’t keep and you gain immediate visibility.

About

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

 

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 offering our products on pre-order and we are releasing open source construction guides to support the global adoption of our technology.

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