A report on techno-economic assessment of cooking technologies in India towards decarbonising the cooking sector

To facilitate a sustainable switch to electricity as the primary cooking fuel in India, several significant obstacles must be overcome, including the high upfront cost of electric cookstoves, the availability of affordable and reliable renewable electricity, and the need for behavioural change to adapt to a cultural shift. Electric cooking can be explored as a key vector in the transition to clean cooking and accordingly, this study aims to provide a techno-economic comparison between current primary cooking energy technologies used and the potential switch to electric cooking technologies.\
