Lépine Competition

Alain Bivas won the gold medal at the Lépine competition ten years ago for creating a solar cooker. Since then, his invention, entirely
handmade in France, has travelled the world.
With no energy consumption and no risk of fire, the solar cooker created by Alain Bivas is an invention of the future. With its parabolic shape, it cooks food by reflecting the sun’s heat. Its inventor named it Sunplicity. Awarded a gold medal at the Lépine competition ten years ago, this solar oven is produced in the Tarn region of France, in a workshop that employs people with disabilities.

Ecology, but also taste.
“All reasons are good to solar cook, there is not only global warming, there is also smokless and offers economy, autonomy, independence. And then, there is the taste, it is good! “says Alain Bivas. His invention is becoming more and more successful in France, and even around the world : orders are coming in from Australia, Asia and the United States.
