Designed to optimize fuel-efficiency and reduce toxic emissions when cooking meals, a clean cookstove is one intervention that addresses almost all of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals: ending poverty and hunger; gender equity; child health; maternal health; and environmental sustainability. For half the world’s population, a clean cookstove means one less day of struggling to find enough wood to survive. It means increased safety, better health, less harm to the environment, a higher income, more time and increased employment. To learn more about the cookstove sector, please visit the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.
In the long‐term Potential Energy will support a portfolio of clean technologies for the world’s poorest people using the same user-centered design and novel partnership approach that we’ve applied to our cookstove projects. We started with fuel-efficient cookstoves in Darfur. This is one spark. With your help, we can ignite Potential Energy across the globe.
