We all need energy. In the form of heat or electricity, energy is everywhere around us and we all need it. That being said, did someone ever ask us if we were okay with using polluting energy?
Did someone ever warn you that the pollution created by all our activities was directly participating to destroy life on Earth?
Probably not, and just like us, you started your life taking our energy sources for granted. Either you grew up in a big city or in a rural area, with cheap electricity or cheap LPG, with open wood fires or gas containers. Energy was what it was, right? And for the last decades, the fights between climate skeptics, lobbies, scientists, activists and politicians have sent us many confusing messages, haven’t they?
Now, considering the acceleration of tangible events related to climate change everywhere, let’s face the situation: it is a sure fact that global warming and its terrible side effects are caused by human activities based on excessive fossil fuels use (sources). So, what can we do to take back our fate?
We take back control of our relationship with our energy source.
When it comes to heat production at a small scale, no electricity is required and this is what Lytefire gives you: free and clean solar heat for your home, your village, your school or your business.
No need to wait for the next huge clean energy plan, nor the next crisis. You can start now and adapt courageously to a changing world.

Environmental protection and the common good
Here, we believe that the best CO2 is the one that is not emitted. That is why each Lytefire 5 oven installed and used on a regular basis in a sunny country can protect 60㎡ of forests and avoid 5 tons of carbon emissions every year.
We believe small is beautiful.
We believe in simple, local and efficient technologies that support life to reinforce the local economy everywhere and make it as much as possible powered by clean energy. It will require us to reorganize a few things in the economy, in the work organization, yes. But isn’t it better to act and adjust now rather than suffer later?
We believe people can bring changes!
We believe we will make history together.

Energy + Education = Knowledge and Empowerment
Because no-one can solve the social and climate crises alone, we support strongly in global collaboration. That is why our model includes everyone from the DIYer ready to build in their backyard, to the NGO creating jobs and empowering women and refugees, to the entrepreneurs running bakeries, to the producers making Lytefire. Everyone needs to be involved in the energy transition to a more just and equitable world.
Struggle with energy is also one of the roots of poverty and in sunny countries, there are so many people with great ideas and skills that are prevented from thriving because of poverty. Alleviating the burden to them is the core motivation of the founders but no one individual can alleviate poverty - it’s far too complex and widespread. However, when we combine each of our individual efforts, we can make a difference. By combining simple and robust solar concentrators with education, together with our humanitarian clients and partners, we reach the most vulnerable and break the poverty circle to create more empowerment.
