Project at a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Energy access for the poor has multi-dimensional facets
  • For millions of households in developing countries, cooking is more than just a daily
    activity; it is associated with long hours spent collecting biomass. Smokey kitchens and the use of high intensity carbon fuels such as charcoal lead to dangerous emissions, which affect health and the environment
  • A variety of cookstove
    products were tried and tested through subsidised social delivery programmes, funded mostly by donors
  • The recent rise of social entrepreneurship in the energy sector is also responsible for the move towards an active market based model.
  • Cookstoves are adopted well by users if three principle dimensions are effectively addressed: motivation,
    affordability, and the level of engagement required.
  • In India, the market is dominated by two large players
  • Burning sustainable harvested wood now appears in a new light, as the easy, natural, affordable, and right thing to do, resulting in the modernization of a traditional energy form.
  • The mass production of high quality wood stoves
    manufactured and sold through a reliable supply chain developed for the ‘bottom of the pyramid’ lower end market is the need of the hour
