The heat storage cooker has been developed by ITDG in Nepal in collaboration with a UK company, Dulas Engineering. The main aims of the work are to investigate materials and processes which enable cooking to be undertaken with reliable, low-cost heat storage devices using electricity generated at micro-hydro installations. This will assist in smoothing energy demand peaks and raising load factors at micro-hydro schemes. Work on establishing the cost, acceptability, safety and performance constraints is designed to make heat storage cookers a realistic alternative to current cooking methods...
