Since early in the 1960s, a number of African countries have been conducting research aimed at the use of solar energy. Experimental centers have made it possible to develop prototypes of solar apparatus, such as water heaters, dryers, stills, cookers, refrigeration facilities and low power solar engines for supplying water to grasslands and villages- Some of the techniques developed have already made it possible to start popularizing their use, and it is now possible to bring them to the semi-industrial or industrial stage.
