Our mission is to enable clean cooking and sustainable energy for Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.

African Clean Energy (ACE) is the producer of the ACE 1 solar biomass energy system: an advanced cookstove which reduces smoke emissions to negligible levels. The ACE 1 is among the cleanest and most high-tech stoves currently available, providing clean cooking with a range of biomass fuels as well as offering solar electricity for mobile phone charging and LED lighting.

  • Today, three billion people worldwide are cooking on open fires or using dirty and dangerous fuels. There are a huge number of negative impacts attributable to these practices: indoor air pollution contributes to 4 million deaths every year*, more than HIV/AIDS and Malaria combined, and disproportionately affects women and children.

  • Cooksmoke is responsible for environmental degradation from greenhouse gas emissions as well as deforestation.

  • For people without access to modern energy sources cooking and lighting fuel can take up a large portion of their income, increasing poverty and limiting opportunities for development.
