Preparation of Injera, the cultural staple bread food item in Ethiopia, is known for its intensive energy consuming cooking. Baking this food item in the traditional three stone stoves, with an efficiency of 5–15%, consumes huge amounts of firewood and causes consequent problems like deforestation, global warming and household air pollution. Electrical injera stoves (mitads) are a sound alternative in Ethiopia because of the relatively wide availability of electricity (hydropower). However… 
Technical design, costs, and greenhouse gas emissions of solar Injera baking stoves
Abstract This paper presents the technical design, market penetration, costs, and greenhouse gas emissions of three types of stoves for baking Injera, which is a traditional flat bread and staple
Injera (An Ethnic, Traditional Staple Food of Ethiopia): A review on Traditional Practice to Scientific Developments
Injera is fermented Ethiopian ethnic traditional staple food prepared usually form teff flour [ Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter]. Almost all the Ethiopians consume this food at least once in a day.
Adoption and fuel use efficiency of mirt stove in Dilla district, southern Ethiopia
Abstract Half of the world's population relies on biomass fuels for cooking and heating, which contributes to global forest depletion that leads to environmental and human health impacts. Although
Quantifying Energy Losses on Electric Cooking Stove
An electric stove is an integrated electrical heating device to cook and bake. Electric stoves became popular as replacements for solid-fuel stoves which have required more time to cook. However,


Solar Powered Heat Storage for Injera Baking in Ethiopia
Abstract Ethiopia with a population of about 85 million meets 96% of its energy needs with bio-mass, charcoal, wood, animal dung and plant residues. More than 50% of this energy goes entirely on
Design, Optimization and CFD Simulation of Improved Biogas Burner for 'Injera' Baking in Ethiopia
Urban and rural poor peoples in Ethiopia suffer different disease due to indoor air pollution as they are still using traditional biomass based ‘injera’ or bread backing activities. Over 90% of
Urban energy transition and technology adoption: the case of Tigrai, northern Ethiopia.
Dependency of urban Ethiopian households on rural areas for about 85% of their fuel needs is a significant cause of deforestation and forest degradation, resulting in growing fuel scarcity and higher

Factors affecting households' decisions in biogas technology adoption, the case of Ofla and Mecha Districts, northern Ethiopia
This study examined the factors that influence households' decisions on adoption of biogas technology in northern Ethiopia. It involved 179 biogas-user and 179 non-user sample households. They were
Adoption and disadoption of electric cookstoves in urban Ethiopia: Evidence from panel data
Previous studies on improved cookstove adoption in developing countries use cross-sectional data, which make it difficult to control for unobserved heterogeneity and investigate what happens to
