Identification

Powerstove is a smokeless cookstove that cooks food 5 times faster using 70% less biomass to generate microelectricity with built-in IoT system for improved monitoring.

The smokeless biomass cookstove uses its processed, proprietary water-resistant biomass pellets as fuel. It speeds up cooking time thanks to its built-in 4 fan speed. An integrated IoT system is used to continuously upload data on cooking events in a home, giving stove stakeholders access to use measurements in near real time, without additional field visits. The cookstove dashboard shows a single day of cooking for a single household, the amount of CO2, biomass and black carbon saved and the total electricity generated. An added functionality is Powerstove's supply of micro off-grid electricity to charge phones, or LED bulbs using the built-in USB and DC port. This provides a convenient source of electricity in remote areas.
