Berkeley Air is conducting an impact evaluation study assessing changes to indoor air quality in low-income New York housing developments following the swap out of gas cooking appliances with electric appliances for a potential reduction in exposure to pollutants harmful to human health in the home.
Berkeley Air is leading a long-term source apportionment investigation in the Coachella Valley region in Southern California, characterizing contributions of pollutants that have the potential to negatively affect marginalized populations in the area through monitoring and analysis of ambient air. We are partnered with the Public Health Institute and Comité Civico del Valle.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is currently developing the WHO Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for Household Fuel Combustion.
As a leading field monitoring and evaluation (M&E) firm, Berkeley Air has participated in working groups to improve and standardize cookstove M&E.
Through funding from the Department of Energy Small Business Innovations Research, Berkeley Air is developing the “Platform for Integrated Cookstove Assessment” (PICA), a system for managing a suite of tools to collect stove performance data.
Berkeley Air is part of a research consortium funded by Vodafone Americas Foundation to develop a wireless Stove Use Monitoring System (SUMS).
The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves contracted Berkeley Air to create a database framework for a detailed inventory with the most relevant and accessible data for current stove performance.
