Evaluation and measurement of wood consumption and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) associated with improved cookstoves implemented by government funded programs in Peru
In October 2015, the Ministry of Energy and Mines (MINEM) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) signed Project Document 00077699: “Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) in the power generation sectors and its final use in Peru”, hereafter (The Project) whose goal is to develop and implement four (04) NAMAs in the energy sector that focus on the design and implementation of strategies and / or development plans low in carbon and resilient to climate change. Each of the NAMAs has a variety of mitigation options that are framed and prioritized in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) that the country presented during COP21 in December 2015 and ratified by Supreme Decree No. 058-2016-RE, in April 2016.
One of the NAMAs includes a “Clean Cooking” mitigation measure that focuses on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the replacement of inefficient kitchens with improved stoves, which is why the NAMAs Project, in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Mines and the Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion, within the framework of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), has the responsibility of monitoring the GHG emissions of the installed improved stoves in comparison with traditional stoves, and reporting the associated GHG reductions as part of the NDC Mitigation Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) System.
General Objective of the Study
The objective of the study is to assess the condition, use, consumption of firewood and GHG emissions and other pollutants associated with a representative group (500 units) of 4 models of improved cookstoves recently installed (2018-2019 ) through the Social Development Cooperation Fund (FONCODES).
- Collect information on the performance, cultural acceptance, operation, efficiency and GHG emissions associated with the use of recently installed improved cookstoves (2018 - 2019), through surveys, KPT tests, durability assessment, condition of parts, fuel consumption, among others. 4 models of improved cookstoves in 500 families will be evaluated, in addition to 100 families that are part of the control group.
- Collect field information on the performance, operation, efficiency and GHG emissions associated with the use of traditional cookstoves through KPT tests.
- Analyze the indicators of Unsatisfied Basic Needs and Living conditions of the households evaluated.
- Analyze the results obtained according to type of technology and evaluation area. Evaluate the impact of technology, state of maintenance and habits of use on the consumption of firewood.
- Estimate the GHG reduction associated with each of the 4 models evaluated in comparison with control groups (traditional cookstoves).
