The World Bank is looking to hire a company for a service contract and testing of cookstove use in Zambia. The findings will feed into the development of the project component. The service contract will include a Stove User Testing and a Market Analysis to ensure that the cookstove change promoted as part of the World Bank project offers a true value proposition to potential consumers and assess how it best fits within the Zambian market. To assess cookstove efficiency, particulate matter (PM) emissions, carbon monoxide (CO) emissions, durability, and safety, cookstoves are tested and certified in labs using a set of standardized ISO protocols. However, such lab tests have no bearing on the actual efficiency of the stove when used in the household achieved by users cooking with them. In addition, it yields no results on potential fuel and cash savings or stove acceptance.
The objective of the Stove User Testing is to produce a comparative analysis of cookstoves currently in use.
