*Improved Household Charcoal Stoves in Ghana(ID: 103000000002503)
Swiss Carbon Value Ltd.
The project will reduce greenhouse emissions by disseminating fuel-efficient charcoal stoves. The improved charcoal stove reduces fuel consumption by introduction of a ceramic liner that increases combustion efficiency and retains heat. Currently, inefficient and polluting cooking regimes are deeply entrenched in Ghanaian culture. Carbon finance provides a means to increase affordability of stoves by significantly lowering their retail price, while introducing quality guarantees and an ongoing monitoring and evaluation component.
