Berkeley Air Monitoring Group and the United States Environmental Protection Agency in association with Winrock International conducted Kitchen Performance Test (KPT) Workshops and field campaigns in Uganda (Kampala) in July/August 2012, Benin (Cotonou) in July 2013, and India (Gujarat) in August 2013. The four to five day workshops covered motivation, theory, and execution of field-based stove testing, focusing on KPTs. The workshop was followed by a KPT and emissions field study. The KPTs assessed fuel consumption by cross-sectional design in Uganda and Benin and before-and-after design in India. The emissions study collected field data on CO2, CO, PM2.5, CH4, BC, and OC.
