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.
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.
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).
Under the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air, the USEPA sponsored Berkeley Air to conduct KPT trainings and studies for Partner programs in India (First Energy), Nepal (Centre for Rural Technology, Alternative Energy Promotion Center), and Peru (GIZ-EnDev, SENCICO). In-home emissions measurements of greenhouse gases and health-damaging pollutants were also made in Nepal and India.
Berkeley Air provided IAP monitoring equipment, training, and analysis and reporting support to a team of researchers from the University of Mary Washington undertaking a study of an improved cookstove program. The team conducted IAP monitoring in 40 households in a small squatter community on the outskirts of El Progresso, Honduras.
Berkeley Air was contracted by the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (under the auspices of the US Environmental Protection Agency) to conduct two regional technical capacity building workshops on indoor air pollution and household energy monitoring for members of the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air in Africa and Asia.
