The University of North Carolina, Copperbelt University and the Center for Energy, Environment and Engineering (CEEEZ) are undertaking an impact evaluation of two, private sector-led, clean cooking interventions on adoption and sustained use of clean cooking technologies, charcoal use, household expenditures on cooking energy, exposure to household air pollution, and self-reported indicators of health. Two firms are piloting clean cooking products in Lusaka with plans to scale up to tens of thousands of customers in the next 1-5 years.

Supamoto is marketing the Mimi Moto fan microgasification cookstove (red stove pictured right) and biomass pellets to households in Lusaka, Zambia. Vitalite is marketing efficient charcoal stoves, called the EcoZoom (blue stove pictured below), to households in Lusaka.
