THE FINANCING CLEAN COOKING SERIES
Energy 4 Impact and Loughborough University, the lead implementing partner on the UK aid-funded Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) programme, signed an agreement in 2020 to collaborate on research into financing for the clean cooking sector.
The Financing Clean Cooking series aims to facilitate the transition to clean cooking through financing and investment. The series is targeted at a diverse range of public and private stakeholders in clean cooking, including NGOs, donors, investors and suppliers.
Clean Cooking: Structuring Concessions for Displaced People is the third report in the series and looks at the potential for clean cooking concessions in refugee camps and other displacement settings. Building on work completed under the Moving Energy Initiative, the report reviews recent developments in clean cooking in displacement settings and re-xamines the attitudes of different stakeholders towards the concession concept.
It looks at the opportunities for concessions in different locations, the key ingredients for success, the main risks and risk mitigation strategies, and contractual issues. Finally, it calls on donors to make interventions to develop the clean cooking concession further.
