Grid-eCook price parity in Africa

africa gridKittner et al. (2017) suggests that the main eCook component cost, battery storage, is following Leach and Oduros’ optimistic scenario, with faster than expected learning curves suggesting that 200USD/kWh could be a reality by 2019.  Similarly, initial prototyping has shown that efficiency gains in the cooking processes can even exceed Leach and Oduro’s optimistic scenario for energy demand.  We created a set of choropleths for Africa, in the hope they become a decision tool for policy actors.  The figure illustrates the LCoE[i] thresholds eCook will have to cross to be at price parity with the alternative fuels.
