KOKO Networks Clean Ethanol Cooking Fuel
Project developed by KOKO Networks
Household devices and fuel switching
Replacing the current cooking stove technology with stoves that use renewable fuels or are more more energy-efficient.
About the project
KOKO is a technology platform helping to protect tropical forests through rapidly scaling the energy transition from deforestation-charcoal to sustainable bioethanol cooking fuel. This is delivered through a high-tech renewable fuel utility platform that includes dense networks of self-service KOKO Fuel ATMs that provide convenient access to ultra-clean fuel at a price that significantly undercuts charcoal. Charcoal cooking fuel is the leading driver of deforestation in Africa. To protect Africa’s forests, a large-scale and rapid transition away from charcoal is required. KOKO’s solution is delivering this transition, using carbon credit proceeds to make smart appliances and clean fuel affordable for even the poorest income segments in Kenya’s rapidly growing cities. KOKO’s solution is modern, clean, safe and affordable and produces no harmful particulate emissions or indoor air pollution.
