Join MECS, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), World Resources Institute (WRI) and guests for our session at the Forum which will showcase ongoing and emerging efforts to use innovative geospatial modelling and integrated planning to identify promising markets for modern, affordable cooking solutions such as electric cooking. The session will also discuss how national movements in Nepal and Kenya are making use of new market opportunities (namely surplus electricity) to advance access to modern cooking services.
Capacity Building hub session: Integrating Modern Cooking Solutions into Energy Planning (in-person)
19 May, 11:30 CAT.
Everyone joining the SEforALL Forum is invited to join this Capacity Building Hub session led by MECS, Fraym and SEforALL where we will showcase the role integrated energy planning can play in expanding clean cooking access. Innovative geospatial integrated planning methodologies are leveraging emerging and modern technologies in clean cooking. Drawing on real-world examples, this session will showcase the role that integrated energy planning can play in expanding access to clean cooking, using cost effective high-efficient cooking appliances, while exploiting synergies with concurrent least cost electrification models. (No previous knowledge needed.)
