Scaling Modern Power Infrastructure With Electric Cooking

Electric cooking is an essential part of the solution to deliver modern power infrastructure and access to energy. To maximize this potential, clean cooking needs to be integrated into national energy planning; bringing together stakeholders to ensure aligned policies and tariffs, appropriate household energy infrastructure and accessible products.

As a potential affordable demand solution for households, electric cooking can support the financial feasibility of power generation and utilities as they strengthen and expand. This can improve the investment case for electricity infrastructure at the same time as creating the opportunity for this infrastructure investment to be directed into tackling the clean cooking challenge.

Using inspiring global examples, speakers will highlight the opportunities to scale electrification and electric cooking. They will cover the policies they have established, the tools they have used to model supply- and demand-side electric cooking scenarios and the steps they have taken to reach stakeholders and promote a supportive enabling environment for electric cooking.
