Beyond Fire: how to achieve electric cooking

Created Jun 06 2019, 10:29 AM by Caroline Adongo Ochieng

This updated version of Beyond Fire: How to achieve sustainable cooking is commissioned by Hivos and World Future Council and calculates the cost range for cooking with various different appliances in which both the upfront costs, as well as the ongoing usage-related costs are taken into account. The report concludes that the costs of cooking with electricity - both in mini-grid contexts and via solar home systems - is now well within the range of cost-competitiveness of other cooking alternatives. A potential breakthrough in the currently trapped cooking sector!
