The facility introduced five types of new, high-efficiency, quality-assured biomass stoves. Well exceeding the target goal, over 72,000 of these stoves were delivered and adopted by Ugandan households as of September 2020. These fuel-efficient stoves led to a 30 percent decrease in CO2emissions (compared to those they replaced) and save 20,740 tons of charcoal per year. They have also led to savings in cooking time and money.
An ESMAP-funded grant facility that began in 2017, implemented by the Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU), put in place market incentives that established eight new manufacturer-distributor partnerships.
