Welcome to Eco Group
Eco Group’s primary objective is to increase access to clean energy for both off grid households and businesses whose dependency of wood and charcoal cause the greatest negative impact to Uganda’s natural resources.
Eco Group company manufactures Eco rock stoves and assembles household solar kits for energy poor households of Uganda. The Eco rock stove is a branded product of Eco Group Ltd which was incorporated in 2012, with the primary objective to increase access to clean energy for both off grid households and businesses. The Eco-stove technology is of increased efficiency which runs on solar with added benefits of lighting, mobile phone charging, FM radio and much more. This patented technology was inspired by a philosophy and a desire to produce a rather more energy efficient cook stove whose design meets real-world cooking challenges and provides real solution to institutions and the everyday persons. The eco stoves designed for larger users of wood and charcoal which contributes largely to the rate of deforestation in the country. The innovation delivers immediate environmental social economic and technologic benefit to the user.
Eco group received a grant support of 60250USD from Global Alliance for Clean Cook Stove-USA (GACC) in support of its mechanised production as well as completion of the factory structure. A grant award of 200,000USD from United Nations credit development fund (UNCDF) to develop its pay as you go technology in the eco stove and increase its sales and distribution channel networks across the country. SNV grant for capcity building in eco women entrepreneurs for rock cracking and eco stove distribution through group settings in regional hubs. Today Eco group has a fully mechanised facility here in Uganda and is in the process of commissioning for a continuous flow manufacturing facility. The company still needs to fine tune its tooling capacity for various types it currently intends to produce. This grant is however a locked grant to milestones achievement.
Energy-poor households suffer from a wide range of impacts, from increased risk of premature death due to indoor pollution to forgone productivity gains and lower quality of life.
Our innovation delivers immediate environmental social economic and technologic benefit to the user.
