The use of solid fuels in open fires and traditional cookstoves for cooking are some of the world’s most pressing health and climate issues, directly impacting close to half the world’s population and leading to more than four million premature deaths each year.
Inefficient cooking is also a root cause of poverty, poor health, gender inequality, air pollution and climate change.
The company has since 2011 supported the cookstove fuel and cookstove supplier, Miombo AS. Miombo recently completed a cookstove fuel and cookstove project in Zambia
and New Energy Systems staffed and provided project management at Miombo's sales outlet in Lusaka, Zambia.
