Unit Economics Toolkit and Report
The Unit Economics Toolkit is intended to help stakeholders analyze the unit economics of a range of clean cooking ventures. It can support companies to understand the potential for, and barriers to, achieving profitability and can support investors to compare companies. It also provides an accessible entry to get a quick understanding of the basic economics of clean cooking ventures.
The Toolkit has been designed to provide a careful balance between flexibility and robustness:
- Flexibility. It can be deployed to support a range of nuanced clean cooking business models and technologies. Many of the inputs to the Toolkit can be changed by users, tailored to reflect business-specific context or more up-to-date information.
- Evidence-based. It builds in second-party datasets and assumptions to provide pre-loaded insights, based on data analysis and assumptions informed by the stakeholder engagement and company data collected as part of the development process.
- Pragmatic. The Toolkit does not attempt to predict the unit economics of a particular clean cooking venture’s commercial journey. Nor does it represent a prescriptive requirement on how companies should record or account for their data. Rather, it provides a pragmatic bird’s-eye view of some of the key elements that will affect a company’s path to profitability and helps identify risks and opportunities to unit cost evolution.
The Toolkit is accompanied by the Unit Economics Framework and Analysis for the Clean Cooking Sector report. This report sets out the evidence on key unit economics drivers for the clean cooking sector. It explores the differences in unit economics across three illustrative clean cooking archetypes and across nine priority country contexts.
