The research phase was completed in 2012. Score now continues in many places and much has been achieved since its inception.
Score-Stove ™1, a clean cooking stove (no electricity) has been successfully trialled in Kenya.
Score-Stove ™2 has generated 23 watts of electricity using wood as the fuel and 37 watts under laboratory conditions.
Score-Stove ™3 is a compact thermo-electric unit that is being tested at Kathmandu University in Nepal.
There are Score-Centres in Malaysia, Bangladesh, Kenya and Nepal that are testing stoves with local communities.
The NGO (charity) Practical Action is working with rural people to evaluate the stoves and ensure we get the best design. Universities such as BUET and Kathmandu University are modifying the stoves so that they are acceptable for local cooking needs. The University of Nottingham and its Malaysian campus are advancing research into the low-cost electrically generating technology.
