Evaluation of an improved cookstove in households in Zambia

Berkeley Air supported an improved cookstove project to conduct a survey to determine rates of stove usage and loss among beneficiaries and to measure the fuel efficiency of each stove vintage using the water boiling test (WBT). Results were used to develop a methodology for forecast greenhouse gas emissions reductions.

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).
