Supporting clean energy adoption in Rural India
TERI has installed around 25000 cookstoves in Bihar. From the use of these stoves, carbon credits are being generated. TERI with the support from VNV Advisory Services are able to sell these carbon credits and generate revenue. The same fund is being utilized for maintenance and replacement of cookstove and other components in Bihar engaging the women energy entrepreneurs. TERI has been setting up women energy enterprises who are being engaged in maintenance and servicing of cookstoves in different districts of Bihar.
