Products and services provided by the communities;
Achievements from activities undertaken by energy programmes which include training for users,
producers, extension workers, promotion and dissemination programmes.
Community benefits from energy technology use:
Actual changes in people’s lives, attitudes and perceptions.
User’s notes
Monitoring is a process that involves collection and analysis of data to ensure that the programme meets
the objectives, and needs of users. It is essential in establishing technology acceptability, identifying
problems related to the technology and adapting designs to meet changing needs.
It helps estimate the number of stoves in use and frequency of use and to determine the stove’s
performance compared with currently used cooking systems, thus determining if the new stove is meeting
the project specifications. It also helps determine if the targets of adoption and usage are being met, and
what other effects the introduction of improved stoves may have.
Monitoring helps determine the quantity, quality and cost of the stoves and if the production process could
be improved. It is optimal if monitoring is initiated at the beginning of the programme and continues until
the programme is completed.
