Result 4: Access to the clean and fuel efficiency

Over the past year, the programme has also incorporated the development of optimal stove dimensions for smaller designs, resulting in prototypes PTT4.1, PTT4.2, PTT5, which are currently undergoing testing.  A wood ICS is also under development and will be tested in the first quarter of 2014.


The ICS programme database, or “Dbase”, was established in 2012 and was finetuned and made operational in 2013. The database stores data on the producer-, retailer- and user-level, including number of stoves sold, dates sold, serial numbers of stoves and end-user names, addresses and contacts.  Quality Control Officers (QCOs) work closely with producers to record production data, while Promotion Officers (POs) visit retailers in order to collect the coupons that have been filled out by customers.  All of this data is then entered into the Dbase.  In 2013 data for 1,329 end users were entered in the Dbase, which will help to verify dissemination claims and give credibility to the programme.  It also allows project staff to contact users for satisfaction surveys, stove usage data, lottery draws, and other matters.
