SolaCooka is an integrating solar cooker that can cook 24/7. It uses an 80W PV panel to heat a buried phase change material. Once charged the cooker can cook enough food for a family of 4. Designed primarily for the poorest of people living in slums, it costs less that the wood they burn that is causing millions to die each year from respiratory disease.

The Kangaroo bus is just a nice green answer not previously thought of, afaik, and it is free to any town that wants to build one.
