  • Case study: A user-centred approach to understanding household energy decision-making (India) | GVEP International
    over household energy choices in order to identify practical ways to support communities shifting to cleaner energy use Globally 1 4 billion people lack access to electricity and an estimated 2 7 billion rely on traditional biomass wood charcoal animal waste and agricultural residues for cooking and space heating Roughly one third of this population lives in rural India Over the past two decades considerable efforts have been made to introduce improved cookstoves and or cleaner cooking fuels in India but as in other countries these interventions have largely failed to bring about a large scale transition towards cleaner more modern cooking technologies It has been argued that a central problem with most efforts has been that they paid too little attention to users needs and cultural contexts but rather over emphasised technical factors such energy efficiency and emissions reductions The authors use a qualitative generative research methodology to investigate energy use and dynamics in four villages in Haryana State They find a range of social cultural and financial factors that influence the way people make decisions about energy and cooking including the availability and flexibility of traditional fuels the type of dishes prepared the taste of food problems with

  • Up in Smoke: The Influence of Household Behavior on the Long-Run Impact of Improved Cooking Stoves | GVEP International
    Technology MIT Department of Economics National Bureau of Economic Research NBER American Bar Foundation Abstract It is conventional wisdom that it is possible to reduce exposure to indoor air pollution improve health outcomes and decrease greenhouse gas emissions in rural areas of developing countries through the adoption of improved cooking stoves This is largely supported by observational field studies and engineering or laboratory experiments However we provide new evidence from a randomized control trial conducted in rural Orissa India one of the poorest places in India on the benefits of a commonly used improved stove that laboratory tests showed to reduce indoor air pollution and require less fuel We track households for up to four years after they received the stove While we find a meaningful reduction in smoke inhalation in the first year there is no effect over longer time horizons We find no evidence of improvements in lung functioning or health and there is no change in fuel consumption and presumably greenhouse gas emissions The difference between the laboratory and field findings appears to result from households revealed low valuation of the stoves Households failed to use the stoves regularly or appropriately did not make the necessary investments
