EESL partners with Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) Programme for this large scale deployment.

Even though the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana aims at 100% adoption of LPG/PNG based cooking; a shift to modern cooking technologies. To accelerate a clean cooking culture in India, entrepreneurial capacities need to be strengthened. 

Energy Efficiency Services Ltd. (EESL) and the Ministry of Power along with the International Solar Alliance (ISA) have supported the first edition of the Modern Energy Cooking Forum 2022. Emphasising electricity, batteries, and solar energy, this forum was organised by the Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) and the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Programme (ESMAP), in collaboration with Finovista India, their in-country partner, at New Delhi.

The agreement between EESL and MECS is to collaborate large-scale deployment of over 20,000 electric pressure cookers and induction cooktops in the country. This deployment would accelerate modern electric cooking devices being used in Indian kitchens. Few innovative electric and solar-powered cooking devices were also exhibited by entrepreneurs across India. 

Speaking at the forum, Mr. Animesh Mishra, (Head- Sales & PR), EESL said, “As of now, electric cooking has a very low penetration in Indian households. Induction stoves and Electric Pressure Cookers (EPC) are two examples of cutting-edge modern electric cooking appliances that we are working to introduce. By reducing the risk of fire hazards, promoting convenient and efficient energy use, and lowering pollution, these appliances will help ensure the health, safety, and wellness of Indian consumers.”

While addressing the gathering, Dr. Simon Batchelor, Research & Innovation Coordinator, MECS Programme said, “We are hopeful that the first edition of the Modern Energy Cooking Forum will be significant in India’s transition toward electric & clean energy-based cooking. The adoption of modern energy efficient appliances for cooking would require a concerted effort from both government institutions as well as private companies. By successfully integrating modern energy cooking practices, India will be able to ensure affordable and reliable cooking solutions for its consumers.”
