Persuading people to change lifelong consumption habits and switch to alternative processes and technologies is a humongous challenge. Under our clean cooking initiative, we aim to do precisely that. Under our clean cooking initiative, DBF promotes solar energy, off-grid products to households and LPG connections under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojna. Provisioning of fuel efficient cook stoves and household bio-gas plants are the outputs of this project. In transforming this basic daily necessity of cooking lies the potential for great change. As part of the project, product demonstrations were carried out in the villages and beneficiaries are explained about the various benefits of using fuel efficient cook stoves and bio-gas plants. A total number of 473 fuel efficient cook stoves have been distributed in 2017-18 which has benefited 2,365 people and helped in avoiding 1553.805 CO2 reductions.
