Prime Cookstoves ( is a company established by Differ and Dr. M. Nurhuda in 2013. Our main mission is to make clean and efficient cookstoves attractive and affordable for the poor. By creating affordable cooking solutions for the people at the “bottom of the pyramid” (BOP) we seek to reduce the health risks associated with the use of traditional cooking methods, reduce the need for fuelwood and, hence, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and reduce end-users’ economic burden of increasing prices and reduced availability of fuels for cooking purposes. Prime aims to do this by creating a thriving business where innovative products that create effective, affordable and desirable solutions for the BOP customers are sold commercially.

Prime Cookstoves’ headquarter is in Oslo, Norway, whilst our manufacturing, logistics and R&D departments are based in Malang, Indonesia. In order to strengthen our team and scale up sales, Prime Cookstoves is now looking to hire a flexible, driven and entrepreneurial Business Development Manager, based in Indonesia.

Tanzania To Use More Natural Gas And Coal To Combat Energy Poverty

By: Karima Hirji  on: Tue 12 of Aug., 2014 10:05 GMT  (616 Views)
In the last several years, Tanzania has suffered from a growing energy deficit, in part due to recurring droughts that have crippled hydropower capacity. The government recently launched a 10-year initiative aiming to diversify its power generation sources to include more natural gas and introduce coal. Concerns about the climate are legitimate, but to raise its citizens out of poverty, the energy roadmap has prioritised raising per capita income in Tanzania from $640 to at least $3,000. Critics say the government has mostly failed to tap the country’s other renewable energy potential to help bridge the power gap.
