Ekasi Energy

Ekasi Energy produces biomass cooking fuel and clean cooking appliances for informal settlements with little or no grid power. The alternative clean energy solutions reduce health threats caused by burning wood, charcoal and paraffin fires usually used for cooking.

Ekasi Energy manufactures biomass pellets, a natural fuel from compressed wood waste. To make this clean alternative an attractive fuel for informal off-grid households, the FAABulous Cooking Stove was designed to eliminate household threats of smoke from burning paraffin or charcoal while reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the same time.

In addition, the FAABulous Clean Energy Appliances make use of the latest solar generation and battery storage technology to power low-voltage lighting, mobile devices and other household appliances.
