Crispin and others who do work in Indonesia,
I thank Xavier for the link about
Clean Cookstove Models that have Received Government Accreditation in
the Second Period:
It is useful for many people to see. Shows a functional clasification
system and the ratings of 7 stoves. There are also (somewhere) the
results of the First Period of testing.
I would appreciate information about the price in Indonesia (but give in
dollars or provide the exchange rate) of each of those approved stoves
(the 7 plus any others). That should be available. Please note any
info about subsidies, etc. so that we can have realistic comparisons.
Less available but of interest would be any information about the number
of each of those stoves being sold.
