This NAMA intends to reduce emissions through the promotion of the use of improved energy efficient cook stoves in educational institutions at all levels in the different regions of Uganda.
The promotion of energy efficient cookstoves will be achieved first by sensitising the main stakeholder, who are the Ministry of Education and Sports, to encourage the development of a policy instrument that ensures all educational institutions (EIs) in the country use energy efficient stoves. This policy instrument could include incentives in form of grants and loans for compliance. Sensitisation will then be directed towards district staff including the District Education Officer, the District Inspector of Schools, headteachers, teachers, school management committees and parents on the importance of mitigating GHGs through the use of energy efficient stoves.
A database of schools and their energy status will be made and subsequently updated on a regular basis. From this database beneficiary educational institutions will be selected based on particular criteria that will include number of pupils, energy status, financial status and willingness to pay. The EIs will be divided into five groups corresponding to the intended year of installation. The first group of EIs will then be assisted to apply for subsidies and loans from microfinance institutions (MFIs) depending on their need. The intent is to provide a subsidy for half the cost, and a loan for the remainder. The loans will be provided through a revolving fund, which will introduce an element of sustainability to the initiative. An amount of money will be available as a loan facility to the EIs through an MFI depending on their needs. This amount will enable the EIs to purchase the required number of stoves from manufacturers or their dealers, who will then be responsible for supplying and maintaining them. Manufacturers or their dealers will sign an installation and maintenance contract. The EIs will start repaying the loan after purchasing and installing these stoves and complete repayment should be between 6 and 9 months. This amount will then be available to the next group of EIs and thus become revolving.
The NAMA will also support the development of a sustainable stove industry by providing entrepreneurs including technicians and artisans with loans through microfinance institutions to improve their businesses or start up new businesses. This loan facility will be accompanied with both technical skills in the manufacture and maintenance of stoves and financial and business skills in small and medium enterprise (SME) management. The NAMA will provide funds to MFIs and build capacity to develop appropriate business models for stove manufacturers.
In order to assure the quality of stoves being produced, this NAMA will support the development of an appropriate standard for institutional stoves with Uganda National Bureau of Standards.
The types of stove to be promoted include mainly the rocket stove (Adkins et al, 2010) which can reduce fuelwood consumption by 33% and other appropriate models.
