Thematic Fiche no. 4 – Improved Stoves as a Means to Increase Efficient Use of Energy

In order to meet the demands for energy in today’s world, all aspects of the supply chain must be addressed. This includes decreasing demand through more efficient use of energy resources, specifically wood fuel and charcoal. As one of the main uses of these fuels is for cooking, significant innovations have taken place in stove technologies. This thematic fiche explores the technologies most widely used, summarises the learnings from the 8 improved stove projects funded by the ACP-EU Energy Facility, and describes innovative trends which can shape future improved stove project design.
