CO2balance are excited to announce the initiation of a new Improved Cookstove Project in Central Kenya, the Murang’a Improved Cookstove Project. We have partnered with Wisdom Energy Hub, providing support through carbon financing.

Wisdom Energy Hub conducted a hugely successful project launch meeting at the end of April, with 15 members of the community in attendance; the maximum number of people able to gather with current Covid regulations in Kenya.

The meeting lasted two hours within which the community were introduced to the project and a live demonstration of the stove was conducted. Three participants ended up buying a stove each!

Following the successful Project Launch Meeting, the priority has been on establishing a reliable distribution system. Training of Last Mile Distributors has also successfully been completed.
