Clean, affordable and sustainable cooking energy for India: possibilities and realities beyond LPG
CEEW's latest study 'Clean, Affordable and Sustainable Cooking Energy for India: Possibilities and Realities beyond LPG' analyses potential alternate cooking options, going beyond LPG. The options which were assessed include the centrally distributed commodities like LPG, PNG, electricity and the decentralised options such as biogas and improved biomass cookstoves. A multi-criteria comparative analysis was conducted, incorporating various dimensions such as economics, fuel supply assurance, technology resilience, cooking convenience, environmental impacts, etc. The analysis utilised the existing wealth of literature and secondary data, while tapping into the knowledge and experience of technology experts through online surveys and interviews.
