Association pour la Recherche et la Promotion de l’Energie Durable en Afrique Centrale (ARPEDAC)
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of low income people in the Central Africa Sub-region through Energy Efficiency Technologies including improved stove, and through use of sustainable, safe and affordable energy small scale off-grid. ARPEDAC is also carrying on research and advocacy to create favourable policy to improve low cost homes, including waste management (briquette from waste, biogas from human manure and waste), waste water recycling systems.

Clean Cooking Activities
ARPEDAC is working in collaboration with governments, industry, universities, and research bodies on affordable products, practices, and services to establish a market-based institutional delivery system of improved indoor air quality technologies. Our focus is on research and development, capacity building, awareness creation, increase access to quality and smooth supply of products and income generation.
ARPEDAC in Cameroon in particular and the Central Africa sub-region in general can:
- Share research findings, experiences and case studies.
- Engage actively in lobbying and advocacy work to influence local, regional or national strategy and policy in relation to household energy, indoor air pollution and health.
- Organise workshops, seminars, and International conferences, and promoting household energy, indoor air pollution and health energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and eco-buildings in Central Africa
- Provide to member of the network an independent testing and advisory services for low cost energy efficient cooking, heating and ventilation technologies including improve cooking.
