This policy brief reviews the existing policies pertaining to clean cooking energy, analyses a broad range of demand- and supply-side challenges that hinder the penetration and sustained use of clean cooking energy solutions, and proposes an interdisciplinary and multidimensional national approach for addressing these issues.

SaferRwanda, a non-profit organisation focusing on environmental protection through use of household solar systems and efficient cookstoves with reduced emissions, has scooped global award from Ene

Funding to boost the numbers of people with access to electric power and clean cooking is too low to meet the global goal for everyone to have modern, reliable and affordable energy by 2030, intern

Financing, policy and operating needs of enterprises delivering energy access will be critical to achieve SDG7. This report looks at five key countries – Bangladesh, Myanmar, Kenya, Ethiopia and Nigeria – and provides insights on actions needed to scale up decentralized renewable electricity and clean cooking solutions.

This new report, Understanding the Landscape: Tracking Finance for Electricity and Clean Cooking Access in High-Impact Countries, provides a pathway to refine and improve strategies to accelerate progress in delivering universal energy access.

“Energizing Finance: Scaling and Refining Finance in Countries with Large Energy Access Gaps,” offers key insights and recommendations to support governments and development finance institutions boost finance levels – and use it more effectively.

Unclean combustion of solid fuel for cooking and other household energy needs leads to severe household air pollution and adverse health impacts in adults and children. Replacing traditional solid fuel stoves with high efficiency, low-polluting semi-gasifier stoves can potentially contribute to addressing this global problem.

Millions of residents in some of the fastest growing cities in the world don’t have access to clean, reliable energy, and the challenge of reaching them is not getting easier.

“Previous studies have looked solely at direct emissions from cookstoves,” says Andrew Grieshop, an assistant professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering at NC State and correspo

The National Energy Policy has become critical for any country. The initiative by NITI Aayog to prepare a draft NEP (DNEP) is wholly welcome, as it comes at a critical juncture in India’s post-independence era. DNEP considers the energy scenario by 2040 whereas Integrated Energy Policy (IEP) of 2011 had done so for year 2031-32.
