7000 Innovative Stoves Installed in Nigeria, With More on Their Way

CQC's new rural stoves program in Nigeria installing innovative brick and metal rocket stoves reached 7000 stoves of the planned 12,000 first phase. After testing of various distribution business models and capacity building for stove makers and field coordinators, CQC's women-owned and managed partners, SOSAI Renewable Energies, achieved 2500 stove per month installation rate as of June, despite the onset of rains. On the basis of this success, CQC and investment partners BioCarbon Group are reviewing program expansion to 20,500 stoves by the end of 2016.
