dc.description.abstract The Thai Bucket Stove was modified to suit Kenyan conditions as the Kenya Ceramic Jiko (KCJ) under the Kenya Renewable Energy Development Programme. An evaluation of the dissemination and impact of the KCJ against the traditional charcoal metal stove (TMS) was undertaken. Three areas in Nairobi and four in Kisumu were chosen as survey areas. The stove saves 10%-50% charcoal consumption, depending on location, use and socioeconomic category. The stove was not adopted because: low income groups find it too expensive, therefore the stove is adopted more by middle and high income groups; there is a lack of standardization in the production of liners; poor quality liners have disappointed users; and the production costs increase because pottery clay is not available to the producers. en_US
