Modern Energy Cooking Services

mecs logoSo, Loughborough University are leading a major programme of work on modern energy cooking services.  This builds on our work and blogging here.

The Minister opened the programme last week…..

“On 4th April 2019, academics, researchers, private sector representatives and UK government officials gathered in Loughborough, UK, to celebrate the official launch of the five-year, Department for International Development(DfID) funded Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) programme. Led by Loughborough University and the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Programme (ESMAP), the £39.8 million MECS programme aims to rapidly accelerate the transition from biomass (wood/charcoal) based cooking to modern, clean, low carbon energy-efficient alternative methods that utilise renewable sources of electricity such as solar photovoltaic systems.”

I guess this blog will diminish while that blog increases!   However, keep an eye on here, because I will keep posting the more informal speculative stuff.
