Project overview 

The objective of this project is to provide energy efficient and cost-effective renewable energy products (appliances) to Basotho living in the rural areas of Lesotho and reduce their reliance on scarce fuel wood resources. The introduction of these technologies, such as energy efficient cookstoves, can reduce the use of biomass by up to 80%, allowing for gradual restoration of the natural cover.
