The Programme for Biomass Energy Conservation (ProBEC) is a GTZ implemented SADC programme funded by Germany and the Dutch Government. The Programme is currently operating in 7 of the SADC countries, with the aim to reduce biomass derived energy consumption and expenditure, particularly by low-income households.

ProBEC wishes to enage in preparatopry activities prior to the launch of a full-scale programme of work in South Africa. A baseline study on appropriate kitchen management practices is required, outlining the extent to which households and specifically cooks, implement efficient kitchen management strategies in ther daily cooking activities.

The implementation of appropriate kitchen management and energy savings techniques has been identified as a major contributor to energy savings, especially where these techniques are introduced in conjunction with energy efficient devices. ProBEC wishes to commsion a consultant to conduct a baseline study on appropriate kitchen management and energy savings techniques.
