Installation of High Efficient Wood Burning Cookstoves in Lao PDR

C-Quest Capital LLC C-Quest Capital is a social impact project developer providing access to sustainable energy services and clean energy technologies to families in poor communities around the world. Civitas, in partnership with C-Quest Capital, and with the support of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE), are installing and monitoring the use of energy efficient cookstoves replacing open fires in rural Lao households. This is our second project with C-Quest capital, targeting a total of 75,000 households. Each household is provided with two cookstoves, one imported and one locally produced, to encourage completed stop of cooking on open fires. Our teams are demonstrating the stoves capabilities before registering them to targeted rural households; running a maintenance programme; and completing annual monitoring of stove usage and efficiency for carbon credit trade.
