  25 millions cancer cases are predicted in 2035, 65-70% will occur in low and middle income countries (LMICs). The current generation of linear accelerators in use in upper-income countries often do not function well in the adverse conditions in LMICs as regular interruptions to energy supply, lack of air temperature control in buildings and weak health systems between others. A new generation of environmental friendly radiotherapy accelerator that consumes little power on standby and has reduction heat production, low instantaneous power demand and local power storage would reduce reliance on the electricity grid and is in development. The talk will describe the effort made in this sense.
