A new collaboration programme of activity between Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) programme, funded by UK aid (FCDO), and Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) was announced at COP27 today during the MECS-SEforALL joint session ‘The Twin Opportunity: Electricity Spurring a Clean e-Cooking Transition’, which took place in the Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) Pavilion.
SEforALL is an international organization working with leaders in government, the private sector and civil society to drive further, faster action toward achievement of SDG7. The MECS programme has been researching the socio-economic realities of a transition from polluting fuels to a range of modern fuels. Whilst the research covers several clean fuels, the evidence is pointing to the viability, cost effectiveness, and user satisfaction that energy efficient electric cooking devices provide. Together, MECS and SEforALL are working on a collaborative programme of activity designed to strengthen the integration of eCooking (cooking with electricity) within an integrated approach to energy planning.
There will be opportunities available for a suitable eCooking expert(s) to join the team. Details to be published on the MECS and SEforALL websites imminently. In the meantime, for further details on this, or to discuss opportunities for other partners to join the collaboration, then please contact Professor Ed Brown (MECS) or Mikael Melin (SEforALL).
