Despite extremely high exposure to indoor air pollution from biomass burning, 63 per cent of rural households continue to use firewood, dung cakes and agricultural residue as the primary fuel for cooking finds this new report released by CEEW.

Adoption of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as a clean cooking solution is lagging behind Kenya's 2030 development goal, despite several government initiatives along the LPG value chain. Until now, the government's strategy focused on reducing the cost of LPG and increasing its use among lower-income Kenyans.

ADVOCACY on the use of energy saving of fuel efficient stoves has always focused on rural areas where presumably almost all residents, (approximately 90 percent of all households) use firewood for

Kenya is considering a series of legal and regulatory reforms to boost the uptake of clean energy, a senior government official said on Thursday.

This study examines the expected mitigation of greenhouse gases (GHG) and black carbon (BC) emissions associated to the transition from traditional biomass to clean fuels and clean woodburning cookstoves (CCS) in the Mexican residential sector for the period 2014-2030. We developed a spatial-explicit model at a county-level to understand the GHG trade-offs associated to different spatial-temporal CCS and clean fuels dissemination strategies. A business as usual (BAU) and three alternative scenarios with different targets for CCS and LPG dissemination were constructed.

Delhi government has mandated the use of only cleaner fuels and barred all toxic and polluting fuels. According to the notification by Delhi Pollution Control Committee, only Bharat Stage VI compliant petrol and diesel with 10 ppm sulphur, CNG, LPG, biogas, aviation fuel, energy from waste, charcoal for limited use in tandoors and ironing of clothes, and wood for cremations are allowed. All other pollution causing fuels including petcoke, furnace oil, tyre oil etc are banned.

Kenya is developing a law to promote the uptake of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in order to reduce dependence on fossils fuels, the energy regulator said on Friday.

India’s efforts in providing energy access to those without it have come in for praise by the International Energy Agency (IEA).

The central government’s flagship programme to provide free liquefied petroleum gas connections has been in operation for two years, providing more than 3.5 crore free LPG connections to poor women. This much-needed scheme is a major step to reduce indoor air pollution, drudgery faced by women, and one that promises to extend LPG access. However, little is known about the progress of the scheme. Has it led to sustained use of clean fuels among poor households?
