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.
