About BIO MASS Program

DCRDC has started to work in the Improved Cook Stove (ICS) program since 2003 August with support from AEPC/ESAP. DCRDC has been working with Baglung, Parbat, Myagdi and Kaski districts. We have looked after Syangja and Tanahun districts for the dissemination of ICS during the low cost extension period of ESAP-I and handed over the district to the corresponding RRESCs in ESAP-II. Improved cook stove program is the demand base subsidy less program. Nationally, ICS program has extended its scope and named as Biomass Energy Support Program (BESP) to explore the possibility of different biomass related energy components such as bio-briquette, metal stoves, gasifiers, rocket stoves etc.
Objectives of Biomass Energy
Specifically the objectives are:
• Improved capacity of local organizations to offer affordable biomass energy (BE) solutions to the rural communities with quality assurance.
• Address the Gender, health, environment and socio-economic issues, including reduction of women and children’s drudgery through implementation of biomass energy solutions.
• Adoption of biomass energy solutions is popularized in the rural communities
Governments Policy on Subsidy
1. No subsidy has been provided to households mud improved cook stoves in Hills and Mid Hills of Nepal.
2. Subsidy of NPR. 4000 for 3-pot hole and NPR 2700 for 2-pot hole will be provided to metal improved cook stoves in High Mountains for cooking and space heating, as they are costly and unaffordable
3. Quite a number of institutions are involved in the development of ICS. These institutions have provided various kinds of supports. Close relationship or contact with NGOs and donors will be established to make the direct and indirect support to ICS made by them more effective.
