Cost Benefit Model for Clean Cooking in the Carbon Markets


This Excel-based clean cooking cost benefit model provides crucial understanding of project feasibility under different scenarios based on the emission reduction potential per cookstove and their implementation rate.

A feasibility study is generally the first step prospective project developers take to decide whether certification under an existing carbon standard is possible and financially viable. Typically, external consultants must prepare these studies and present them in the form of a technical report backed by a financial model.

We developed this simplified tool to support early-stage clean cooking project developers to conduct initial feasibility assessments.
