Tuvalu Biogas Toolkit

This handbook is meant for households who are interested in lowering high costs of energy sources for cooking purposes for their families. High costs of using kerosene and gas stoves for cooking will not build family resilience to the impacts of climate change. Likewise, on the consumption of imported foods, which are increasingly expensive. Having a biogas stove for cooking at home has been proven in Tuvalu to reduce household expenses for cooking using kerosene and gas stoves by 82% and 92% respectively (Binney, 2015). Other benefits of using biogas are also shown on pages 7 and 9 through success stories from households with biogas stoves.
