Goal and Objectives

The goal of the RUWES project is to ensure a safe, affordable and sustainable clean energy access for all, especially the rural poor and also to reduce emission of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs).

 RUWES aims to achieve the following objectives;

  • Enhance personal health and physical environment, and the reduction of premature death rates due to black carbon inhalation
  • Create awareness and sensitization campaigns in the rural communities, on the need to reduce black carbon emission and adopt cleaner technologies through product demonstrations.
  • Create a viable market and sustainable supply chain for improved and clean energy technologies.
  • Create a source of income and serving as a means of poverty alleviation by providing energy for homes and small businesses.
  • Create access to finance for rural business incubation and entrepreneurship.
  • Phase out kerosene and oily lamps, and the traditional three-stone-fire in rural communities through the introduction of solar lighting systems and clean cook-stoves and position Nigeria as a reference point for renewable energy technologies.
  • Provide 20 million clean cook-stoves across the six-geopolitical zones in the country by the year 2020.

Establish fast growing tree plantation such as bamboo in at least 3 Geo-political zones in Nigeria. The trees will supply feed-stock for briquettes which will serve as the main fuel for improved wood-stoves.
