Our Experience And Interest In The Four PCIA Central Focus Areas

Social/Cultural barriers to using traditional fuels and stoves:

Low adoption of solar technologies in rural Kenya has been documented by the Ministry of Roads and Public Works. It is our attempt to address this issue in our designs. Use of media and other social events and annual county agricultural is expected to generate interest. It is also hoped that sponsorship from the private sector will make these devices widely available.


Market development for improved cooking technologies:

We intend to enlist the support of experts in marketing especially from Egerton University.


Technology standardization for cooking, heating and ventilation:

Rift Technologies intends to patent the innovation with Kenya Intellectual Property Organization (KIPO).


Indoor air pollution exposure and health monitoring:

Monitoring will be done in collaboration with Egerton University - Department of Civil Engineering and Environment.
