- In order to achieve the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) subgoal of universal access to energy by 2030, clean cookstove distribution networks need to be established and rapidly scaled up to serve Indonesia’s eastern provinces, which are dependent on biomass energy for cooking. Kopernik, an Indonesia-based non-governmental organisation, has been working with Indonesian women since 2011 to introduce and sell clean biomass cookstoves in their communities. Through three years of smallscale projects, Kopernik laid the groundwork for scaling up a womendriven distribution network in Eastern Indonesia. There have been five key steps to reaching this point: (1) understanding the context; (2) finding an appropriate cookstove model; (3) introducing the cookstove and collecting feedback; (4) building the supply chain and distribution network; and (5) preparing for scale. Now, in 2015, Kopernik is ready to jump to scale and does so with its Wonder Women programme, which aims at reaching 56 000 households in three years.
