Berkeley Air is part of a consortium for the Quality Assurance and Technical Support (QA/TS) pillar of the African Clean Cooking Energy Solutions (ACCES) initiative, which is being implemented by the Africa Energy Group (AFTEG) of the the World Bank. The consortium’s aim is to provide a solid technical foundation on clean cooking technologies that provide real benefits to health and climate.
Berkeley Air has been contracted to provide training and technical support to CIRCODU on field emissions testing as part of The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstove’s initiative for Enhancing Capacity of Regional Testing and Knowledge Centers.
Berkeley Air collected field data and built local capacity for a study titled Evaluation Of Acceptability And Sustainability Of Improved Stoves And Their Impact On Indoor Air Quality And Child Health In Rural Western Kenya, led by investigators from CDC and WHO.
Under the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC), Berkeley Air began conducting the Cookstove Emissions Performance Survey: Assessments of Promising Technologies in Priority Countries (CEPS).
This project was funded by USAID under the Translating Research into Action (TRAction) agreement through prime recipient University Research Co., LLC (URC) in order to develop, test, and evaluate behavior change interventions to improve the uptake and correct use of the locally produced Top-Lit Updraft (TLUD) stove in Uganda.
