Gogle Energy-Saving Stoves and Engineering
Produces improved cook stoves and briquettes.
Gogle Energy Saving Stoves produces improved cookstoves. It also recently started producing charcoal briquettes as a source of fuel, to be sold with the stoves or separately. The products are sold to various users in Ethiopia, including international NGOs via pre-ordering and through its own shops across the country. The enterprise currently produces around 200 improved steel-made cookstoves and 5,000 kg of briquettes a day. It is expanding its operations into neighbouring Somalia.
The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) provides training and supports the transfer and diffusion of energy technologies.
Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre and Network provides training and uses the enterprise’s workshop for producing prototype energy products.
The Ministry of Water and Energy supports the enterprise in many ways, such as providing training, testing new products and granting certiﬁ cation.
The 2013 SEED Awards in Ethiopia, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania and Uganda are supported by the European Union, which is made up of 28 Member States who have decided to gradually link together their know-how, resources and destinies.
