Solar Fire is now spreading through a podcast

Posted 15 octobre 2021 by Eva Wissenz.

We are so happy to start a series of podcast. We are on journey to share more and more about our vision and our energy, everything that is behind the scene of Solar Fire. From solving energy poverty to personal empowerment, from gender equality in the team to specific feminin challenges in the renewable energy field, from a backyard in Canada to several countries in Africa.

The first three episodes are :

1. Solving energy poverty
Our Chief Operations Officer, Lorin Symington, shares how his family came up with the idea of this solar concentrator, how he gets to know the cultures in the different countries he visits and what motivates him. It was recorded between Burkina-Faso and Finland at the end of 2020.

2. Solar Fire Women : A conversation
Finally, Solar Fire reached gender equality ! For many years, Solar Fire was a team of six persons with only one woman. Nothing in her previous life prepared her to be one of the co-founders of a tech project meant to solve energy poverty. In this second episode, the 7 women working now for Solar Fire or who are promoting the Lytefire tech are sharing their experience, challenges and hopes from Finland, Switzerland, Kenya and France.

3. Can we accelerate the transformation of society by accelerating our own change ?
Our CEO, Urs Riggenbach, shares about the change dynamics and whether we are ready or not for climate change, developing an interesting and deep perspective based on his decade of work serving Solar Fire with the purpose of developing an energy tool that is truly empowering people. As he says, “the growth of an organization literally is the growth of the individuals within the organization.”

Listen here. We hope you’ll like it !
