Approximately 3 billion people globally rely on solid fuels to meet their household energy needs. Solid fuels paired with inefficient cookstoves result in household air pollution, the second leading risk of ill health in developing countries. Our vision is the widespread adoption of cleaner and more efficient household energy solutions in developing countries for global health and climate benefits.
