This site consists of low cost efficient Good Stoves designed by Dr. N. Sai Bhaskar Reddy,  Geoecology Energy Organisation (GEO) for people using biomass as fuel. All the stove designs are declared as OHANDA / Open Knowledge for communities to adopt or adapt. 

Individual components of each stove design are existing on this earth in some form or the other, thanks to the community, stovers and mother earth for helping me to think and design. These stove designs are kept in an open knowledge shelf to choose or adopt or adaptation by communities. The options are open - to use them "as it is" /  "change or redesign as per the need" / "bring the same result through different design". 

Good Stoves yield biochar as a byproduct, which can be useful for biocharculture aspects. See Biochar India web link for my work on this aspect. And also the book on BIOCHARCULTURE

This initiative is also for being the cause for adoption of "one million good stoves" by the communities achievable through, partnerships, participation, awareness, adoption, and convergence of programmes, knowledge sharing, adaptation, etc.

The challenge is to reach millions of people, GOOD STOVES has the potential to reach the goal, as today's best is tomorrow's good and good technologies are accessible by majority of communities.
