Household appliance distribution in Lao PDR – CPA003
Location: Lao PDR (Rural)
Duration: 2018 - present
Carbon Standard: United Nations Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) (PoA 10030)
The objective of the project is to reduce non-renewable biomass consumption for cooking and water boiling, therefore reducing greenhouse gas emissions, by introducing more energy efficient cookstove model in firewood using households in Lao PDR.
- The project activity is a CPA under Differ Cookstove AS’s registered CDM PoA 10030: Household Energy Appliance Programme.
C-Quest Capital LLC (USA) is 50% shareholder of Differ Cookstoves AS and will manage the PoA. Civitas (Laos) will implement the program on the ground. Ecoeye Co., Ltd. and Korean Zinc (Korea) are the investors.
- This specific project supports the installation and maintenance of an imported energy efficient cookstove, SSM 32-13 from China. The project is open to other stoves as well.
C-Quest Capital LLC (“CQC”) and Civitas will coordinate the installation and monitoring of SSM S32-13 in rural households where the baseline stove is an iron tri-pod or three-stone fire or other form of open fire for cooking. The target number of households to receive the stoves is 100,000.
