2022 Clean Cooking Industry Snapshot




The 2022 Snapshot identifies investment and operational trends among for-profit clean cooking companies in low- and middle-income countries. According to the 2022 Snapshot, investment in clean cooking companies remains in the tens of millions of dollars, falling short of the billions needed to achieve universal access to clean cooking. Between 2014 and 2020, investment in clean cooking companies grew at a compound annual growth rate of 20%, with 88% of capital originating from the private sector. Even if this growth rate continues, investment levels in clean cooking companies fall far short of the US $4.5 billion required annually to reach the 2.6 billion people still relying on polluting fuels and technologies.
