Please join Solar Cookers International’s Analysis of the Economic Impacts of Solar Cooking webinar. With approximately 3 billion people cooking over open fires, there is tremendous potential for countries to save money by avoiding the environmental and health costs associated with biomass cooking. If people relying on solid fuels for cooking switched to cooking with solar cookers even ¼ of the time, countries can save millions, and even billions, of dollars.
This webinar will highlight Economic Impacts of Solar Cooking summary sheets created for almost 200 countries. We will share how we compiled the data and what it means to you, solar cooking advocates. We will discuss:
- How many solar cookers have been identified thus far
- Estimated CO2 emissions prevented by those solar cookers
- Potential CO2 emissions prevented by switching to solar cooking
- Potential savings at the country level by avoiding health care and environmental costs from cooking over open fires
This information can be instrumental in your efforts to scale up solar cooking in your region by collaborating with potential funders and partners.
