Review of Household Clean Energy Technology for Lighting, Charging and Cooking in East Africa—Kenya and Tanzania – full report

The report, authored by consultants from GVEP for AWF and JGI, focuses on the technologies of improved cookstoves, biomass briquettes and eco-charcoal, solar, biogas and wind. Each technology option has a range of both imported and local products which vary in capacity and price. The energy market in Kenya is slightly more advanced than in neighboring Tanzania and the report has listed key suppliers of these technologies in both countries. Whilst most are located in the major cities and towns, they will supply products countrywide and are expanding their activities into rural areas through partnerships and dealer networks.
