Scot Frank

Scot Frank is a co-inventor of SolSource, a portable solar concentrator that can be used for heating the home, cooking and electricity generation. It was created to withstand the high winds of remote mountainous regions. Scot Frank and fellow teammates of SolSource Tibet received an IDEAS Award from the MIT IDEAS Competition in 2008 for their innovative design of the solar concentrator. In 2009, Scot found himself on two IDEAS teams, HeatSource and Global Citizen Water Initiative, in which both teams received awards to continue their work and implementation of their ideas. Scot has also received two other Public Service Fellowships that helped to inform his project work in solar and heat energy and water quality issues.
