Commercialising clean cookstoves and sustainable biomass fuel in Zambia

The project aims to procure and distribute energy efficient cook-stoves, as well as produce and sell renewable biomass fuel (e.g. wood-chips and pellets). The target is to sell 30,000 stoves and 8,000 tonnes (cumulative) of biomass in two years. The business is expected to be self-sustaining at these volumes, based on the repeat sales of biomass fuel to customers that would have bought stoves.
