Kenya: Monitoring for Carbon Finance

Berkeley Air Monitoring Group, in collaboration with Green Futures (Nairobi, Kenya), performed several field-based assessments to determine the effect of improved cookstoves on fuel consumption in households in Nairobi, Meru, and Marsabit in Kenya. Fuel savings were measured for the Envirofit G3300 and Jiko Poa improved wood cookstoves distributed by the Paradigm Project through their local partners, including Food for the Hungry (FHI), Explore Kenya, and The International Small Group and Tree Planting Program (TIST).

Kitchen Performance Tests (KPTs) were performed by the field teams in 40 households in Nairobi, 80 households in Meru, and 80 households in Marsabit (200 total). One hundred tests were performed with the Envirofit G3300 stove and 100 with the Jiko Poa stove.
