In 2018, KRC has constructed 11 institutional energy saving cook stoves in Kabarole District. this is a bulid up on other 7 stoves that were constructed while marking KRC @20. The stoves are wll drastically reduce fuel wood consumption by atleast 40%.

  1. We appreciate KRC efforts to promote clean energy and save trees through the institutional Energy Cook stoves.
    It is my prayer for KRC ato continue the advocacy and partner with the District Local governments to institutionalize these efforts. If all schools had energy saving cook-stoves, we would save millions of trees.

    Thanks for implementing SDG 7 affordable and clean energy; 13(Climate Action and 15 (Life on Land). Kudos!
