Achieving Large-Scale Transition to Clean Cooking Solutions in India

70% of the Indian population continues to depend on biomass and other unprocessed/unclean fuels for their cooking requirements [1]. Over the last three decades, India has seen the launch of several clean cooking programs to address this issue with a limited amount of success. In the last five years, there has been an increased push in the promotion of LPG, specifically under the Prime Minister’s initiative, Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, as an alternative to traditional chulhas and unprocessed biofuels due to it being a low carbon fossil fuel.
