Die Auswirkungen

As considerably less fuel is needed, time spent collecting firewood or cooking is reduced so families have more time for other income-generating activities or to improve their living standards; this also alleviates pressure on Uganda’s remaining forests. Users have also noted their respiratory health has improved, they reported significantly less coughing since using the new stoves thanks to the reduction in indoor air pollution. For communities without a reliable grid connection, or who rely on diesel generators for sporadic electricity, this project offers a solution: the HomeStove generates its own electricity, providing users with enough reliable, on-demand electricity in a day’s cooking to fully charge a mobile phone and provide an evening’s worth of bright, LED light.
