- Clean and Efficient Cooking and Heating Project, China
Located in the rural areas of Shanxi Province, China, this fuel-switching project reduces greenhouse gases (GHGs) by replacing coal with renewable biomass on a household level. More than 7,000 inefficient coal burning stoves are replaced with highly efficient ones that use agricultural residue, which are currently burned in the fields as waste. The GHG reductions are approximately 82,000 tonnes per year as well as improved indoor air quality as less fumes are produced from more efficient combustion. By using agricultural waste as a source of fuel, families are also saving on fuel spending, allowing for better use of family income.
