PROJECTS

Distribution of Solar Cook stoves in Rajasthan

IORA partnered with Climate Healers, a US-based non-profit working on developing and distributing solar cookstoves as an alternate to fuelwood and charcoal. Climate Healers focuses on promoting butterfly style parabolic solar cookers produced in India and China. The parabolic cookers provide focused heat necessary for traditional Indian cooking, including baking rotis and frying.

We were responsible for assisting in the proliferation of the solar cookstoves by providing the Program access to the Gold Standard (GS) Voluntary Emission Reduction (VER) cycle, monetizing credits and designing a fund distribution scheme for individual households as a performance incentive for usage.
