Practical Action is a global change making group that works in unconventional ways. We bring people together in bold collaborations, using knowledge and innovation, to build futures free from poverty and help shape a world that works better for everyone. It is focused on putting ingenious ideas into work to contribute to poverty reduction and sustainable wellbeing. Practical Action is implementing a GIZ EnDev funded “Market activation of electric cooking in Nepal” project. The project aims to develop a sustainable market system of e-cooking solutions with increased adoption rate by households and MSMEs. The project targets to disseminate at least 10,000 efficient electric cooking appliances by June 2023.
Practical Action calls for the second round of expression of interest (EOI) from electric cooking appliances (induction, infrared and electric pressure cooker) manufacturers/suppliers/dealers to list their appliances for promotion by the project. The project helps to create market for the listed appliances which meet the required quality standards, through supply chain strengthening, capacity building of market actors and financial incentives for retailing. For already listed induction cooktops in the project, there is no need to submit application again.
Interested parties can download the EOI template from the supporting documents section. The application cover letter should be marked as “EOI for listing of Efficient Electric Cooking Appliances” and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than 17:00 hrs, Monday, 15 August 2022.
