Technology Performance

For almost all household energy projects, how well a cookstove or other technology performs in homes is fundamental to the success of the program. With our network of partners around the world, we can measure the most critical indicators of technology performance in the field. We have extensive experience using standardized protocols such as the Kitchen Performance Test and the Controlled Cooking Test, as well as customized research methods to meet the needs of specific projects.

Technology performance indicators that we measure in the field include:

  • Fuel consumption and stove efficiency
  • Emissions of health-damaging and climate-forcing pollutants
  • Usage and adoption
  • Usability
  • Durability
  • Safety
