Fuels for cooking in the Sub-Saharan schools is a large component of overall energy demand, and the need for access to improved energy for cooking in schools is a major and often overlooked component of SDG7-” Access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”.
Research shows that most schools across East Africa use firewood to cook for students, or charcoal in some cases. Biomass cooking in Rwanda contributes to rising deforestation and climate change
MVUKE ENERGIES (from Swahili meaning steam energies) Ltd is focused on transitioning from biomass cooking to electric cooking in Rwandan schools.
With the first ever 300 L electric pressure cooker (EPC) currently under the pilot phase by MVUKE ENERGIES Ltd in Rwanda, it has been proved that the substitution of firewood cookers with electric pressure cookers annually offsets nearly 4,000 tons of biomass in a single school feeding 1,000 students with the potential to scale up in 4,000 schools in 2 years of operation
