Measuring and Understanding Household Stove Use Field Study Series

On July 19, 2017 Winrock International and the U.S. EPA hosted a webinar titled "Measuring and Understanding Household Stove Use Field Study Series". In our sector, there is growing recognition of the complex, inter-related barriers to widespread uptake and sustained, exclusive use of improved stoves/fuels. Promising laboratory results showing significant reductions of fuel consumption and toxic emissions are rarely reproducible in the field when the stove is integrated into intricate household cooking systems based on traditional burning of solid fuels. To achieve benefits, use of cleaner and/or more efficient options must be sustained and account for a substantial proportion of cooking tasks. This webinar featured Charity Garland from Berkeley Air Monitoring Group, Katie Gross from Winrock International, Katie Laughlin from StoveTeam International, and Daniel Salinas and Nguyen Hong Hanh from SNV Vietnam, who presented monitoring tools used in these 3 adoption studies (including SUMs analysis software); the findings of each study; and the challenges and lessons learned along the way.
