The physicist Wolfgang Scheffler developed the 'flexible, shape-variable parabolic mirror with a fixed focal point', in short: the Scheffler mirror, a simple yet sophisticated method of cooking, frying and baking highly efficiently with sunlight. Today, almost a thousand systems are installed in 21 countries. His partner Heike Hoedt is responsible for the global transfer of knowledge.
