Abstract

Cooking is one of the household activities with high energy requirements, especially for communities living off the grid in sub-Saharan Africa. Traditionally, open stoves have been used for cooking and these are energy inefficient and have potential to release harmful pollutants to the environment. The adoption of eco-friendly cook stoves is therefore of importance in order to conserve energy and also improve energy efficiency. The consideration of design parameters such as heat transfer, combustion and thermal efficiency as well as the material of construction is therefore of utmost importance.
