Biomass Cooking: Evolution and Scale on the Road to Universal Access

Biomass remains the mainstay of cooking for households and institutions across the developing world both in rural settings where consumers have few viable alternatives, and in urban settings where consumers stack multiple solutions in their day-to-day cooking mix. The challenge remains that much of the biomass cooking that occurs in developing regions is neither clean nor efficient. Alongside an industry of improved and clean cookstoves there is renewed focus on commercial biomass fuel distribution models and integrated ‘tool and fuel’ models that are attempting to bring more value to the consumer beyond the stove sale. How are businesses evolving in the biomass segment, attracting investment, and scaling solutions for clean biomass cooking and what is the role of clean biomass on the road to universal access?

This session will discuss the crucial place of biomass tools and fuel in the clean cooking sector and the evolving business models that are driving adoption of clean biomass solutions. Speakers from some of the leading organizations in the segment will unpack key issues such as: why the segment has historically not attracted large investment, the role of innovation in driving scale and impact, what is missing to reach scalable biomass fuel distribution models, and the opportunities and challenges of carbon finance in the ecosystem.
