No one’s life should be limited by how they cook. Yet globally, three billion people depend on polluting, open fires or inefficient stoves to cook their food, harming health, the climate, and the environment. Women and girls, who often spend hours cooking and collecting fuel, are disproportionately affected.
Cleaner, more modern stoves and fuels have the potential to reduce deaths from smoke-related illnesses, mitigate climate change, and lower air pollution. They can provide new sources of livelihoods for women while reducing the risk and drudgery of fuel collection, and can lower household expenditures on cooking fuel.
fosera has been working to deliver clean energy access since 2011. The organisation initially focused on delivering lighting products for off-grid areas, but has since transitioned into developing off-grid appliances. This includes the development of their solar powered e-cooking device, which received funding from the Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) programme through the Efficiency for Access Research and Development Fund.
The solar e-cooking device will be used to cook beans and rice and function like a slow cooker. The device will be powered entirely by the sun with an energy stored battery system. This means that it can be used in the evening and throughout the night. This device will help customers make cleaner and more efficient choices for cooking.
