This is an exciting opportunity for a Kenyan consulting firm to work with The Loughborough Centre for Sustainable Transitions: Energy, Environment and Resilience (STEER) on a project with the Kenyan Ministry of Energy to critically assess data on alternative cooking fuels and technology. The work will contribute to the development of a new Kenyan National Clean Cooking Strategy (KNCCS) to support the ambitious aim of 100% clean cooking by 2028.

STEER is looking for a consultant to identify and critically assess the scope and quality of current data sources on a range of cooking fuels including fuelwood, charcoal, biodiesel, briquettes, pellets, agricultural waste and municipal waste.  The role will be largely home based for 16 weeks. Proposals should be sent to the Project Manager, Jane Spencer (  by 23:59 BST on Sunday 5th June 2022. For more information, please see the ToRs. 

In response to queries: Kenyan organisations who can demonstrate their track record of working in the sector for at least 5 years, even if the incorporation of their current entity happened less than 5 years ago, are eligible to apply.

The six studies that are being conducted include:

a. Study to evaluate the status of biogas technology in Kenya

b. A separate eCooking Study and Strategy to assess the potential and status of electric cooking in Kenya and make appropriate recommendations

c. Study to assess the extent to which social institutions and businesses in Kenya have embraced clean cooking

d. National scoping of support required by different consumer segments (businesses, institutions and individuals) for promoting and uptake of clean cooking solutions. Including gender disaggregated data for entrepreneurs in clean cooking

e. Study on the status of LPG in Kenya

f. Resource assessment (supply and demand) study for alternative cooking fuels and technologies to electricity, LPG and biogas (fuelwood, charcoal, biodiesel, bioethanol, briquettes, pellets, agricultural waste, municipal waste)
