Berkeley Air was contracted by the government of Peru to conduct a large-scale assessment of the fuel and emissions impacts of Peru’s national stove program, in pursuit of their commitments made to mitigate climate change, under a national plan known as a NAMA (nationally appropriate mitigation action). This assessment included kitchen performance testing, surveys, and literature review of a caliber…
Quantifying the Climate, Air Quality, and Health Benefits of Improved Cookstoves: An Integrated Laboratory, Field, and Modeling Study
This study is a collaboration between Colorado State University, Carnegie Mellon University, and Berkeley Air Monitoring Group under the EPA STAR Grant for “Measurements and Modeling for Quantifying Air Quality and Climatic Impacts of Residential Biomass or Coal Combustion for Cooking, Heating, and Lighting”.
Berkeley Air was 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…
Berkeley Air performed carbon-finance project monitoring for Islan’s cookstove projects in southern Africa.
Berkeley Air and our field team implemented a baseline carbon study for Toyola Energy Limited’s charcoal coalpot stove. The study characterized fuel use patterns across Toyola’s customer base and measured fuel use to compare traditional and improved cooking technologies.
Berkeley Air conducted carbon monitoring for Katene Kadji, a stove manufacturer in Bamako, Mali. Katene Kadji is receiving carbon offsets from the sale of its improved charcoal stoves.
Berkeley Air Monitoring Group collaborated with Professor Jay Graham from George Washington University to review the usage assessment methods of a Gold Standard carbon-financed water filtration project.
Berkeley Air is partnering with the Shell Foundation to assess the real-word impact of its Breathing Space Programme (BSP), which is promoting a range of improved biomass stoves through its implementing partner Envirofit International.
Modeling Indoor Air Pollution from Cookstove Emissions in Developing Countries Using a Monte Carlo Single-Box Model
Berkeley Air authored a peer-reviewed article on modeling indoor air pollution (IAP) from fuel/cookstove combinations using a Monte Carlo single-box model.
Berkeley Air partnered with the Shell Foundation to assess the real-word impact of its Breathing Space Programme (BSP), which is promoting a range of improved biomass stoves through its implementing partner Envirofit International.
