Transition to electric cooking in India
There are many technology options available for electricity based cooking, such as induction cooktops, electric pressure cookers, and solar energy based cooktops, with loads ranging between 700 watt and 2 kilowatt. The fuel efficiency of electric cooking options is also higher than LPG stoves. The recent increase in prices of LPG cylinder refill has made the cost per meal from electric stoves even lower, at the current average electricity tariffs. The draft National Energy Policy by NITI Aayogalso aims to achieve access to clean cooking energy for all by 2022 and the policy emphasizes on electricity based cooking.
