Project/Program or commercial distribution: The Patsari Program is based in the Highlands of Central Mexico, and seeks to set up a model that can be up scaled and replicated in other regions. The program has five main components that are highly integrated: technology innovation and market development, a cookstove dissemination package, support to micro-enterprise development, monitoring and evaluation and outreach activities. One of the program salient features is the development and dissemination of a new efficient woodburning cookstove named “Patsari”.

Number of stoves sold or distributed: 40000

Performance

Efficiency testing method and who did it: In the CCT for tortilla making, the main cooking task in Mexican rural households, Patsari stoves showed fuelwood savings ranging from 44% to 65% in relation to traditional open fires (n ¼ 6; Po0.05). These savings were similar in magnitude to the average energy savings from KPT before and after Patsari adoption of 67% in ruralhouseholds exclusively using fuelwood. Similar energy savings of 66% for fuelwood and 64% for LPG, respectively, were also observed in households using mixed fuels.

Fuel saving: 67%
