Efficient, Clean Cooking and Heating
Access to efficient, clean cooking and heating (ECCH) — lags furthest behind the SDG7 targets. Developing sustainable markets for ECCH and accelerating adoption of technologies has been hampered by lack of financing, slow technological progress, low consumer awareness, and lack of infrastructure for fuel and stove production and distribution. ESMAP is putting clean cooking and heating on the front burner. Its ECCH program is addressing challenges through policy advice, mobilizing investments, and piloting innovative approaches to attract concessional and private sector funding.
